American Psycho II: All American Girl (2002, Mila Kunis, William Shatner)



The sequel to American Psycho opens a few years down the line. Rachael Newman (Mila Kunis) was the charge of a babysitter Bateman murdered and, as the film progresses, her part in his eventual fate becomes clear. Now a smart woman, she’s at college, hoping to become an assistant to legendary criminal psychologist and serial-killer profiler Prof Robert Starkman (William Shatner). Unfortunately, other students stand in her way and the only way to progress is to learn from Bateman…

Although Bateman does appear, it is as a shadowy figure (and definitely not Christian Bale), and the film belongs to Kunis as the increasingly chilling killer and Shatner, who allows his bourbon-swilling, student-bedding character full rein. Morgan J Freeman, who also directed the Sundance-winning Hurricane Streets and the charming comedy Desert Blue , is smart enough to combine suitably gruesome scenes with a smattering of black humour, and, while not topping the original, this is more satisfying than most sequels.
