9. The Voices

Release Year: 2014

Written By: Michael R. Perry

Directed By: Marjane Satrapi

Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick, Jacki Weaver

Before Ryan Reynolds relaunched his career as the sassy anithero in Deadpool, he starred as the dangerous mixture of Dexter meets Dr. Doolittle in The Voices. Because in the film, Reynolds’ character can communicate with animals… and he kills people.

Jerry (Reynolds) might be a nice guy, but in secret, he weathers the effects of delusions and hallucinations. His dog, Bosco, and cat, Mr. Whiskers, talk to him and convince him to murder his work crush Fiona (Gemma Arterton) after she blows off their date. Reasonable.

The Voices might not be like the other hold-your-breath, “Don’t go in there!” horror movies on this list, but Ryan Reynolds sells the quirky blend of black comedy and killer thriller. Also starring Academy Award nominees Jacki Weaver and Anna Kendrick, The Voices is asking to be the feature of your next movie night– not just hearing things.
