American limited biographical drama series Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story was created by Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan and premiered on Netflix on September 21, 2022 for a single season. Both Murphy and Brennan are Executive Producers and showrunners.
The series chronicles the life of notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer (Evan Peters).
Dahmer’s grandma Catherine, stepmother Shari (Molly Ringwald), father Lionel (Richard Jenkins), and suspicious neighbor Glenda (Niecy Nash) also make appearances (Michael Learned). In its first week of release, Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story topped the streaming service’s popularity rankings.
The series was met with mixed reviews from critics, with some complimenting the acting (especially Peters’) and others finding it exploitative.
The ten-part series, starring Peters as the infamous serial murderer, is primarily recounted from the perspective of Dahmer’s victims and delves extensively into the police incompetence and apathy that allowed the Wisconsin native to continue on a killing spree that lasted for years.
At least ten near-arrests of Dahmer that ended in his freedom are dramatized in the series.
After another successful week, the Ryan Murphy series has surpassed the fourth season of Stranger Things to become Netflix’s second most popular series of all time.
The series maintained its #1 spot on Netflix’s global Top 10 English TV List for a third consecutive week, with 205.33M hours watched.
Jeffery Dahmer is one of the most infamous serial killers in American history. The Milwaukee native terrorized the city for over a decade and was responsible for the murders of about 17 people. His gruesome acts have left a lasting impression on the public and have sparked much debate about the nature of evil and how to prevent similar tragedies in the future.
Dahmer was born in Milwaukee in 1960. He had a difficult childhood and was known to be a loner. He was also known to be a heavy drinker and often drank in excess. He dropped out of high school and attempted to join the army, but was rejected due to his alcohol abuse. He eventually found a job as a chocolate factory worker and moved in with his grandmother.
In 1978, Dahmer committed his first murder. He lured a hitchhiker to his grandmother’s house and killed him. Over the next 13 years, Dahmer killed about 16 more people. He usually targeted young men and lured them to his home, where he would drug them, rape them, and then dismember their bodies. He also kept some of their body parts as souvenirs.
In 1991, Dahmer was finally caught and arrested. He was convicted of 15 counts of murder and sentenced to life in prison. During his trial, Dahmer claimed he was driven by an uncontrollable urge to kill. He also expressed remorse for his actions and asked for forgiveness.
