Monsters: The Story by Jeffrey Dahmer Summary
Dahmer is a well-known figure because his crimes were so heinous. The serial killer lived in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and murdered 17 men between 1978 and 1991 – at least that many he was convicted of. He is most notorious for engaging in necrophilia and cannibalism with his victims. It really is a cruel story.
Here’s the official Netflix synopsis:
“Between 1978 and 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer cruelly took the lives of seventeen innocent victims. DAHMER – Monsters: The Story of Jeffrey Dahmer is a series that uncovers these unscrupulous crimes and centers around the underserved victims and their communities affected by the systemic racism and institutional failures of the police force that have enabled one of America’s most notorious serial killers to lead his killing spree for over a decade eyes to continue. ”

Netflix also just released the first trailer for Monsters: The Story of Jeffrey Dahmer, and I have to say it looks great. We know from the cast that the acting will be good, and the trailer proves that it’s really well done too. The tone is extremely dark, as it should be, and it looks very convincing.
