Samuel J. Leistedt e Paul Linkowski in Psychopathy and the Cinema: Fact or Fiction? - pubblicato on line sul "Journal of Forensic Sciences" il 13 dicembre 2013 - hanno indagato il rapporto tra cinema e psicopatia attraverso l'analisi della rappresentazione di personaggi psicopatici in film di grande successo.
Sono stati selezionati da 400 film (dal 1915 al 2010) 126 caratteri psicopatici di fantasia (21 donne e 105 uomini) in base al realismo e all'accuratezza clinica del loro profilo.

Su "The Boston Globe" A taxonomy of movie psychos. A searchable database with all 126 characters / Una tassonomia di psicopatici cinematografici. Un database ricercabile con tutti i 126 personaggi.
