This biopic of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer (Ross Lynch) details his senior year of high school in 1978 Ohio, as a group of classmates encourage him to channel his erratic behavior into unhinged pranks that they find hilarious. Written and directed by Marc Meyers, My Friend Dahmer is based on the graphic novel of the same name by Derf Backderf, a real-life friend and classmate of Dahmer's. Anne Heche, Dallas Roberts, Alex Wolff, and Vincent Kartheiser co-star.~Jack Rodgers
If you’re a true crime fanatic, and like to watch documentaries regarding serial killers and what made them snap or how they became the way they are, then you definitely need to check this to have a better understanding of what created the monster we call dahmer.
I'm not a fan of any movies based on serial killers. Now I'm not talking about Psycho, or Texas Chainsaw Massacre (those inspired by), I'm referring to the Ed Gein/Ted Bundy direct-to-video crap that came out in the early 2000s and beyond. But THIS film, My Friend Dahmer, it had a lot of heart and I was genuinely entertained and saddened at the same time. Also, made me feel a little borderline, because if I was there, I think I would have been friends with Jeff Dahmer in high school.
