Umbrella, Maslow and 387 have today unveiled a first look image for TALK TO ME, the directorial debut from YouTube sensation filmmaking twin brothers Danny and Michael Philippou a.k.a. RackaRacka which recently wrapped production in Adelaide, Australia. International sales agent Bankside Films will be showing a promo of the high-concept horror to buyers in Cannes.
When a group of friends discover how to conjure spirits using an ancient embalmed hand, they become hooked on the new thrill, until one of them goes too far and opens the door to the spirit world. Increasingly haunted by supernatural visions, the friends unwittingly prompt a devastating possession, forcing them to choose who to trust: the dead or the living.
Best known for their comic horror and action shorts, the Philippou brothers (RackaRacka) have amassed over 1.5 billion views with 6.5+ million subscribers across their social media channels. RackaRacka were named one of Variety’s FameChangers and ranked 5th on the Australian Financial Review’s Cultural Power List. The screenplay was written by Danny Philippou alongside regular RackaRacka collaborator Bill Hinzman.
TALK TO ME will be produced by Kristina Ceyton and Samantha Jennings of Australian production powerhouse, Causeway Films. Umbrella Entertainment will be handling Australian sales, while 387 Distribution will handle New Zealand. Ari Harrison of Umbrella Entertainment will serve as Executive Producer. The film has received major production investment from Screen Australia, in association with the South Australian Film Corporation, and financed with support from the Adelaide Film Festival, Hold Standard and KOJO Studios.
