The Batman finds out that Arkham Asylum, the asylum he usually drops
his enemies at, is actually the headquarters of a drugrunning
organisation, masterminded by Amadeus Arkham himself. Batman has of course
no problems to fly over there and find the entrance to the place, but once
inside, he has to realize he now has his entire rogue gallery opposing him
- and before you know it, he is knocked out by the Scarecrow's feargas and
almost driven to insanity - luckily he has brought the antidote with him -
and almost stabbed by teh Joker.
Soon, the Batman finds himself
locked into a cell of the inhuman asylum himself though, and when he
breaks the door to the cell down with awelding torch, he accidently sets
the whole place on fire, releasing all kinds of baddies onto Gotham City.
And as if this was not enough - the baddies throw him out of a window ...
to his death, one wonders?
Maybe, sine this is a work in progress, we'll
have to wait until whenever (if ever) director Andre Perkowski finishes
the next chapter.
Just like Silent
Shadow of the Bat-Man this film contains no originally shot scenes
but is entirely made up from vintage footage, mainly silents said to have
influenced the creation of Batman - plus scenes from the
1949 serial Batman and Robin (without any Robin in sight,
fortunately), since there was no (more) adequate silent footage of a Batman-like
creature on hand (Perkowski had used up all footage of 1926's The Bat
in Silent Shadow of the
Bat-Man and had no intention to repeat himself).
films used in this movie include: The Penalty (1920), The
Blackbird (1926), Nosferatu (1920), The Cabinet of Doctor
Caligari (1920), The Golem (1920), Haxan (1922), Fantômas
- À l'ombre de la guillotine (1913), Juve contre Fantômas
(1913), Fantômas - Le Faux Magistrat (1914), Waxworks (1924),
Destiny (1922), Dr. Mabuse, der Spieler (1922), The
Passion of Joan of Arc (1928), Alice in Wonderland (1903), The
Man Who Laughs (1928), L'Inferno (1911), Schatten - Eine Nächtliche
Halluzination (1923), Sunset (1927), Pandora's Box
(1929), Phantom of the Opera (1925), Dr. Jekyll and Mister Hyde
(1920), several Hans Richter-films from the 1920's and of course 1920's
What's really remarkable about Arkham after
Midnight though is neither the footage itself though nor Perkowski's
ability to track it down, but his talent to turn the vastly incoherent
mess of clips from all over the place into a coherent, atmospheric feature
with an actual narrative only via clever editing and soundtrack, which
makes this film an extremely enjoyable watch.
the way, this film has not been released commercially, but you can see it
