American Psycho Introduction Deconstruction (rhyming) :D
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.
