Sundance movie eleven: If your dog and cat talk to you, be worried.

Let's say your cat talks to you. And your dog too. And this all seems normal. Let me give you a little advice. This is not normal. Get professional help immediately.

The Voices, directed by Marjane Satrapi and written by Michael R. Perry tells the story of Jerry (Ryan Reynolds) who works at the Milton Bathtub Factory. He's single and lives a life you might expect from a bachelor.  He's got a dog, Bosco and a devious cat, Mr. Whiskers.  When Jerry meets Fiona, a woman who works in accounting at the bathtub company, his conversations with his pets take a sinister turn.

If you like quirky, let's say downright weird movies that are well acted, well directed, and include bizarre scenes in which (SPOILER ALERT) people get killed in inventive ways, this movie is for you.  If like me, you find the dark comedy of strange serial-killer thrillers less than thrilling, you might want to be a little leery about seeing The Voices.
