The creator of ‘American Horror Story’ investigates on Netflix the life of one of the most gruesome serial killers in history

  • 10

After a few years in which John Wayne Gacy, Ed Gein or Henry Lee Lucas crowned the top of the most studied serial killers in history, eyes have turned to Jeffrey Dahmer, a rugged serial killer to whom we have already given some attention recommending the great ‘My friend Dahmer’. Now it’s Netflix’s turnwhich premieres the ten-episode series ‘Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story‘.

The production comes with the signature of Ryan Murphy, the prestigious author of ‘Glee’, ‘Nip/Tuck’, ‘Pose’ or ‘American Horror Story’ among many others. From the perspective of the victims, this new series will describe the horrible crimes Dahmer committed in the late 1970s and early 1990s, and which earned him the nickname ‘The Milwaukee Cannibal’. Many of his crimes involved cannibalism, dismemberment, and preservation of parts of his victims.

The series not only addresses, unlike others that focus merely on the motivations or the clinical description of the crimes, the point of view of the victims. It also wants to enter – like any good product true crime– in an analysis of the social circumstances that led to the crimes. In this case, Dahmer’s good-guy (albeit disturbing) appearance and how he carefully chose his prey will be dealt with in the series, as well as how they were cast aside by society because of their race and modest social background.

Bringing Dahmer to life is Evan Peters, Murphy’s collaborator on ‘American Horror Story’ and known among fandom for bringing Mercury to life in the X-Men movies and in ‘Scarlet Witch and the Vision.’ In the cast we can also find the teenage movie star of the eighties and current absolute cult actress Molly Ringwald.
