American Psycho


Set in the turbulent 1980s, our ''hero'' is an image-conscious yuppie. When a rival upstages him, he turns to murder. Getting away with that, he takes up murder as a pastime, knocking off all sorts of people, until the pressure of his highly competitive life drive him to one final bloody outburst...

Ian Douglas: Disturbing. Found out afterwards that there is a major difference between the film and the book, if you have read the book the film will make much more sense and be more credible.

Dion Scher (26): I thought this movie was a great idea, but the ending was very dissapointing. Probably a very enjoyable film for those who loved Fight Club.
