The Dahmer Monster... So far so good
It's been a few days since "Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story" appeared on Netflix and I finally got the time to watch a couple episodes.
This flick combines two of my favorite genres. Crime and based on real life events. So far I have seen three out the total ten episodes and I am really loving what they have done so far.
The cinematography is perfect and Evan Peters nails the role of the weirdo psychopath.
As the name of the series suggests, it follows the story of Jeffrey Dahmer. In case you are like me and you have never heard of this nice fella here's some quick info on him from Wikipedia:
Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer (/ˈdɑːmər/; May 21, 1960 – November 28, 1994), also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal or the Milwaukee Monster, was an American serial killer and sex offender who committed the murder and dismemberment of seventeen men and boys between 1978 and 1991. Many of his later murders involved necrophilia, cannibalism, and the permanent preservation of body parts—typically all or part of the skeleton.
Although he was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder,schizotypal personality disorder,and a psychotic disorder, Dahmer was found to be legally sane at his trial. He was convicted of fifteen of the sixteen murders he had committed in Wisconsin and was sentenced to fifteen terms of life imprisonment on February 17, 1992. On November 28, 1994, Dahmer was beaten to death by Christopher Scarver, a fellow inmate at the Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage, Wisconsin. source and more info
What a great guy!
I don't have an opinion yet on the series as a whole, but if the rest of the episodes are even half as good I will be a happy man. For now, it looks like it's one of those rare gems in the endless sea of poop Netflix is known for.
I'll keep you updated! It's getting late here but I'll try to go for another episode .. Or two 😅😂
