16 Unsettling Stills From American Psycho (2000)

Directed and co-written by Mary Harron, American Psycho is a dark comedy-horror starring Christian Bale. The role of Patrick Bateman, psychopath, is widely considered to be his breakout role. He is truly terrifying as a character who appears to be a successful, well-disciplined, investment banker living in New York.

However, when night falls, he turns into a violent serial killer. His bloodlust is fuelled partly by his hatred for the shallow and vain people he surrounds himself with, including his fiancée Evelyn (Reese Witherspoon). In between his intense morning ritual – which opens the film – his work commitments, and regular fine dining, Bateman meets up with women and plans brutal ways to slaughter them.

Here are sixteen unsettling stills from American Psycho.
