The Voices revolves around the life of Jerry (Ryan Reynolds), a seemingly normal man and an upbeat newbie at a bathtub factory. However, something about this friendly co-worker seems completely off. Turns out, Jerry is a schizophrenic who is undergoing therapy with Dr. Warren (Jacki Weaver). Having rejected his medication over a long time makes Jerry hallucinate and indulge in daily conversations with his pets ‘Mr. Whiskers’, a sadistic tabby cat and Bosco his affable dog. Their ‘voices’ influence Jerry to take on all sorts of crazy stunts. Trouble escalates in his merry life when one fine day, Jerry is turned down by his office crush. This triggers a series of sinister impulses that ultimately lead Jerry to commit a gruesome murder. But, that’s just the beginning of a disturbing turn of events waiting to unfold. With this opens a Pandora’s box of the dark underbelly and unsettling details from Jerry’s past and a series of troubling encounters that only make matters worse for Jerry.
Will he strive for normalcy or indulge in a much more sinister path?
