My Friend Dahmer

Based on the true story of Jeffrey Dahmer who murdered seventeen men and boys in the American Midwest, becoming one of history’s most infamous serial killers. MY FRIEND DAHMER is the haunting story of the time before that: Jeff is an awkward teenager struggling to make it through high school as his family life implodes. His bizarre behavior at school attracts unexpected friends, a group of nerds (headed by Derf Backderf) that forms The Dahmer Fan Club. But as they near graduation, Jeff’s depravity takes hold and he spirals further out of control.

This award-winning film is based on Backderf’s critically acclaimed 2012 graphic novel and is directed by Marc Meyers. Starring Ross Lynch, Alex Wolff, Vincent Kartheiser and Emmy® nominee Anne Heche.
