CO - American Psycho Intro Deconstruction


The opening credits are set in simple and black text, on a clean white background

There is stylised blood dripping on-screen, to denote the violence that impacts the film later

There is a somewhat eerie and suspenseful music, whenever blood drips down from the top of the screen, a staccato of music pronounced

The writing of the credits fates subtly in and out

Classical music starts playing louder and less subtly. This adds a more elegant theme to the opening credits

The blood becomes even more apparent, striking and bold, and begins splattering on the base of the screen as the title of the film begins to fade in

The blood fades away from the screen and a plate of meat appears, and is promptly chopped by a knife. This hints at the idea of murder and killing which is the main theme of American Psycho

There is food being served, and it becomes obvious that the setting is that of a restaurant

Waiters are presented, and talk to unidentifiable people about what the restaurant has to offer

The camera cuts to three characters talking, one of which is Patrick Bateman, the main antagonist and main character of the film

We intend to use the blood dripping effect in the intro to our film as part of a flashback, only in b&w.
