Plot summary

What is American Psycho movie plot?

Here is a short review of "American Psycho" movie plot summary.

In 1987, wealthy New York investment banker Patrick Bateman's life revolves around dining at trendy restaurants while keeping up appearances for his fiancée Evelyn and his circle of wealthy and shallow associates, most of whom he hates. Bateman describes the material accoutrements of his lifestyle, including his morning exercise, beautification routine, designer wardrobe and expensive furniture. He also discusses his music collection by mimicking phrases he's seen in music reviews.
Bateman and his associates flaunt their business cards in a display of vanity. Enraged by the superiority of his co-worker Paul Allen's card, Bateman murders a homeless man and his dog. At a Christmas party, Bateman makes plans to have dinner with Allen, who mistakes Bateman for another coworker. Bateman gets Allen drunk and lures him back to his apartment. While playing "Hip to Be Square", Bateman delivers a monologue to Allen about the artistic merits of the song, then murders Allen with a mirror-polished axe. After disposing of the body, Bateman stages the apartment to make it appear Allen has gone to London. Bateman is later interviewed about Allen's disappearance by private detective Donald Kimball (Willem Dafoe).
Bateman takes two prostitutes, who he names Christie (Cara Seymour) and Sabrina (Krista Sutton), to his apartment and expounds on his opinions of the band Genesis. After they have sex, Bateman brings out instruments he uses for bodily harm. They later leave his apartment evidently bloodied and mistreated.
Bateman's colleague Luis Carruthers (Matt Ross) reveals a new business card. Bateman tries to kill Luis in the restroom of an expensive restaurant, but Luis mistakes the attempt for a sexual advance and declares his love for Bateman, who flees in disgust. After murdering a model, Bateman invites his secretary Jean (Chloë Sevigny) to dinner, suggesting she meet him at his apartment for drinks. When Jean arrives, unbeknownst to her, Bateman holds a nail gun to the back of her head while they chat. When he receives a message from Evelyn on his answering machine, he asks Jean to leave.
