The Backstory of a Serial Killer

A film by Marc Meyers

USA / 2017 / 107 min / Drama / Rated R
In English

There’s something different about Ohio high school student Jeff Dahmer. To get through the days, Jeff plays the class clown, feigning spastic fits to attract attention. After school, he retreats to his makeshift lab, where he dissolves roadkill in jars of acid. No one could foresee what he would become…

Based on the graphic novel by John Backderf—one of Dahmer’s former classmates—My Friend Dahmer is a grim origin story. Anchored by former Disney star Ross Lynch’s chilling lead performance, this is a terrifying, surprisingly empathetic look into one troubled teen’s descent into madness. Jeffrey Dahmer would later become one of the most notorious serial killers in American history. But here, he’s simply known as “Dahmer” – a not-so-regular high school student. – Lauren Cohen

“It sees Jeffrey Dahmer for what he was: a young man who could express himself only through the most hideous violence. Yet it shows you that what he had to express was real.” – Variety / Full review

“We already know the monster Dahmer will become, but Meyers also focuses on the better person he might have been, and the toxic formative experiences that prevent this & mould his tragic trajectory, pushing him into living up to his own cult image.” –Sight & Sound / Full review
