Lionsgate seems as if they are trying to gain even more market share in the horror genre.
In a story from Fangoria, they report that American Psycho will be coming to Blu-ray DVD on February 6.
Bret Easton Ellis' dark and violent satire of America in the 1980s is brought to the screen in this unsettling drama with black comic overtones. Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale), the son of a wealthy Wall Street financier, is pursuing his own lucrative career with his father's firm. Bateman is the prototypical yuppie, obsessed with success, fashion, and style. He is also a serial killer who murders, rapes, and mutilates both strangers and acquaintances without provocation or reason. Donald Kimble (Willem Dafoe), a police detective, questions Bateman about the disappearance of Paul Allen (Jared Leto), whom Patrick murdered several days earlier.
As Kimble stays on Bateman's trail, Bateman's mask of studied, distant cool begins to fall apart. American Psycho also features Reese Witherspoon as Bateman's girlfriend, as well as Samantha Mathis, Chloe Sevigny, and Guinevere Turner; the latter also co-authored the screenplay. Controversy followed the production from the start, when speculation that Leonardo Di Caprio would play Bateman sparked concerns that he would lure preteens to an R-rated movie. DiCaprio soon bowed out of the project, and original leading man Bale was reinstated. Later, a group of Toronto residents attempted to block filming in that city after Canadian serial killer Paul Bernardo claimed that Ellis' novel inspired his murder spree.
Lionsgate will also be releasing The Amazing Screw-On Head that same day. This release even comes with a comic book!
An artifact that will allow anyone who possesses it to threaten all life on Earth has been stolen by the most dangerous criminal known to man, and now it's up to President Abraham Lincoln's top spy - a disembodied head known only as The Screw-On Head - to retrieve it in Hellboy creator Mike Mignola's hilarious send-up of Lovecraftian horror and steampunk insanity. The dreaded Emperor Zombie (David Hyde Pierce) is threatening to unleash the greatest horror that mankind has ever known, and the only one who can stop him is Screw-On Head (Paul Giamatti). Now, with time running out for all of humanity, Screw-On Head enlists the aid of loyal manservant Mr. Groin and talking canine Mr. Dog in retrieving the priceless artifact and saving the world from a grim and violent fate. As the ultimate confrontation draws near, Screw-On Head searches high and low for a body powerful enough to fight and overcome the horrible powers that have been unleashed by Emperor Zombie.
