Jasmin St. Claire,
Life isn't fair. The Joker escapes from Arkham Asylum. Bruce Wayne puts on his Batman suit, mask, and cape, and goes in pursuit. He's soon found the Joker and begins a fight to subdue the red-eyed, sneering villain. Then, suddenly, things take a surprising turn: the Joker becomes the least of Batman's worries. New enemies appear: it's as if he's found himself in another set of comic books. Can he hold his own? Written by

Bizarre and cool---it's amazing what you can make for only $30,000
This is apparently a short piece of fan fiction--not a piece authorized or made by DC Comics. Despite this and a budget of $30,000 (a huge amount for a fan film--a tiny drop in the hat for a professional-looking film), it is very professional in style and is quite watchable to those who are not fans of the caped crusader (I sure am not a big fan, but I liked it).
The film begins with Batman having a showdown with The Joker--who is very, very well portrayed by Andrew Koenig. He is nothing like the Jack Nicholson version--more like a demonic comic book version. However, one this crook is dispatched, some MAJOR surprises are in store for Batman--ones that I don't want to divulge as it would spoil the suspense.
The bottom line is this is a terrific film--well worth a peek and only taking about six minutes out of your otherwise hectic lives.
