Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) is a Wall Street yuppie, obsessed with success, status and style, with a stunning fiancée (Reese Witherspoon). He is also a psychotic killer who rapes, murders and dismembers both strangers and acquaintances without provocation or purpose. Based on the controversial novel, the film offers a sharp satire to the dark side of yuppie culture in the '80s, while setting forth a vision that is both terrifying and chilling.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: An uneven movie that nonetheless bristles with stinging wit and exerts a perverse fascination.
Fresh: It needs to be seen and appreciated, like a serpent in a glass cage.
Fresh: Harron's Psycho reps an impressive reclaiming of dubious material.
Rotten: As the antihero himself sneers at the bloody finale, 'This confession has meant nothing.' It's a form of poetic justice that American Psycho would be impaled on its own point.
Best movie ever.
The first time i've ever seen a movie almost as great as the book.
This movie is great. It has a lot of dark humor in it. However, I wouldn't recomend it if you are easily offended (it has some graphic sex scenes and of course homicide). Eventhough Patrick Bateman kills a lot of people, I still found him completely sexy. Something must be wrong with me.
The best Pyscho movie ever!
Anyone who has seen this movie and is not a devoted Super-Mega-Catholic would agree that this movie is a masterpiece of demented humor! A first person look at a creepy and yet hilarious pyschopath who narrates his sickeningly funny input on perfectly normal situations that make for horrendously funny outcomes! You must watch!
