About this deal

Just don't make the mistake of grabbing a copy of American Psycho 2, you need that in your life about as much as Paul Allen needs an ax.

All these years later the film's satire still has plenty of bite and is just as relevant even if the cultural references are decidedly dated. While it received mostly kind notices from critics upon its release, it was marketed as a thriller/horror film, even though the murder sequences are not the film's highlights, nor are they particularly suspenseful or gory.The new commentary's pretty pointless, but I'm glad they recovered the doc from the DVD, so this is definitely a strong, welcome upgrade in terms of the quality and special features, and the definitive edition to own. Everything from dialogue and sound effects to the film's great use of classic 80s tunes to the great score John Cale enjoy a serious and noteworthy uptick in quality. Based on a controversial best-seller, but produced several years after the book's buzz had faded (and then mis-marketed as a horror flick instead of the satire it really is), it is now a true cult film, and worth investigating for those with a taste for very acerbic black humor. It's like that on the Killer DVD and the blu-ray, with black pillar-boxing bars appearing for just this one zoom-in shot early in the film. tends to be most noticeable against brighter backgrounds, as in the short shot of the sky and office towers at around 49:47.

major compression problems such as macroblocking, I did notice some slight edginess on sharply contrasted-objects, most noticeably some blinds in Bateman's apartment, which shimmy a bit. What Harron did was take the twisted tale of psycho depravity, structured within the mold of a satire on coke-fuelled 80s Wall Street, and transform the uncomfortably nasty protagonist into a character more in the vein of a young Hannibal Lecter, whose murderous exploits were more informed by a peculiar response to social slights and inappropriate etiquette.Instead, Lionsgate produced a fresh batch of supplements for their 2005 "Killer Collector's Edition," and about 75 percent of them are ported over to this Blu-ray version. And now there's a 2018 4k Ultra HD disc and blu-ray combo-pack that just about renders them all obsolete. Like I mentioned up above in the video section, the below audio score and critical comments of such are based solely upon my viewing of Lionsgate’s 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray presentation of American Psycho. Blu-ray B Germany- Koch Media - No cuts – Includes the Unrated version (102:01) and the R-rated version (101:43).

The film is adapted from a book of the same name by Bret Easton Ellis, and I would recommend that people watch the movie before the reading the book, due to the graphic nature of the written story.The press release of this title said it best so I am going to lift from that to conclude here as I seemingly have no more original thoughts on the matter. And American Psycho's success with audiences is all the more impressive given that it's an indie film. True, he didn't don the cape and cowl for a few years after this film's premiere, but one can't help look at his Patrick Bateman and see a little bit of his future Bruce Wayne sitting there. For the film's Blu-ray debut, Lionsgate is pulling out the unrated version only, utilizing the same master as the 2005 special edition release. Updated daily and in real-time, we track all high-def disc news and release dates, and review the latest disc titles.

next thing I noticed about this 4K UHD version is the clear uptick in detail levels from the 1080p Blu-ray.

I don't believe there are any new special features for this release,apart from the menu screen, and you can tell that they were put together around the year 2000 but i found them interesting anyway.
