The Dark Face of Fear - Women in Terror

In this post we're looking at the face of fear in the countenances of young women, whom are shown in various stage of terror from an unknown situation and/or protagonist.

Even though we like to shock and disturb here at Bizarre and Weird, we also like to occasionally show something that relates to the human psyche ... in this case the inner fears that almost everyone alive on this planet, or has lived on the earth, has faced at some point in their lives.

Here are the powerful and compelling photos of dark, unknown fear. In think they're amazing for what they are meant to portray. I also believe the facial expressions and consequences of the fear are done intentionally to allow us to see how fear can have such a strong effect upon our countenances.

This first photo seems to reveal a young lady caught in a spider web of some sort. Either she had the red and blue eyes already, or the trauma of what she's facing has caused the change to be made. The eyes and how they look, and tape covering her mouth, reveal she is in the midst of the state of terror. It's done very well.

The terror and apparent inevitability shown in the eyes of this young woman is a powerful statement to the inner human condition, which seems to have a unique inner eye itself, which when included with what the outer senses see and hear, can produce unbearable fear and horror at times.

Having her looking out the sides of her eyes has an even more impactful feeling of ominous terror at what she sees and knows.

Lastly we have a young lady who appears to have collapsed under the horror of her situation, as she bleeds from the eyes at the scene playing out in front of her. Her silent scream shouts out at us that whatever she is facing is about to happen. It's the fear many of us feel when we have a certainty about what's going down very soon for us.
