The Marjane Satrapi-directed “The Voices,” starring Anna Kendrick and Ryan Reynolds, opened last night at Toronto. Film is getting mitigated returns from the press, Jason Gorber of TWITCH writing in his review that, “The Voices is a silly, schizoid film, but for some it may be profound, reveling in its collision of ideas and tone.”
Celluloidz, a French online publication on the horror genre wrote, “The Voices” is an excellent surprise in the fantastic genre by a filmmaker you’d have never imagined in such an exercise.”
BIZ: It was just announced that UK’s purveyor of cult and horror fare (among others, their catalog is meaty) just picked up the UK rights. The film was produced by 1984 Private Defense Contractors, Mandalay Vision, Studio Babelsberg and Vertigo Entertainment. Stateside, Lionsgate will be distributing the film in a deal that was struck this past March. Panorama Media handles international sales.
