Movie ID help: Yuppie killer movie

I saw a preview for a movie a couple months ago that had 1 or 2 (I forget) yuppies, blonde hair/blue eyes, clean cut pretty boys that were breaking into houses and torturing/killing people. I seemed really bizarre and I can't remember what it's called.

Any help?

Thanks,

Funny Games?

By your thread title I instantly thought of American Psycho but that's not it.

Sounds like Funny Games, which was a shot-for-shot remake of the German flick Funny Games.

Trailers here.

I've seen the original version (which is supposed to be just like the new version)
I loved it but its not for everyone because of a twist that occurs near the end of the film. It is still one of the most disturbing thrillers Ive seen. Cant wait to see the new version.

I've seen the original and the remake and they are both phenomenal. I think the original is just a slight bit better (someone mentioned in another thread that the intruders in the original have a slight air of resentment towards the upper-class that is missing in the remake), but either one is great.

Very visceral and gut wrenching, and yet not graphic at all. It's a very unique film that had the entire theater leaving in a stunned silence.

Hm, you've piqued my interest.

Yeah... I watched the original with some friends in the home theater a while back, our responses were a little more varied ("That was fucking stupid." "That was fucked up." "Meh" amongst others).

It's worth watching, just don't expect to be blown away.
