Interview: Talk To Me directors Danny and Michael Philippou on executing their horror success

After previewing at the 2022 Adelaide Film Festival, before taking the world by storm at its global Sundance Film Festival premiere earlier this year (read our review here), Talk To Me has become the little horror that could.

A supernatural horror experience unlike any other, Talk To Me is the twisted brainchild of Australian filmmaking duo Danny and Michael Philippou, aka RackaRacka – the YouTube channel created by the brothers that highlighted their love of all things horrific and humorous.

As the film prepares to converse with an unsuspecting public from July 27th, Peter Gray spoke with the twins about executing jump scares, how working on The Babadook was influential in their career, and if we can expect their love of wrestling to ever cross over into their horror-fuelled minds.

Seasoned film critic. Gives a great interview. Penchant for horror. Unashamed fan of Michelle Pfeiffer and Jason Momoa.
