InNameOnly sequel to ''Literature/AmericanPsycho'', released DirectToVideo in 2002.

{{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 (played by Creator/WilliamShatner) 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.

...of course, the entire ''idea'' of a sequel to ''American Psycho'' is probably [[AudienceAlienatingPremise a deal-breaker to a lot of people]]. Particularly given that, frankly, this one's just another generic slasher movie, and it contains absolutely none of the MindScrew elements nor satire over the '80s yuppie movement the original was ripe with. Amusingly, this film is not only disowned by ''Psycho'' author Creator/BretEastonEllis, but it's the only movie that Kunis considers an OldShame, for reasons that should be very obvious.

!!Provides Examples of:

* AmbitionIsEvil
* DisproportionateRetribution: Rachel's revenge on the office worker whose only crime was pointing out that she could not apply for the TA position because she was a freshman. Not only does she kill the woman, she ''microwaves her cat''.
* DolledUpInstallment: The original script had nothing to do with ''Film/AmericanPsycho''. See WorkingTitle.
* InNameOnly: In terms of unnecessary sequels, this one is up there.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Rachel is so sure that she needs to be the TA that anything she does to get there is entirely justified in her mind.
** She's also obsessed with getting it right now, while she's a freshman, despite the position ''not being open to freshman.''
* KarmaHoudini: Rachel keeps getting away with one murder after another despite all the mounting evidence.
* MindScrew: There is one minor moment where Rachel pulls out a body and refers to it as Rachel. Did she kill the girl and assume her identity? It's unclear.
* MindScrewdriver: The original kept it ambiguous whether Patrick Bateman killed anyone. According to this movie, he did.
* MotiveDecay: Rachel kills a few people who have nothing to do with her overall scheme.
* OddlyNamedSequel2ElectricBoogaloo: The title suggests a much stronger connection with the original than there really is. You don't need to have read or seen the original to enjoy this movie.
* PoliceAreUseless: Literally. Multiple deaths on campus and yet everything still seems to carry on as usual.
* PoorCommunicationKills: Rachel's therapist calls her professor to warn him about her. The professor thinks he's talking about someone else.
* PlotHole: In the flashback at the start Rachel's narration says there was nothing connecting her to the murder scene, even though a cleaning lady witnessed her leaving the room. Or that the victim was her babysitter and babysitting her at the time.
** The intro has Patrick Bateman performing a murder that is completely unlike any of the crimes from his own story.
* PsychoStrings: Subverted. Rachel commits her murders with bouncy upbeat backing music.
* SerialKiller: Rachel, obviously.
* ShaggyDogStory: Rachel's attempt to become the TA. After killing who she saw as her biggest rival [[spoiler:who was sleeping with the professor, the man declares he's not going to take a TA this year.]]
* SociopathicHero: Rachel believes she is doing good: as she explains, killing a few classmates now will be completely justified by all the lives she saves as an FBI agent. [[spoiler:Then it all becomes meaningless; she's killing her rivals to become a certain professor's TA, and he goes on sabbatical when she kills the student he's sleeping with -- he won't ''have'' a TA.]]
* SuddenSequelDeathSyndrome: Patrick, in the intro in order to set up Rachel.
* ThereAreNoTherapists: Averted, and Rachel actually goes to see him for some reason. He even puts together that she's got a dangerously unhealthy obsession with the professor, and tries to warn him, but does so in such a way that [[PoorCommunicationKills that it's interpreted as being about a different student]].
* TwistEnding: While you'd be right to suspect that Rachel doesn't really die in a car crash, exactly where she returns (and who as) is nicely done.
