The pic's tone is all over the place, from the bright red razor slash that underscores its opening titles to the "Amelie"-esque flights of fancy along the way.

At least Reynolds looks like a man finding his way to take risks once more.

Grisly but not especially suspenseful, tongue-in-cheek without any real wit, "The Voices" aims to hit the intersection of horror and comedy but tumbles into an uncanny valley of tedious creepiness.

The bolts are loose, the belts won't fasten and Satrapi's disreputable little creepshow finally doesn't amount to a hill of beans. Maybe that's fine.

A wild, occasionally hilarious genre crossbreed that features a terrific performance from Ryan Reynolds.

Full-force performance form Ryan Reynolds but not as funny as it hopes it is.
