American Psycho director & writer reunite for Charles Manson pic, The Family

Although AMERICAN PSYCHO was a success when it first premiered, the film has soared to even greater heights over the past sixteen years as it quickly became a cult favourite. Director Mary Harron and screenwriter Guinevere Turner crafted a remarkable adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' novel of the same name and it's one of those rare films which, at least in my experience,...

Cool Videos: Irish Psycho reenacts the business card scene with craft beer

I never would have thought a scene discussing business cards would be the highlight of any movie, let alone one called AMERICAN PSYCHO, but that's the world we live in.

When Mary Harron 's AMERICAN PSYCHO premiered, it made Christian Bale a name to be remembered and divided audiences and critics with a violent and satirical look at America in the 1980s. It spawned one of the most atrocious sequels of all time, the cleverly titled AMERICAN PSYCHO 2, starring Mila...

Cool Videos: Huey Lewis reenacts the infamous Huey Lewis scene from American Psycho

I love AMERICAN PSYCHO. Christian Bale 's insane performance cemented him as one of my favorite actors and the scene where he explains Huey Lewis and the News to a drunk Jared Leto is cheesy perfection. I love the over the top way Bale portrays Patrick Bateman in this sequence. I recommend this movie to everyone I can and love having discussions about whether the events of the...
