Living the American Dream means that you can be anyone you want to be, even if that someone happens to be a Wall Street serial killer fascinated by Huey Lewis and the News, or a medical student who puts her skin-slicing skills to gain success with body modifications... including some painful alterations on the professor who betrayed her. On a new episode of Corpse Club, we take a look at the all-American horrors of American Psycho and American Mary

In episode 40 of Daily Dead's podcast, co-hosts Heather Wixson, Scott Drebit, and Derek Anderson continue the Women in Horror Month celebration with a special "all-American" episode on Mary Harron's American Psycho and Jen and Sylvia Soska's American Mary. After comparing their business cards, the Corpse Club co-hosts discuss the bold cinematic styles of the female Canadian filmmakers, as well as the subtle and intense touches that shaped their respective American horror movies into unforgettable experiences. So, stop trying to get a reservation at Dorsia, take a break from suturing chickens from the fridge, and enjoy a new episode of Corpse Club... just be sure to watch your back if "Hip to Be Square" starts playing.
