    Can no one spell SPOILER?

    You might consider editing this a bit.

    In case someone who hasn't read the book or seen the movie attempts to explain what it's all about?

    ;)

    No, in case someone who hasn't read the book or seen the movie then has the book/movie ruined for him.

    I hope a Moderator will edit the thread title to indicate it contains a spoiler - or that shauny1 will be decent enough to do it himself.

    American Psycho is a decent enough film, only thing that lets it down is a lack of gore really so's to be more faithful to the book.
    In any case, DON'T bother with II as it's pants ala American Werewolf in Paris - US teen dire nastiness.

    Couldn't agree more. How awful with this movie? It was so pants that even the pants were wearing pants :rolleyes: :D One VHS title I shall NOT be replacing with the DVD. Although there is a bit of nudity from the French girl :devil: :D

    I think suspense and good direction can shock more than gore. I have seen plenty of films that have made me sick with hardly any gore if non at all but how many gore films do you just laugh at.
    Saying that I have not seen American Psycho so you could very well be right.

    I liked American Psycho as a movie. Not brilliant, but as Encaser says, it's okay.

    Garrett - The movie should have been very gory in this case because the book is much about that. It's not a story that has a clever plot, or relies on suspense, character development, and plot twists. The book was there to make several socio-political statements but because the book is set in the 80s, the film came too late to make the same statements. So many expect a different type of movie and it doesn't work on any other level, hence why it's a bit of a let down for many.
