The latest images from the upcoming supernatural horror film, Talk To Me, shine a spotlight on demonic possession. Released by Fandango, these photos display Mia (portrayed by Sophie Wilde) standing beside the demonic entity she has inadvertently invited into her house following a viral challenge. She and her friends must evade the curse before it claims them. It’s always a perilous game to engage with anything apparently possessed, but when a group of youths are ready to do anything to trend on social media, the entity attached to the object finds itself with no alternative.
The initial trailer for Talk To Me offered a more in-depth insight into the film’s plot, gradually revealing the malevolent artifact that lies at the heart of the conflict. One of Mia’s friends discovers a disembodied hand, capable of movement on its own, suggesting it is inhabited by a potent consciousness. Instead of promptly disposing of the hand in the closest fire, the youngsters choose to record their direct interactions with it. Indifferent to the potential threats of engaging with an object filled with malevolent forces, they continue filming on their smartphones while they still can.
However, the disembodied hand is not to be taken lightly, and as the high school students start to place their trust in it, the demon within seizes control of their minds. It falls on Mia, Jade (Alexandra Jensen), and Riley (Joe Bird) to stay clear of their own friends to prevent them from inflicting harm. In a complex situation, the monsters out to destroy them end up being the ones they hold dear. This supernatural horror story, set in Gen-Z culture, takes a dramatic turn when the friends allow the disembodied hand to take over their lives. Nothing will be the same again.

If Talk To Me proves to be a hit, directors Danny and Michael Philippou have further narratives lined up. During a FilmSweep interview, the duo discussed their plans for potential sequels: “There’s a deep mythology and a story behind everything, even the inscriptions on the hand, the spirits connected with each character’s emotions. We’ve thoroughly fleshed out and encapsulated this mythology in what we refer to as the mythology bible. Hopefully, we can broaden this if a sequel happens. We wanted the characters to feel out of their depths. We’ve only hinted at it in this film, but yes, it’s all planned and there’s an extensive background story.”
