Created by YouTuber-turned-filmmaker brothers Danny and Michael Philippou, Talk to Me is an Australian supernatural horror set to debut on the big screen this summer. The movie centers on a young woman, Mia (Sophie Wilde), as she and her friend group become hooked on a morbid new pastime: using a mysterious embalmed hand, the youngsters have figured out how to communicate with the spirit realm. Still grieving from the recent loss of her mother, Mia has more of an emotional reaction to the activity than her friends, who see the sessions as a joke – even going so far as to film the communications for social media. The group’s devil-may-care attitude (no pun intended) regarding the dead soon unleashes terrifying forces, placing the friends in grave danger. Talk to Me serves as part of A24’s summer line-up of 2023.

Watch the Talk to Me Trailer
A24 released a trailer for Talk to Me via their official YouTube channel on April 11, 2023. The trailer currently sits at almost ten million views, a testament to the level of anticipation surrounding the movie. We begin with Mia and her friend Jade watching the mysterious séances on social media before Mia expresses an interest in joining in with the group – after all, it’s her mother’s remembrance day, and Mia wants nothing more than to let off a little steam with her peers. When Mia and Jade join their friends, self-appointed paranormal expert Hayley lets them know the most important rule: physical contact with the embalmed hand that serves as their conduit must last no longer than ninety seconds, otherwise the spirits will “want to stay”. Mia can be seen holding onto the hand and uttering the three words that will put her in touch with the spirit realm. Initially enchanted by the “other side” and feeling a connection to her deceased mother, dark and dangerous entities soon begin to spread poison into Mia’s life and the lives of those around her.
A second trailer for Talk to Me was released by A24 on June 6, 2023. In it, we see the group briefly discussing the origins of the hand. Although no one is clear exactly where it came from, there are rumors among the friends that it previously belonged to a psychic, or perhaps a Satanist. Additionally, we see the communications with the dead begin to change from a fun pastime to a dangerous, life-changing mistake. Mia worries that they opened the “door” to something evil without knowing how to properly close it, as those around her struggle with the fact that no one’s safety is guaranteed. As well as the strong performances and captivating storyline, the trailers showcase A24s unique and aesthetic style fans have come to know and love.
