Netflix has dropped their brand new series from American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy called ‘Dahmer’ which will see American Horror Story veteran Evan Peters play the lead role in the series now available on the streaming platform.
According to the synopsis: “Many of his later murders involved necrophilia, cannibalism, and the permanent preservation of body parts—typically all or part of the skeleton.“
The series, “chronicles the story of one of America’s most notorious serial killers (Peters), largely told from the point of view of Dahmer’s victims, and dives deeply into the police incompetence and apathy that allowed the Wisconsin native to go on a multiyear killing spree.”
“Between 1978 and 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer gruesomely took the lives of seventeen innocent victims. DAHMER – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is a series that exposes these unconscionable crimes, centered around the underserved victims and their communities impacted by the systemic racism and institutional failures of the police that allowed one of America’s most notorious serial killers to continue his murderous spree in plain sight for over a decade.”
The series also stars Molly Ringwald, Niecy Nash, Michael Beach, Michael Learned, Penelope Ann Miller, Shaun J. Brown, Colin Ford, and Richard Jenkins.
