My Friend Dahmer

Chilling With ‘My Friend Dahmer’ Trailer – It’s M-M-Good

MY FRIEND DAHMER is based on the graphic novel by John Backderf. Dahmer was an acquaintance of Backderf’s in the 1970s as they both attended Revere High School located in Bath Township, adjacent to the village of Richfield, Ohio.

Derf’s graphic novel chronicles the years he spent together with Dahmer in high school, unknowingly witnessing his friend’s transformation into the most depraved Serial Killerin modern history. Along the way, Derf asks pertinent questions about why nobody – especially the adults – ever figured out Dahmer was tormented by what in hindsight were painfully obvious personal demons.{TV Tropes}

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.
