A24 is doing a sequel to the wildly successful Talk To Me horror film
| Last updated
The terrifying flick has attracted loads of headlines since it debuted.
It even managed to become the highest rated horror film of 2023 on Rotten Tomatoes and is currently sitting at a 95 per cent rating on the site.
The critical consensus reads: "With a gripping story and impressive practical effects, Talk to Me spins a terrifically creepy 21st-century horror yarn built on classic foundations."
The movie was a directorial debut for Australian filmmakers Danny and Michael Philippou and they always had a followup in mind when they were making the first.
Danny told Entertainment Weekly earlier this year: "Yeah, yeah. We'd love to [make a sequel]
"We had stuff that we planted that in the first film [and] would love the opportunity to do a sequel.
"It would be so exciting. The idea of having my own horror franchise — how awesome."
Well, they have officially got what they wanted as A24 has commissioned another instalment.
Talk To Me follows a group of friends who discover how to conjure spirits using an embalmed hand, leading them to become hooked on the new thrill.
However, things turn ugly when one of them goes too far and unleashes terrifying supernatural forces.
Clarisse Loughrey from The Independent gave the film four-stars and praised it for paying homage to classic '80s horror.
“Its practical effects are effective, rendering it dead in bloated, blotchy, dripping flesh. And when the spirits reveal more demonic, subversive desires, the tricks they play on the living are delivered with a taunt and a giggle,” she added.
Other critics said the film was a ‘sleek and stylish ride’ while offering a clever ‘social commentary about teenage behaviours’.
However, this film is definitely not for the fainted hearted.
Some viewers say it has one of the most terrifying scenes in recent horror film history.
One person said they were so scared they almost 'started praying', while another said the 'entire theatre was screaming' through this moment.
Someone even claimed '10 people walked out' of the cinema they were in when it flashed onto the screen.
Look, don't say we didn't warn you.
But, we will also be getting another side to the Talk To Me story.
Danny and Michael Philippou revealed they have already filmed a prequel about a character named Duckett, who is seen early on in the film.
Danny told The Hollywood Reporter: "We actually shot an entire Duckett prequel already.
"It's told entirely through the perspective of mobile phones and social media, so maybe down the line we can release that."
