John Suits’ upcoming action/sci-fi hybrid The Scribbler will arrive both in theaters and on various VOD platforms beginning September 18th, 2014. Though it isn’t straight horror, this upcoming release won’t be without horror overtones.
The Scribbler features a pretty impressive cast that includes Katie Cassidy (Black Christmas 2006), Sasha Grey (Would You Rather), Garret Dillahunt (The Last House on the Left 2009), Michelle Trachtenberg (Six Feet Under), Michael Imperioli (The Call), Eliza Dushku (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and several other recognizable names.
The film is directed by John Suits (Breathing Room) and the screenplay is adapted by Dan Schafer (Doghouse) from his graphic novel of the same name.
The Scribbler follows Suki (Katie Cassidy), a young woman suffering from dissociative identity disorder, as she attempts an experimental cure for the disease with which she if afflicted. The treatment Suki undergoes is known as The Siamese Burn – it goes through each alternate identity and kills them off systematically. As Suki’s alters are eliminated one by one, she starts to worry that her true identity will soon be deemed unwanted and subsequently eliminated as well.
