Cast & Credits

Synopsis

Drama. Based on the controversial novel by Bret Easton Ellis about a soulless young man, Patrick Bateman, who appears to have indulged in every vice his inflated wallet can cope with, and who evidently has no compunction about dispatching anybody who displeases him. One of his first `victims' is a colleague who suffers for the sin of having a better business card. As the narrative continues, Patrick's methods of killing become more elaborate in parallel with the disintegration of his self-control.
