The cast for The Scribbler has me excited. What sounds like some strange take on a body horror meets DePalma flick stars two members of the Buffy The Vampire Slayer TV cast, Gina Gershon (the lips have it) and Sasha Grey (who is excellent in Open Windows!). I am not familiar with the grpahic novel, but I'm exciting to get my eyes on this picture. While it is an adaptation, it is focusing on a more unique subset of horror concepts than is the norm these last few years.
Xlrator is hit or miss. They put out amazing movies at times that truly impact me... just not all the time. This one definitely has a lot going for it. Director John Suits is the writer behind Static released last year. This was not a favorite movie of mine, but this is a very different story.
