The Joker, a character from one of the early Batman movies, is certainly charismatic but a vicious, calculating, psychopathic killer and criminally insane to boot. Every glance at his posture and facial expression imbues in the viewer a sense of impending doom, a feeling that a horrifying and uncontrollable scenario is about to unfold.
Here, he’s about to commit the most terrible crime. You don’t know what it is but you can sense it, like a cold shiver down your spine. His whole being is evil, and it’s based deep, deep within his persona.
We all have an element of evil, a little dark side that we keep under control, because without that control, the “Jokers” of this world would wreak havoc and bring about the collapse of the world as we know it.
Our only hope is the Dark Knight, but he is nowhere to be found.
So, have you ever found yourself in a terrifying situation and there's no one around to come to your rescue?.... Got the shivers yet?
