An Australian horror thriller tops the DVD releases for the week of Oct. 3
"Talk to Me": The directorial debut of twin brothers Danny and Michael Philippou (who go by RackaRacka on YouTube) concerns a group of teens who become obsessed with connecting to spirits via a plaster hand, with things eventually going too far.
“'Talk to Me' is a relatively simple story with larger existential themes of grief, guilt and the multifaceted spiritual connection between mothers and daughters," writes Tribune News Service critic Katie Walsh in her review. "The concept is deftly and artfully executed by the Philippou brothers, who don’t fall back on cheap jump scares, but rely on a dexterous cinematic style and grisly imagery to make a film that is truly dark and terrifying."
