yesterday, Ryan Murphy & Ian Brennan I dropped a small teaser to let us know that the first two trailers for the upcoming Netflix series Dahmer – The Beast: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story It will drop on Friday. Good to know that they pride themselves on keeping promises because that’s exactly what was released this morning. On July 22, 1991, two police officers entered Jeffrey Dahmer’s apartment in Milwaukee (Evan Peters, the “American Horror Story” franchise). Inside, they found several body parts and severed heads in the fridge and freezer, as well as countless Polaroid pictures of mutilated bodies. He was arrested and later confessed to the horrific murders of at least 17 people, mostly young gay men, during a 13-year killing spree that began in 1978. How did the serial killer get away with his crimes for so long? This is just one of the questions the series hopes to answer on September 21st:
For an interesting and unsettling look at Peters’ performance, we have the first two official trailers for the 10-episode series waiting for you below (with the second trailer coming out on September 20). Peters joins the main cast Richard Jenkins (Lionel Dahmer), Molly Ringwald (Sharry Dahmer), Learn Michael (Catherine Dahmer), and Niecy Nash-Betts (Glenda Cleveland).
Between 1978 and 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer took the lives of seventeen innocent victims. DAHMER – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is a series that exposes these preposterous crimes, centered around disenfranchised victims and their communities affected by the systemic racism and institutional failure of the police that allowed one of America’s most notorious serial killers to continue his killing spree. In plain sight for more than a decade.
