15 Sick Sociopaths You Thought Were Hot Come on, admit it, we love the crazies. And since the 1970’s movies have introduced us to a slew of twisted, depraved killers and sociopaths that shock us but also deeply intrigue us. Sociopathy (sometimes also known as a psychopathy) is defined as a type of personality disorder. People with this disorder often display extreme antisocial attitudes (which many times result in criminal acts) and a lack of conscience. They are unable to feel guilt or have empathy for others. Real sociopathy is obviously no laughing matter as it is a serious mental health problem. And not all sociopaths are killers or visa versa.

Christian Bale was cast in the role of Patrick Bateman in the 2000 black comedy/horror flick American Psycho (based on the book of the same name written by Bret Easton Ellis) and the casting couldn’t have been better. Bale got under the skin of the character perfectly, helping to make the movie the cult classic it is
