We can finally sink our fangs into 2023's best horror now that it's finally landed on Netflix today just in time for Halloween.
The acclaimed Aussie paranormal thriller, Talk to Me, first hit theatres this summer (28 July), and horror lovers all over can finally watch from the comfort - and safety - of our sofas. Check out the trailer here:
Now, Talk to Me clearly has some pretty big boots to fill after being compared to The Exorcist - the 1973 spooky supernatural horror which is arguably one of the best movies ever made.
I mean, considering the fact it continues to leave people too scared to sleep after watching it even 50 years after its release - I'd say that's a pretty decent flick.
But, it seems to be living up to its expectations after viewers praised it as '10/10' with many hailing it as 'one of the best horror movies' they've ever seen.
In case you missed it when it was first released last year, the film - directed by Danny Philippou and Michael Philippou - follows the story of a 17-year-old girl named Mia (Sophie Wilde) who is struggling with the second anniversary of her mother’s death and her emotionally distant relationship with her father, Max.
One night, she sneaks out to a party where the main attraction is an odd severed embalmed hand, which they use to conjure spirits.
Basically, conjuring spirits has become the latest party craze among the teens and in desperate need for a distraction amid the anniversary of her mother’s death approaches, Mia takes part in the otherworldly shenanigans.
The hand serves as a direct line to spirits, however, the teens are unprepared for the disastrous consequences that unfold when they bend the rules through prolonged contact with the hand.
As the boundary between our world and the other world collapses, a whole bunch of disturbing supernatural encounters take place as Mia finds herself in the centre of the chaos.
Consider me on the edge of my seat.
Talk to Me has since attracted admirers all across the globe since its premiere and now UK audiences will soon be able to watch the film from the comfort of their own homes with Netflix streaming the horror from today (26 October).

"The movie Talk To Me was one of the best horror movies I watched in a long time 10/10," penned one X, formerly Twitter, user.
A second praised: "Talk To Me is definitely one of the best movies this year."
"One of the best movies I've seen in a while, period, horror or otherwise," echoed a third.
Talk to Me is available to stream on Netflix as of today (26 October).
