My Friend Dahmer Trailer

Marc MeyersMy Friend Dahmer (2017) teaser trailer stars Anne Heche, Vincent Kartheiser, Alex Wolff, Ross Lynch, and Dallas Roberts. My Friend Dahmer‘s plot synopsis: based on the graphic novel by Derf Backderf, “Jeff Dahmer (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), 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). But this camaraderie can’t mask his growing depravity. Approaching graduation, Jeff spirals further out of control, inching ever closer to madness.”

Given the context of what Jeffrey Dahmer eventually became, this trailer (and most-likely the film) is fascinating. The trailer also delivers more than a few chills as the viewer sees different aspects of Dahmer’s home and school life.

FilmBook writer Reggie Peralta saw My Friend Dahmer at the 2017 Los Angeles Film Festival and had this to say about the film:

There aren’t many movies about real-life serial killers, and there are even less that try to humanize them to the extent that My Friend Dahmer does. Without trying to coddle, without trying to excuse, Meyers’ makes us realize that even a demon like Dahmer was a boy once and wonder if things could have turned out differently for him

My Friend Dahmer also stars Miles Robbins, Carmen Gangale, Cameron McKendry, Tommy Nelson, Christopher Mele, Harrison Holzer, Zachary Davis Brown, Karin Boesler, Gary Lee Vincent, and Dave Sorboro.
