Disturbing horror film Talk To Me is leaving horrified fans 'sick to their stomachs'
| Last updated
If you’re in the market for something darker than current box office smash Barbie, then renowned production company A24’s latest movie may be right up your street - as it's apparently scaring people silly.
The Aussie movie is directed by brothers Danny and Michael Philippou and stars Sophie Wilde, Joe Bird, Alexandra Jensen and Otis Dhanji - and tells the story of a group of pals who dabble with the supernatural with the usual disastrous results.
An official synopsis reads: “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.”
Well that doesn’t sound ideal, does it?
The movie has a very respectable 7.5 on IMDB and a near-perfect 95 percent critics' score on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes.
Cinema-goers have flocked to X - or Twitter as it used to be known - to heap praise on the creepy movie, with one person writing: “There was one point during Talk To Me where I had to remind myself I had the option to leave at any point.
"I can’t remember the last time a movie made me want to leave from the sheer anxiety/tension. Better yet one that made me watch from between my fingers. Brilliant stuff!”
“Pop this with Barbarian and It Follows on the list of horror that came out of nowhere and killed it. Talk To Me is my horror highlight of the year so far and a massive recommend,” said a second.
While a third added: “For the first time ever I contemplated walking out of the theatre. Mind you I was the only one at my 12pm showing.
"What they do with the sound and perfectly timed visuals had me so immersed that it made me the most uncomfortable I've been watching a movie in a while.”
Another commented: “I wanted to leave the theatre but the subject matter of the film made me sick to my stomach and I was near losing consciousness in my seat. 10/10.”
Someone else gushed: “I still cannot get over f**king Talk To Me. I am literally still sitting here processing everything. This is my new hyper-fixation and I literally am so excited for more people to watch something so original and refreshing within the horror genre.”
Talk To Me is showing in cinemas in the UK right now.
