My Friend Dahmer at the Hippodrome Cinema

In 2012 “Derf” Backderf released his graphic novel My Friend Dahmer, a retelling of his time at Eastview Junior High and Revere High School and his friend at the time, Jeffery Dahmer.

This is the film adaptation of that story.

Jeffrey Dahmer murdered 17 men and boys in the American Midwest, becoming

one of history’s most infamous serial killers. This is the story before that story. Jeff (Disney Channel’s Ross Lynch) is an awkward teenager struggling to make it through high school with a family life in ruins. His bizarre behavior at school attracts unexpected friends, a group of band-nerds who form The Dahmer Fan Club, headed by Derf Backderf (Alex Wolff, “Patriots Day”). But as they near graduation, Jeff’s depravity continues to take hold, and he spirals further out of control.

“Disturbingly compelling and original” – Variety
“A window into the making of a monster” – Time Out New York
