Talk to Me is the terrifying debut horror film from twin brothers Danny and Michael Philippou, famous for their popular YouTube channel @Therackaracka. Reportedly acquired by prestige distributor A24 (Hereditary, Bodies Bodies Bodies), this grotesque ghost story is sure to rattle horror audiences once released.

Check out our interview with Danny and Michael Philippou about their film below, which I described as “a glimpse into a putrid, hopeless, and shockingly grotesque afterlife” in my four-star review.

The Talk to Me synopsis, according to Sundance:

Conjuring spirits has become the latest local party craze, and looking for a distraction on the anniversary of her mother’s death, teenage Mia (Sophie Wilde) is determined to get a piece of the otherworldly action. When her group of friends gathers for another unruly séance with the mysterious embalmed hand that promises a direct line to the spirits, they’re unprepared for the consequences of bending the rules through prolonged contact. As the boundary between worlds collapses and disturbing supernatural visions increasingly haunt Mia, she rushes to undo the horrific damage before it’s irreversible.
