A D-grade extravaganza of unpleasantness.

The Scribbler doesn't live up to its premise, but it still has some good scenes and provides food for thought.

The Scribbler is overwrought, absurd, occasionally exploitative, completely lacking in subplot, takes a good 20-25 minutes to really get going and has acting that varies from excellent to, well, less-than-excellent. It's also hugely fun!

With its endless edginess and unhealthy obsession with madness at its most flamboyant, The Scribbler strains to be a cult film, but even the most diehard lovers of cinema strangeness may find it ultimately too nonsensical and needlessly overwrought.

The film exudes a grunge look and a grunge feel while it shifts gears and genres.

Gloriously bonkers! The Scribbler is fearless in its willingness to go right over the edge, which makes it a treat for fans of science-fiction madness.

While The Scribbler isn't exactly in contention with the best that the comic book genre has to offer, Katie Cassidy utilizes the numerous voices in her head to create a unique hero for a bit of stylized freshness.
