Director: Mary Harron
Starring: Christian Bale, Justin Theroux, Josh Lucas

Based on the book of the same name by Bret Easton Ellis, American Psycho ranks amongst the most distinctive horror movies of all time. It follows Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale), a wealthy New York banker, who tries to suppress his psychopathic, murderous urges around his friends and coworkers as he begins to descend deeper into dark fantasies. Bale gives one of his best performances as Bateman, but what makes American Psycho so fascinating and unsettling is its strange mix of horror and comedy. Bateman’s words and actions are completely terrifying, yet they’re juxtaposed with scenes where he praises the music of Huey Lewis and the News (which of course happens right before he murders someone with an ax). American Psycho is an unsettling, brilliant horror classic.
