The recent release of Monsters: The Story of Jeffrey Dahmer starring Evan Peters has broken Netflix records and attracted millions of viewers. And now that Netflix is releasing Conversations with a Murderer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes on October 7, that’s sure to pique the interest of the streaming service’s audience.
The three-episode true crime documentary is directed by Joe Berlinger. This is the third story in the Conversations with a Murderer Series. The other two that precede this iteration are about serial killers Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy.
While monster was a fictionalized narration of the real serial killer, the new documentaries will feature never-before-heard audio interviews between Dahmer and his defense team. So we’ll hear from the harrowing man himself, describing the 17 murders he committed, some involving necrophilia, cannibalism and the permanent preservation of body parts.
Conversations with a Murderer: The Summary of the Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes
So what can we expect in the next episode of Conversations with a Murderer? When Milwaukee police broke into the home of 31-year-old Jeffrey Dahmer in July 1991, they discovered the grisly personal museum of a serial killer. This included a freezer full of human heads, skulls, bones and other remains in various stages of decomposition and display.
Dahmer quickly confessed to 16 murders in Wisconsin over the past four years, another in Ohio in 1978, and to acts of necrophilia and cannibalism. The story shocked and captivated the nation and local community, who wondered how a killer could have gone unnoticed for over a decade despite being convicted of sexually assaulting a minor in 1988.
One reason is that he targets gay men and men of color. According to Netflix, the documentary delves into Dahmer’s warped psyche and answers the unanswered questions of police accountability through a modern lens.
Conversations with a Murderer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes begins streaming on Netflix on Friday, October 7th.
