Jeffrey Dahmer was one of America’s most infamous serial killers. This is the story before that story. This is the haunting, sad, funny, true story of Dahmer in high school, based on Derf Backderf’s critically acclaimed 2012 graphic novel of the same name and Meyers’own 2014 Black List script. Jeff Dahmer (Disney Channel’s Ross Lynch) is an awkward teenager struggling to make it through high school with a family life in ruins. He collects roadkill, fixates on a neighborhood jogger (Vincent Kartheiser, Mad Men), and copes with his unstable mother (Anne Heche) and well-intentioned father (Dallas Roberts). He begins to act out at school, and his goofball antics win over a group of band-nerds who form The Dahmer Fan Club, headed by Derf Backderf (Alex Wolff, Patriots Day). Approaching graduation, Jeff spirals further out of control, inching ever closer to madness.

Reviews

My Friend Dahmer” is disturbing, compelling, and original. “My Friend Dahmer” is the movie that Gus Van Sant’s “Elephant” wanted to be: a humanizing dissection of teen psychosis.
