The Scribbler (2014) Movie Review and Trailer

Movie: The Scribbler (2014)
Cast: Katie Cassidy, Eliza Dushku, Sasha Grey
Genre: Thriller

The Scribbler (2014) is a well-made psychological thriller that aims to tackle a very complex topic of multiple personality disorder. With movies like Fight Club and Primal Fear achieving greatness through the proper exploitation of this topic, it remains no secret that with a mildly well-managed story surrounding multiple personality and an apt actor playing the lead The Scribbler stands a fair chance at creating an impression. The movie to be fair is not at all outstanding, but still has an entertainment value that ensures that audiences do not lose interest.
The cast showcases a reasonable amount of fire in the form of Katie Cassidy, Eliza Dushku and Sasha Grey. The actors, especially Katie Cassidy, have done justice to the plot to their best abilities. What lacks, maybe, is an attractive or popular male actor who could attract some female attention and bring some class to the entire project.
Multiple Personality Disorder is an interesting subject in its own and the sound of it renders a mystery to the movie that is bound to catch audiences. The Scribbler does a decent job of not sapping that down. It is however, a little far-fetched, dwelling too much into mutation and metaphysics that staying in the domain of psychology.
All in all people should give it a try, although it might not be everyone's cuppa tea.

Ranking: 3/5
