Description

Jeffrey Dahmer murdered 17 men and boys in the American Midwest, becoming one of history’s most infamous serial killers. This is the story before that story. Jeff (Disney Channel’s Ross Lynch) is an awkward teenager struggling to make it through high school with a family life in ruins. His bizarre behavior at school attracts unexpected friends, a group of band-nerds who form The Dahmer Fan Club, headed by Derf Backderf (Alex Wolff, “Patriots Day”). But as they near graduation, Jeff’s depravity continues to take hold, and he spirals further out of control. Based on Backderf’s critically acclaimed 2012 graphic novel and written for the screen and directed by Marc Meyers, MY FRIEND DAHMER is the haunting, sad, funny, true story of Jeffrey Dahmer in high school.

    Everyone hates prequels if they’re not continuing the story. Nobody wants to see a young Dahmer.

    This film was a bit unsettling but I just loved how Ross was able to lose himself in this movie. Also a great group of supporting cast. Two thumbs up to erveryone involved.
  • HE DOESN’T KILL ANYONE IN THE MOVIE

    I was expecting so much out of this movie and it was a crock of crap, extremely boring, and very dry to watch. Don't waste your money-- find a better movie to watch.

    This oscillates between scenes of him acting like a spaz (their word) and hurting animals or playing with their carcass. The performances were not horrible but they weren’t good enough to redeem the movie.
