This Dark, Very NSFW Joker & Harley Quinn-Inspired Fan Film Will Fill You With Dread

Get ready to be seriously disturbed by a new “Joker” inspired fan film. Titled “The Laughing Man,” the 18-minute film borrows elements from Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo‘s Joker in their “Death of the Family” story arc from DC Comics’ “Batman.”

Created by the Hallivis Brothers, the extremely NSFW fan-film focuses mainly on three characters: the Joker (called the “Laughing Man” in the short for various legal reasons), Harley Quinn (only “Quinn” in the short) and Dr. Hawtin, a “Wormwood” asylum psychotherapist.

The Laughing Man turns up, strait-jacketed, in a Wormwood padded cell. No one knows who he really is or how he got there. Dr. Hawtin and his assistant, Dr. Quinn, question the bleached skin, yellowed haired individual, but end up on the receiving end of the questioning. It’s the Laughing Man, who’s turned the tables on Dr. Hawtin, putting the doctor on the hot seat about patients he’s treated in the past.

Things only go downhill from there for the good doctor, as he’s drugged by his assistant and wakes up gagged and strapped to a chair. The Laughing Man and his now assistant, Quinn (dressed very Harley Quinn-esque), torture the doctor, while live-streaming the whole event. In typical Joker fashion, it’s up to the audience to determine whether the doctor lives or dies. And while the votes are being tabulated? The Laughing Man and Quinn do their best “Pulp Fiction” dancing for the drugged up doctor.

While the short is a little long, and more than a little brutal, it’s undeniably well made. The use of claymation/stop motion animation to tell the first patient’s story, as a child, is a particularly interesting touch, and the gruesome (and graphic) interpretation of the Joker “losing” his face, is something to behold. That is, if you can stomach all the squishy parts.
