Talk to Me, one of the most anticipated horror movies of the year, has finally received an international release! Talk to Me debuted in theaters across America, Australia, and the UK on July 27, 2023, and the film has been heralded as one of the scariest of the year.
The film was directed by twin brothers Danny and Michael Philippou, best known for their YouTube channel RackaRacka. Talk to Me marks their feature directorial debut, and what an impressive debut it is! Talk to Me has received almost unanimous praise, with a 94% approval score on Rotten Tomatoes and an official “Certified Fresh” seal.
Talk to Me is a classic horror story about friends messing around with dark supernatural forces—in this case, summoned through an embalmed hand—and everything going wrong. But the Philippou brothers do an excellent job keeping the story fresh and harrowing. This is a horror movie perfect for long-time fans of the genre who need something new to shake them up.
Given the hype surrounding this film, it’s no surprise everyone is wondering where to watch it. Will Talk to Me be on Netflix? Will the Australian horror film stream anywhere specific after its theatrical run? Here’s what we know.
Will Talk to Me be on Netflix after theaters?
There are no plans for Talk to Me to come to Netflix after its theatrical run, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Netflix has worked with A24 on projects like The Deepest Breath, White Noise, and Beef. We usually know in advance if the company’s films will be on Netflix, which isn’t the case this time.
However, Netflix has several excellent horror movies available, including His House, The Ring, The Perfection, Apostle, and Cam.
UPDATE October 2023: Although Talk to Me won’t be available on Netflix U.S., it’s just been added to Netflix in the UK and Ireland.
Where to watch Talk to Me
For now, you can only see the horror movie by going to your nearest cinema. Websites like Fandango will help you determine where and when Talk to Me is playing near you.
No word yet on where this movie will stream afterward. It will probably end up on Showtime, but stay tuned to Netflix Life for updates if the film comes to Netflix.
