American Psycho is a 2000 horror film directed and written by Mary Harron and based on Bret Easton Ellis's 1991 novel with the same name. The movie stars Christian Bale as Patrick Bateman, a New York City banker who leads a double life as a serial killer. The film was released theatrically on April 14, 2000. A direct-to-video sequel, American Psycho 2, was released in 2002, although it has little relation to the original.
The following weapons were used in the film American Psycho:
Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) takes out a Glock 19 from under his coat to execute the kitten at the ATM, but is stopped by a random woman (Joyce R. Korbin). An enraged Patrick kills her, attracting attention of the police. During the chase, he shoots the police, exploding their car. After the massacre of the police, Bateman enters the office building and kills the security guard and the janitor.
Note: In the novel, Bateman uses a ".357 Magnum" kept in a holster, which he later attaches a suppressor to. Suppressors generally don't work on revolvers, as Bateman soon finds out, when he kills a homeless man with it and, not realizing the ineffectiveness of a suppressed revolver, the gunshot nearly deafens him.
