American Psycho(Review)[Twisted Throwback Thursday]
merican Psycho is hands down one of my favorite horror films. It is one of those movies I can never get tired of watching, and there's always something new I see each time I watch it.
The movie is about everyman Patrick Bateman. To everyone else, he seems like your normal unassuming human being, however underneath, there lies a psychopathic killer. It is really interesting to see him switch from normal to his psycho side, and he does it so smoothly that his victims don't even notice until it's too late.
For example, and yeah I may be spoiling a bit, but take a look at this scene below when he invites his rival to his apartment. The rival played by Jared Leto is so drunk he thinks it's all part of the act. And Christian Bale is just having what seems just a normal conversation except there are clues he is up to something for more nefarious. The scene is just so great and I still enjoy it every time. Oh and we can't forget another scene that features the classic line "Don't just stare at it, eat it!!"
As you can tell, I absolutely love this movie, and really, it is interesting how you see it tell the story of the pressures of society to conform to normality, and how a person can just blend in so well that even when the person confesses to sick and deviant acts, no one believes them. Definitely something worth watching and rewatching, and this is a movie I have in my watch queue every Halloween. There was a subpar sequel made, but it was rather forgettable in my eyes.
Till next time, stay safe and stay scared! -Tha Thrilla-
