Can you imagine being friends with a future infamous serial killer?
‘My Friend Dahmer‘ is the adaptation of a 2012 graphic novel of the same name, written by John ‘Derf’ Backderf and follows the story of a man who was friends with the soon-to-be killer while attending an Ohio high school in the 1970’s. The summary from the film’s YouTube film trailer reads:
“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.“
Jeffrey Dahmer was sentenced to 16 life terms in prison but was beaten to death by a fellow inmate on November 28, 1994 while being held at a Wisconsin correctional facility.
The film is expected to be released by the end of 2017.
