“The Voices” is a black comedy horror film directed by Marjane Satrapi and written by Michael R. Perry. The film stars Ryan Reynolds as Jerry Hickfang, a seemingly mild-mannered factory worker who hears voices in his head. These voices belong to his pets, a cat named Mr. Whiskers and a dog named Bosco, who urge him to commit heinous acts of violence.
As Jerry tries to navigate his increasingly chaotic life, he becomes infatuated with a co-worker named Fiona, played by Gemma Arterton. However, his attempts to pursue a relationship with her are hindered by his disturbed mental state and his pets’ influence.
The film received mixed reviews from critics, with praise for Reynolds’ performance and the film’s dark humor, but criticism for its uneven tone and handling of mental illness. Despite this, “The Voices” has gained a cult following since its release.
