Talk to Me

In Australia, a gang of teenagers finds out how to summon spirits. After a few group sessions, someone goes too far and opens the door to the world of the dead. A scourge of supernatural visitors walks among the living, unleashing cases of possession at every turn. The group of youngsters is forced to choose whom to trust: the living or the dead.
Twin brothers Danny and Michael Philippou, who have made their name with controversial YouTube videos, are making their directorial debut here with a horror film that is both shocking and viral in equal measure and transposes the excesses and the satire of live action found on the Internet to the narrative demands of the cinema. The result is an adrenaline-fuelled mix of comedy, fear and incredible visions that is hard to forget!
