American Pyscho 2: All American Girl Review
Written by: NickFerrioHorrorFan
Maybe contain spoilers, for people who have not seen the movie. This movie revolves around a young girl named Rachel, after surviving Patrick Bateman (from AP1) and witnessing the killer in action, she decides that when she grows up she will devote her life to stopping serial killers. Flash forward about 8 years, Rachel is now in college studying Behavioural and Social Sciences, her professor being a well respected and brilliant ex FBI agent. Her goal is to become the professor's assistant, knowing that it will be her ticket into the FBI so she can finally live her dream. However, Rachel has some major competition for the position. The brain, the rich boy, and one of her class mates who is having an affair with the professor. However Rachel will not let anyone interfere with her destiny....even if it means having to kill off the competition.
The thing I enjoyed about this movie is the dark humor. I'm a huge fan of dark humor in horror films. This happens to be a movie crammed with dark humor, and quirky puns. Towards the beginning of the movie there are plenty of red herrings that keep you guessing. There are also so many twists and turns, and the flashbacks that link the story together in the end, and the end itself are witty and satisfying, and somewhat shocking.
Rachel is so complex. She is a character that you can't help but care for, and in her mind nothing she is doing is wrong. She is convinced that everything morbid she has done will be be for the greater good, that her victims are the few for the many. She is sassy, smart and sexy. Hey I'm gay and I even would consider a night with Mila Kunis, who played the part very well. All and all pretty good Straight to DVD movie.
I have yet to see the original, so I can't really compare this to anything. The movie that rings in my head while I type this review is Devil In The Flesh starring horror favorite Rose McGowan (Grind House, Phantoms, Scream). If you enjoyed this movie I would also recommend Devil In The Flesh.
Thanks for reading everyone. and please ignore the rating for SF & CGI, as there were none, standard slasher flick.
