The success story of a documentary or film about serial killers was proven once again this week with the release of Netflix’s new series Mindhunter, which tells the true story of FBI agents who studied the minds of serial killers to hunt them down. For those who’ve already finished the 10 episodes, don’t worry because there’s another serial killer film on its way. This one, however, tells the story from a serial killer’s friend’s perspective. Not just any serial killer but Jeffrey Dahmer.
Between 1978 and 1991 Jeffrey murdered, ate and raped 17 boys and men before getting arrested. The film focuses on Jeffrey’s youth and where it all went wrong. All based on the book ‘My Friend Dahmer‘ written by Jeffrey’s best friend at the time, who shared his experiences with the serial killer ‘in the making’.
My Friend Dahmer will be released towards the end of this year.
