Discover more about the "American Psycho" screenplay.

There's more to a script than just words.

Like the writers, for example! The "American Psycho" screenplay is written by Mary Harron and Guinevere Turner. And it's based on the Bret Easton Ellis novel of the same name.

For Your Consideration, we offer Ms. Harron's and Ms. Turner's fourth draft script (dated November, 1998).

What's "American Psycho" about?

So glad you asked! Have a look at the movie's logline, and a quote from the screenplay.

Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) is a Wall Street yuppie, obsessed with success, status, and style, with a stunning fiancée (Reese Witherspoon).

He is also a psychotic killer who rapes, murders, and dismembers both strangers and acquaintances without provocation or purpose. Based on the controversial novel, the film offers a sharp satire to the dark side of yuppie culture in the ʼ80s, while setting forth a vision that is both terrifying and chilling.

I like to dissect girls. Did you know I'm utterly insane?

Bateman,
PG. 34

Where would movies be today without writers?

"American Psycho", the novel, is written by Bret Easton Ellis. The screenplay is written by Mary Harron and Guinevere Turner. And, in spite of that (or maybe because of that), "American Psycho" was met with protest and disgust from several women's groups upon it's initial release.

That being said, proceed with caution. However, it is an excellent example of a mind-bending horror-thriller screenplay. And that's why I offer it here.
