Created for Drafthouse Films' THE ABCS OF DEATH '26th Director' competition, TALKBACK (formerly titled T IS FOR TALK RADIO) marks CINEMA VISCERA's first foray into the horror genre. A commentary on the culture of fear and distrust spread by the media post-9/11, it's the story of a housewife (Perri Cummings) who becomes infected with the vitriolic words of a bigoted talk show host (Michael Bishop), with disastrous consequences for her Muslim neighbours (Kath Halliday and Emilio Sellitto).
