American Psycho is a classic of its genre, and though it wasn't an enormous hit on release, it has grown into a cult film that almost everyone loves, if they've seen it. Apparently though, it was successful enough for Lionsgate to greenlight a $10 Million direct-to-DVD sequel in 2003 starring Mila Kunis and William Shatner. No, seriously. William Shatner is in this, and the terrifying thing is that he's playing it straight! Directed by Morgan Freeman (I wish it was the one we're all thinking of, but it's not) Kunis plays a college student named Rachael who meets Patrick Bateman when he dates her babysitter and then kills her. This gives Rachael a taste for murder, which she uses to her advantage when she wants to become Shatner's assistant in her Criminology course. You know, we're probably making this sound better than it is. It's not even worth watching for the comedy value, because it takes itself far too seriously. Shatner, however, is clearly aware of the film he's making and hams it up at literally every opportunity (would we expect anything else?). Apparently, the film was originally called The Girl Who Wouldn't Die, but was adapted into American Psycho 2 after Lionsgate noticed how well the original was doing on Home Video. And the truth is, it probably wouldn't be that bad if it didn't have that title raising expectations beyond its abilities. If you watch it drunk, maybe you'll enjoy it. Just don't watch it expecting anything on par with the original.
