The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz ~ 'Swapped' Brings Gender-Flipped American Psycho!

Honey Buzz ~ 'Swapped' Brings Gender-Flipped American Psycho!


It wasn't that long ago that Margot Robbie re-created a scene from American Psycho, and proved that women made an equally-killer Patrick Bateman. Now, Dani Faith Leonard has created a series on Vimeo, where she will re-create classic film scenes, but with the focal gender flipped, to draw attention to the disparity between in the sexes in film.

And she started with American Psycho. It is a thing of beauty.

Swapped gained a lot of attention over the weekend because it contained a rare cameo from child actor Mara Wilson as Paula Allen, in a role made famous by Jared Leto in the film.

But Swapped is going to be an important project as it moves forward, because it gives viewers a chance to shed their preconceptions about what makes a character memorable, outside of their gender. Hopefully Swapped: American Psycho is just the first in a series of shorts that make us question what we see in Hollywood!
