This chapter proposes the recognition of a new film genre called psychopath movies and suggests that this genre can profitably be included in the larger grouping of law films. Psychopaths provide fertile material not only for film makers and viewers but also for scholars interested in the intersections of popular culture and law. It examines films with psychopaths in the lead role including Taxi Driver, Marnie, and Natural Born Killers.

Keywords:   psychopath movies, law films, psychopaths, popular culture, law, Taxi Driver, Marnie, Natural Born Killers
