The Scab is based on a poem by the same name written by award winning horror writer Michael Arnzen. It is a excerpt from the 11 short films that comprise Exquisite Corpse
The following are from 2 reviews of the Exquisite Corpse project:
"The Scab" is by far my favorite poem and film from the grouping. The imagery is imaginative and fits the poem perfectly. Near flawless editing and well suited graphics are combined to create a truly unique and interesting piece of cinema.
"The Scab" is effective in its stunningly succinct and economic storytelling--replete with conflict, rising action, climax, and resolution in under a minute--a pithy personal exploration of a femaleās introversion and ostracizing by society by way of 1950s-Era commercial imagery and tone as directed by the love child of Tim Burton and The Brothers Quay.
