A must-watch this spooky season!

Released in cinemas here in July, Talk To Me quickly became one of the most talked about scary movies of the year, thanks to the fact that pretty much everyone who went to see it agreed that it might well be the best horror of 2023.

If you missed it during its cinema run, then we’ve got good news for you, as Netflix have added it to their streaming service much sooner than anyone expected and just in time for Halloween!

Talk To Me tells the story of a group of friends who discover how to conjure spirits using an embalmed hand. They soon become hooked on the new thrill, until one of them goes too far and unleashes terrifying supernatural forces.

The trailer for Talk To Me is scarier than most full horror movies

The movie cost just $4.5 million to produce, but managed to bank over $72.5 million worldwide, successful enough to already have a sequel greenlit; the cleverly titled Talk 2 Me.

Critics also loved the movie, granting it a score of 95% on Rotten Tomatoes:

Chicago Sun-Times – “Like that damn disembodied hand, Talk to Me will keep you in its grips throughout.”

Paste – “Fierce, fun, and steeped in youthful energy, it’s a film that’s willing to go to some truly dark places in its exploration of grief, death and what it means when we reach too far into the beyond, but it’s also never afraid to laugh along the way.”

Collider – “Whether you can stomach it enough to make it all the way will depend on the viewer, but Talk To Me has plenty that promises to capture the souls of horror sickos looking for a sinister spectacle.”

Talk To Me is available to watch on Netflix now.
