- Looking for a way to create the character of Patrick Bateman, 克里斯蒂安·贝尔 stumbled onto a 汤姆·克鲁斯 appearance on the 大卫·莱特曼晚间秀 (1993). According to co-writer and director Mary Harron, Bale saw in Cruise "this very intense friendliness with nothing behind the eyes," and Bale subsequently based the character of Bateman on that. Interestingly, Tom Cruise is actually featured in the novel. He lives in the same apartment complex as Bateman, who meets him in an elevator and gets the name of 鸡尾酒 (1988) wrong, calling it "Bartender."
- The single biggest cost on the film was purchasing the rights to the various songs used throughout.
- During the shooting of the film, 克里斯蒂安·贝尔 spoke in an American accent off-set at all times. At the wrap party, when he began to speak in his native Welsh accent, many of the crew thought he was speaking that way as an accent for another film. They had thought he was American throughout the entire shoot.
