My Friend Dahmer - Official Trailer (US) - FilmRise

  • Added:  7 days ago
  • In Theaters November 2017


    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.

    Jeff Dahmer (Disney Channel’s Ross Lynch) is an awkward teenager struggling to make it through high school with a family life in ruins. He collects roadkill, fixates on a neighborhood jogger (Vincent Kartheiser, “Mad Men”), and copes with his unstable mother (Anne Heche) and well-intentioned father (Dallas Roberts). He begins to act out at school, and his goofball antics win over a group of band-nerds who form The Dahmer Fan Club, headed by Derf Backderf (Alex Wolff, "Patriots Day"). But this camaraderie can’t mask his growing depravity. Approaching graduation, Jeff spirals further out of control, inching ever closer to madness.

    Marc Meyers’s MY FRIEND DAHMER is the haunting, sad, funny, true story of Jeffrey Dahmer in high school, based on Derf Backderf’s critically acclaimed 2012 graphic novel of the same name and Meyers’s own 2014 Black List script.

    This looks good. I can't wait to see Ross lynchs portrayal of jeffrey. As sick as he was I find him very interesting

  • Panic! At The Larry Disco

    To the people wondering if the dog dies he let's it go after planning on killing it, but he couldn't go through with it. But later on I think he ended up killing the dog and nailing the corpse to a tree.

    It's going to feel weird watching Ross act like this compared to his Disney days but I'm really want to see this film. It seems like Ross is going to kill this role. No pun intended...

    everything about this is fantastic except i wish they did the accents? jeff & his dad had really pronounced midwestern kinda accents, and i'm sure the rest of their town did (i believe derf does too?) i just wished they did that, to make it more believable. otherwise looks amazing, im super psyched

    Looks fucking awesome! I really hope the theater in my town will be showing this. Disappointed it seems to depict him killing a squirrel though, he never killed animals he just collected roadkill. Still looks great though.

    • Meow Mew
      Meow Mew 4 days ago

      princeoftidds No actually, I've only ever heard that he didn't kill animals or harm them. He once almost killed a dog but decided not to. So although he did horrible things and killed people, it's never been documented in any way that he hurt animals.

    • princeoftidds
      princeoftidds 5 days ago

      He killed 17 people and did unspeakable things, you really think there was no progression killing animals before he took his first victim?

    it’s amazing how many R5/Ross Lynch fangirls are on here. You do realize that this is supposed to be an AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF JEFFREY DAHMER, not another film with Ross in it? Personally, I’d like to see Jeffrey Dahmer instead of Ross playing him (which I think/hope will be the case, looking at the trailer)

    • Vicky Prm
      Vicky Prm 6 days ago +3

      same tbh.
      but look on the bright side: everyone who watched the movie and knows Ross says that it's completely different to what he really is (Ross). I think he's a great actor- and now that he's off Disney maybe he can prove it.

    This is exciting! However, one thing that bothered me was the scene of him trapping a chipmunk. He would only dissect and preserve the remains of already dead animals he found along the road. He did lure a dog into the woods with the intent of killing it at one point, but could not go through with it. I would also question the part from the graphic novel about him butchering a small fish he caught.

    • Lizzie MacCartney
      Lizzie MacCartney 7 days ago +3

      Flara Katmai I get your confusion. A lot of people actually say this. But the director commented on that and he said he’d like to stick to the novel as much as possible, but the importance of drama in a film cannot be overlooked. He tried to stay true to the story while making the film a bit more dramatic because after all, its a film and how cruel it sounds, films gotta sell

      Since it was based on his high school years, I thought the only "bad" thing would be him dissecting the animals, but I didn't think it would have any sexual content.
