‘My Friend Dahmer’ Trailer Gives Birth to a Serial Killer

Jeffrey Dahmer murdered 17 men and boys in the Midwest United States between 1978 and 1991 before being captured and incarcerated. He would become one of America’s most infamous serial killers. This is the story before that story…

Film Rise not only released the official trailer for Marc Meyers’ My Friend Dahmer, but also announced it will be opening November 3, 2017.

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, Nickelodeon’s “The Naked Brothers Band”). But this camaraderie can’t mask his growing depravity. Approaching graduation, Jeff spirals further out of control, inching ever closer to madness.

Filmrise, who has been releasing all of the “Forensic Files” and massively popular “Unsolved Mysteries” is behind the release of the widely praised My Friend Dahmer.

      You see the one that stars a Rowdy Roddy Pipper lookalike in the lead as Dahmer?

        I’m not entirely sure, is it an older film or a more current one?

      Agreed. You could tell he was going to be a huge star!

    Napoleon Dynamite 2 looks pretty weird.

    If it stays relatively true to the source material, this thing is really going to bug people. Good. I think we all need to be bugged.
