Christian Bale portrays seemingly mild-mannered Patrick Bateman, a Vice President at Wall Street firm Pierce & Pierce in the 1980s, who spends most of his office days doodling in his calendar and making reservations at the hottest restaurants in Manhattan.
At night he and his coworkers hit the nightclubs, do blow, and casually pick up women in whom they really have no interest. In private, however, Bateman's passions tend more toward the Leatherface variety. His body count piles up while trying to balance his social position with his daily skin care regimen.
Based upon the once-thought-unfilmable novel by Bret Easton Ellis, director/writer Mary Harron and co-screenwriter Guinevere Turner produce one of the greatest satire's of 80s decadence put to film, that also just happens to be an amazing serial killer flick.
ABOUT WOMEN IN HORROR MONTH
Women in Horror Month (WiHM) is an international, grassroots initiative, which encourages supporters to learn about and showcase the underrepresented work of women in the horror industries. Whether they are on the screen, behind the scenes, or contributing in their other various artistic ways, it is clear that women love, appreciate, and contribute to the horror genre.
WiHM celebrates these contributions to horror throughout the year via the official WiHM blog, Ax Wound, The Ax Wound Film Festival, and with the official WiHM event/project database in February. This database—in conjunction with the WiHM social media fan base—actively promotes do-it-yourself annual film screenings, blogs/articles, podcasts, and any other form of creative media with the ultimate goal of helping works by and featuring women reach a wider audience.
This inclusive and positive movement is open to everyone, just as we believe the horror genre should be. For more information, go to www.womeninhorrormonth.com
