Director Hearn describes Scrawl as Big meets A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 3: Dream Warriors. Simon Goodman is a 16-year boy living in a rundown seaside town. With his best friend Joe Harper, they create a comic book called “Scrawl” as a way to escape their reality. Annie Williams (Annabelle Le Gresley) gets wrapped up in the boys’ new world, along with Joe’s sister Rosie and suddenly, with the appearance of a mysterious girl, Hannah (Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Daisy Ridley), events in the comic book start to come to life. At first it’s great, but then the monsters of the comic book begin to show themselves, and the boys realize that the comic depicts a bloody great massacre at page 21. With the help of Joe’s father, Frank (Mark Forester-Evans), family and friends, the boys are forced to face their horrific imagination made real. Are Simon and Joe able to change their newfound reality? Well, only if they can rewrite death.
