THE SCRIBBLER Trailer: Katie Cassidy vs. An Identity Disorder

     July 31, 2014

Even knowing next to nothing about the Daniel Schaffer graphic novel, with a cast including Katie Cassidy, Garret Dillahunt, Eliza Dushku, Michelle Trachtenberg, Sasha Grey and Michael Imperioli, John Suits’ big screen adaptation of The Scribbler quickly got my attention.  The film focuses on Cassidy’s Suki, a character who opts to use a new form of treatment to annihilate her multiple personalities caused by a dissociative identity disorder.

The concept is interesting and the brand new trailer has some curious imagery to go along with it, but as someone with no prior knowledge of the source material, I’m still having a tough time wrapping my head around who The Scribbler is and what she’s capable of.  There’s something intriguing about it, but nothing concrete enough to establish much of a draw.  Check out The Scribbler trailer for yourself after the jump.  The film arrives on iTunes and On Demand on September 19th.

Here’s a synopsis of the film via XLrator Media:

THE SCRIBBLER follows Suki (Katie Cassidy), a young woman confronting her destructive mental illness using “The Siamese Burn,” an experimental machine designed to eliminate multiple personalities. The closer Suki comes to being “cured,” she’s haunted by a thought… what if the last unwanted identity turns out to be her?

And if you want a little more, here’s the synopsis of the graphic novel via Amazon:

We’re all part Yin and part Yang, but Suki’s Yang is trying to get out! Witness the Siamese Burn, an experimental machine designed to eliminate multiple personalities. And it works! Suki is down to her last unwanted identity, but now she’s losing time and the machine is changing into something that’s going to turn her world inside out. And that unwanted identity… what do you do when it turns out to be you?
