We were totally stoked upon hearing the news that a new movie about Jeffrey Dahmer was in production and now we’re even more hyped after seeing the official trailer.

For those of you who aren’t aware of who Dahmer is, he was one of the most sadistic and notorious serial killers in history, taking the lives of 17 men and boys between the years of 1978 and 1991 and performing terrible acts of necrophilia, cannibalism and torture. He was eventually caught and given life in prison, but was beaten to death whilst serving time by another prisoner.
His case was made even more fascinating due to the seemingly “normal” upbringing he had, although if this film is anything to go by, perhaps it wasn’t so normal after all. The movie is based on the graphic novel ‘My Friend Dahmer’, written by John Backderf who actually went to school with Dahmer. The narrative discusses the school days of the budding serial killer and how he was considered a bit of a misfit even before he started his crime spree. If only his classmates knew what he would go on to do.
It looks like this is going to be a dark watch – I can’t wait. If you’re looking forward to watching this too then you’re in luck because it’s expected to be released in Autumn of this year.
We’ve got so many good horror movies coming out this year, including the new ‘It’ remake – the most hyped up film of 2017.
