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 has just provided us with an exclusive look at Marc Meyers’ My Friend Dahmer, opening November 3, 2017. The footage shows Ross Lynch as Jeffrey Dahmer, who is berated by his day for his “pet cemetery” and hanging out in a creepy shed too much.
“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.
