There have been a lot of documentaries and dramatizations about Jeffrey Dahmer but Ryan Murphy is putting his own spin on the story later this month in Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story. Murphy regular Evan Peters plays Dahmer, who murdered 17 young men over the course of a decade in Wisconsin. Police incompetency let Dahmer remain on the streets and keep killing, despite obvious signs like the horrific smells and screams coming from his apartment. Richard Jenkins, Penelope Ann Miller, Molly Ringwald, Niecy Nash, and Michael Learned co-star. Peters looks absolutely horrifying in the series and it kind of feels like a mash-up of Murphy’s American Horror and American Crime shows. Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story arrives on Netflix on September 21st and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
