‘Talk To Me’ Trailer: Possession Goes Viral In A24’s New Horror Arriving Next Month

What would you do if you discovered a severed, cursed, embalmed hand that allows you to speak with the dead? Okay, you might try it out ONCE, but would you make an Internet challenge out of it? Turn it into a game that goes viral? Maybe you would, but you’d be stupid; the kind of stupid they make movies about. Like the upcoming A24 horror, Talk to Me, which opens next month.

A standout hit from this past Sundance Film Festival, Talk To Me centers on one particularly stupid youngster who becomes hooked on using the cursed hand to reach conjure spirits, until the inevitable happens and deadly forces are unleashed.

The film stars Sophie Wilde, Miranda Otto, Alexandra Jensen, Joe Bird, Otis Dhanji, Zoe Terakes, and Chris Alosio. Danny Philippou and Michael Philippou teamed up to direct, and have impressed enough that they’re also working on the upcoming Street Fighter movie.

Talk to Me opens in theaters on July 28th.

When a group of friends discover how to conjure spirits using an embalmed hand, they become hooked on the new thrill, until one of them goes too far and unleashes terrifying supernatural forces.
