‘Talk to me’ Review: Ever since the spine-chilling release of William Friedkin and Peter Blatty’s The Exorcist, unsuspecting viewers have been left trembling in their seats, some even requiring medical attention.
This bone-chilling masterpiece from 1973 ignited a terrifying trend in the world of possession films, delving deep into the sinister fascination with the divide between generations.
Cinema’s attempt at a subtle metaphor falls flat in the spine-chilling portrayal of a young child oozing black goo from their eyes, leaving the horrified adults in a state of terror.
It is, however, one of the most enduring horrors that will haunt your nightmares.

Talk to Me delivers a bone-chilling horror experience with its exceptional cast of teenagers, who embark on a terrifying journey to free the tormented spirits of the damned from Jade’s younger brother, Riley.
Beware, for the mischievous little scamp appears alarmingly near, unsettlingly so. Jade’s friend Mia is a haunting presence, lurking in the shadows of his life, a twisted reflection of a sisterly bond.
They drag him into the twisted world of the film’s raucous parties, where the air is thick with a sense of impending doom. These gatherings, foolishly centred around the macabre act of summoning spirits through a mummified hand, plunge him into a nightmarish descent into the unknown.

Throughout the majority of Talk to Me, a chilling sense of dread lingers as the hapless teenagers desperately attempt to rectify the horrifying consequences of their actions.

Amidst the chaos, a once-close bond with a younger sibling unravels, leaving them haunted by the sinister consequences of their actions. Brace yourself for a bone-chilling journey into the heart of darkness.
