Time for a celebration!  We’ve reached 100 Patrick Bateman Problems, and obviously, that means it’s time for a giveaway… actually, fourgiveaways.  Okay, so two of them are just almost-unused DVDs that I’ve had lying around my house forever, but the American Psycho ones are items I actually bought.

In this post, I’m giving away a new copy of American Psycho (the “killer collector’s edition” - aka the uncut version, unrated), on standard DVD.

This book has very graphic content in it.  The content in the book (graphic rape, torture, mutilation, murder) is far more intense than the content shown in the film.  I would not recommend it to anyone under 16 (this is coming from a teenager who actively seeks out the most disturbing films and books she can find).  Please make sure you are comfortable reading this kind of content before you enter!

In this post, I’m giving away a copy of The Exorcism of Emily Rose (“special edition,” theatrical version, PG-13, standard DVD.)  Here is a list of all the differences between the theatrical and unrated versions (spoilers).

The case and DVD are in perfect condition - I’ve only played the DVD once, and opened the case less than four times since I bought it.  (I ended up with two copies of the film at my house, which is why I’m giving one away.)

For those who haven’t seen the movie, here’s my sales pitch: while the name may imply that it’s a horror film, The Exorcism of Emily Rose is far more of a legal drama, so don’t expect anything too scary.  All the actors are fantastic, and if you let yourself get into the story, it can be a very thought-provoking film.  It’s based off the controversial story of Anneliese Michel, although as always, there’s some liberty taken with the story and circumstances.  The movie focuses less on Emily/Anneliese’s disturbing experiences (many of the events in the linked article are not included at all) and more on the philosophical and spiritual significance of the event.  That’s not to say it’s a religious movie.  I will say that this is the only film set in the ‘real world’ that has ever made me favor the religious group rather than the nonreligious group - that’s a rather difficult thing to achieve when it comes to my religious views.  I highly recommend it, and I think the main reason for the mediocre ratings on imdb.com and other sources is because most viewers expect a scary movie.  Again, though it does have some of the elements of a horror film, it is definitely a drama - and a good one!

itsfuckingdistractingohgood opened their dumb fucking mouth:

I actually got to listen to the who show (musical) and I liked it. It's difficult to like anything when you're already a fan of the original format (the book) but I thought it was good adaptation. I thought musical format would be awful and that a play would be better but after I heard the whole show I realized it the opposite. A play version would be awkward. You are right though, that the Smith's interpretation is a little too warm and not enough coldness.

Ooh, cool!

Yeah, I guesss if you’re going to put American Psycho on a stage, you might as well go all the way and make it a musical.  Also there was that script that Bret Easton Ellis wrote before the APS movie was made that ended in a musical number… clearly the idea has been in his head for a long time.  I think it’s so ridiculous and weird that it works - and I guess if you want to get all interpretive about it, the idea in the book is that Patrick and his friends only exist as facades, like they’re acting for an audience of each other.  The whole world is a stage, right?

The Musical

(I’m excited to finally hear all the songs in one place!) We’ve known for a while now that the APS musical would be coming to Broadway, but over the past few days there have been a few new articles written about it.

In case you missed it, the musical debuted in London, with Matt Smith (yeah, that bow-tie dude from Doctor Who) in the role of Patrick Bateman.  The show will be playing at Second Stage Theater in New York starting February 2015 (assuming everything goes as planned).  There will be more blood, a few new songs, and an all-American cast.  No word on any specific names yet.  The only possible hint is from a tweet from BEE last year:

A TV show?

They did it to Psycho, they did it to the Hannibal movies, and now there’s a chance they might be doing it to American Psycho.  Mid/late 2013, FX studios was considering an American Psycho sequel in movie form (I guess the utter failure of the 2002 film with Mila Kunis wasn’t enough to steer them away).  After a while, that discussion faded away, and the idea of a TV series was brought up -  the synopsis being:

“In the new drama series, iconic serial killer Patrick Bateman, now in his mid-50’s but as outrageous and lethal as ever, takes on a protégé in a sadistic social experiment who will become every bit his equal — a next generation American Psycho.”

The most recent article about this was written this year, however it cited no sources whatsoever, and gave no new information, so it’s entirely possible that it was just recycled by a website to get some views.  It’s also very possible that, like the possibility of a film sequel, the TV idea has floated away on the breeze.

I’ve given my opinion below, but I’d love to hear what you think about either of these events!
