Okay so when I was looking at this screen grab right here in the trailer, I thought this was going to be your standard coming of age type film. I didn’t really put two and two together that this was referring to the serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.
Jeffrey Dahmer murdered 17 men and boys in the Midwest United States between 1978 and 1991 before being captured and incarcerated. He would become one of America’s most infamous serial killers. This is the story before that story.
The role of Jeffrey Dahmer is played by Austin & Ally star Ross Lynch and his performance in even the trailer has made him unrecognizable. I never would have thought that the Disney Channel star that I had previously watched could transform into a role like this, but I think that this is going to make him blow up. The trailer is haunting and eerie, but left me feeling sad afterwards. I’m looking forward to seeing what critics will say about it.
