Review: THE SCRIBBLER

THE SCRIBBLER is one of those films that is both visually stunning and odd, which can actually be a great combination, and mandatory viewing for those souls who find themselves wanting to venture out and watch something different, and exciting. Early in the film, we meet Suki (Katie Cassidy). Suki suffers from multiple personality disorder, […]
