I Felt Like I Was Going Crazy Watching This
The ONLY reason I watched this is because I like Katie Cassidy, and I'll give anything she's in a chance, such as Supernatural, Harper's Island, Melrose Place, Arrow, Black Christmas, and Kill for Me. However, The Scribbler was a movie that - IMO - was not very good.
It's about a young woman, Suki (Katie Cassidy) who has multiple personalities. One of her personalities is attracted to the only man in the building. Yes, Katie has a rather lengthy topless sex scene. The place she's living is a halfway house for mentally and socially unstable people who are somewhat possible to rehabilitate. The place she resides is called Juniper Towers, but people call it Jumper Towers because some of the inhabitants tend to jump to their deaths. Suki is the prime suspect, and this movie begins with her being interrogated, which leads to the movie being a big flashback, with the sporadic jump to the present. It does have an interesting twist at the end, but having to sit through the rest of this movie to get to that twist is not a fun experience.
I can appreciate that the actors did a good job bringing these crazy characters to life, and they did a good job, but sitting through a movie where most of the characters are crazy is not fun. And the end made absolutely no sense.
Eliza Dushku plays Silk, a police detective, a forgettable character in the movie. Billy Campbell plays the doctor who signed off on Suki's release, but he visits her every now-and-then.
I gave this a 4-star rating. It might prove to be too high. :/
