Plot Summary

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. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 24, 2006

Fresh: It needs to be seen and appreciated, like a serpent in a glass cage. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Mar 28, 2011

Fresh: Harron's Psycho reps an impressive reclaiming of dubious material. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Mar 28, 2011

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. – J. Hoberman, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

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!
