Goofs

When Lionel returns to his mother's house, he turns on the television to see his son, Jeffrey Dahmer's mugshot on the news. In the mugshot, he has a handlebar mustache without glasses. This is a mugshot from his 1986 arrest (another mugshot from 1982 has him with the handlebar mustache with glasses, both arrests for indecent exposure). When Jeffrey Dahmer was arrested for murder in 1991, he did not have a mustache in his mugshot, and wore a windbreaker jacket. See more »

4 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

Snooty, pompous, and pointless. This movie makes a very weak attempt to use art-house-style drama to represent the story of Dahmer. I actually got fooled into initially thinking that it was a documentary. The cover is somewhat misleading in this regard, and, if you make the same mistake I did, then you will be super-disappointed. The acting is poor, the film-work is poor, even the soundtrack is corny and revolting. There is nothing in this movie that is good. The only good thing that happened was when my flatmate walked in front of the TV and obscured my vision. I gave Raising Jeffrey Dahmer 1 star because I was forced to by the system. My real rating is definitely in the negatives. To the movie maker: Why oh why did you do this? To the consumer: Do NOT buy this. Spend your money on ANYTHING else.
