Talk to Me Filming Locations

‘Talk to Me’ was filmed entirely in Australia, especially in Adelaide. The original plan was to begin shooting in early 2021, but ultimately, it was pushed back. According to reports, principal photography for the horror movie finally commenced in late February 2022 and wrapped up in early April of the same year. Now, without much ado, let’s traverse all the specific locations that appear in the movie!

Adelaide, Australia

Almost all the pivotal sequences for ‘Talk to Me’ were lensed in South Australia’s capital city, Adelaide. The production team reportedly traveled across the city to tape different interior and exterior sequences against suitable backdrops. For instance, the residential suburb of Mawson Lakes in Adelaide’s City of Salisbury served as one of the prominent production locations for the Sophie Wilde starrer.

Apart from that, the filming unit reportedly set up camp in the suburbs of Glenside and Pooraka, both in Adelaide. The impressive opening sequence, which consists of many dynamics, makes for a propulsive start to the story. Concerning that particular scene, the directors Danny and Michael Philippou were asked if they remembered the intricate details of shooting that scene by Roger Ebert in July 2023. Danny said, “We really had to build up to that opening. It was actually the last scene we shot, so the whole film felt like it was building up to executing this gigantic sequence.”

Michael continued, “…Finding that house was difficult. We were originally supposed to wrap at 2:30 AM, and that’s when we started shooting it. We ended up doing ten takes, and every shot was slowly getting better, but it’s such a massive undertaking.” Danny picked it up again, saying that they had to knock down ten different doors, but on the final door, they hit the bullseye. He added, “…Our poor actor—Ari McCarthy, who plays Cole—had to smash down ten doors that night, so he was sore afterward, but he was game. It was a team effort, all of our cast and crew members calling for extras and fans to come out, dragging more and more people onto the set. ”
