Cinematic horrors pale in comparison to some of the things that happen in real life – and the story of serial killer Jeffery Dahmer is among some of the most horrific things to ever happen. Netflix and Ryan Murphy, who horror fans should know from AHS, have put together a new series that outlines the life, and murders of the prolific killer.
Evan Peters will star as Dahmer – and the trailer gives us our first look at his performance.
For those of you who might need a refresher on the horrors that Dahmer inflicted:
“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.”
An amazing supporting cast has been assembled that includes Molly Ringwald, Niecy Nash, Michael Beach, Michael Learned, Penelope Ann Miller, Shaun J. Brown, Colin Ford, and Richard Jenkins.
Don’t have to wait long to check this one out – the series hits Netflix on Sept. 21st.
