American Psycho 2 is a black comedy-horror movie, which was released in 2002, directed by Morgan J. Freeman. The movie stars Mila Kunis, who plays the lead role of Rachael Newman, a criminology student with a dark past, who will do anything to become her professor's assistant. The movie follows Rachael, who is obsessed with becoming a teaching assistant to her criminology professor, Robert Stark, at a prestigious university. Rachael's dark past, where she killed the original protagonist of American Psycho, Patrick Bateman, fuels her drive to become a teaching assistant.

In American Psycho 2, William Shatner plays the role of Robert Stark, Rachael Newman's professor. Stark is a specialist in abnormal psychology and a best-selling author of several books on the topic. He is an eccentric professor who is captivated by Rachael's lust for knowledge and her abnormal fascination with serial killers.

The movie takes place during the academic year in the university, where Rachael is trying to win the coveted position of Teaching Assistant to Professor Stark. Behind her charming and earnest demeanor, Rachael is a deceitful person who will stop at nothing to become the Assistant. Her plan includes murdering the competition, sabotaging her rivals and framing her roommate for the murders.

Geraint Wyn Davies co-stars as detective Eric Daniels, who is assigned to investigate the murder spree that sweeps through the campus. Although Rachael is under the policeman's radar, she is calm, collected, and appears innocent when Daniels interviews her.

Throughout the movie, Robin Dunne plays the character of Brian, Rachael's love interest. Brian is a simple-minded guy who is interested in Rachael and gets caught up in her mad obsession, without knowing the truth about her motives.

As Rachael progresses in her killing spree, the pressure builds up, and she starts to realize that the murders are becoming more and more challenging to keep hidden. Rachael deals with her stress and fear by unleashing more violence, taking her reasoning further than any other killer she has ever read about.

In American Psycho 2, Morgan J. Freeman creates a dark, gritty film that captures the essence of Bret Easton Ellis's American Psycho only to twist it into a black-humored horror movie. The movie's pace is fast and is driven by the character of Rachael, who is clever, calculating, and cool, but who also has an obsessive personality and an unquenchable thirst for knowledge.

The film's main strength is the performance of Mila Kunis, who holds her own in the role of a young woman who is not only obsessed with her professor, but determined to kill anyone who stands in her way. Her character is complex and nuanced, and the audience is unsure whether to cheer for her or fear her.

The cast of American Psycho 2 is excellent, with William Shatner and Geraint Wyn Davies in particularly standout performances. Robin Dunne is also strong as the love interest, allowing Kunis to show the increasingly deranged side of her character.

In conclusion, American Psycho 2 may not reach the heights of its predecessor, but it is a well-crafted horror-comedy film. The movie has a compelling storyline and characters, gory murder scenes and tongue-in-cheek humor that propels the movie from beginning to end. The movie has a bit of everything, from suspenseful murder scenes and twisted humor to Kunis's award-worthy performance. Overall, the movie is a must-watch for horror and comedy fans alike.

American Psycho 2 is a 2002 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 28 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.8.
