''American Psycho 2: All American Girl'' is the InNameOnly sequel to the 2000 [[Literature/AmericanPsycho original]]. {{Narrator}} Rachel Newman (Creator/MilaKunis) is studying criminal psychology at college, her ambition being to join the FBI at Quantico to hunt serial killers. Her classmates have the same ambition. And since only the top student gets an offer to be the TA of a certain professor that she's sure will guarantee such a career later on, she starts killing those ahead of her and anyone else who gets in the way. Good performances and plenty of BlackHumor make it quite similar in style to both the book and first movie.

The InNameOnly movie sequel ''AmericanPsycho 2: All American Girl'' has only a tenuous connection with the original. {{Narrator}} Rachel Newman (MilaKunis) is studying criminal psychology at college, her ambition being to join the FBI at Quantico to hunt serial killers. Her classmates have the same ambition.

...of course, the entire ''idea'' of a sequel to ''American Psycho'' is probably a deal-breaker to a lot of people. Particularly given that, frankly, this one's just another slasher movie, and it contains absolutely none of the MindScrew elements nor satire over the 80's yuppie movement the original was ripe with.

with. Amusingly, this film is not only disowned by ''Psycho'' author Creator/BretEastonEllis, but it's the only movie Creator/MilaKunis considers an OldShame, for reasons that should be very obvious.
