Serial Killer Edmund Kemper Analyzes His Vicious Crimes in ‘Kemper on Kemper’ Trailer (Exclusive Video)

  • The Wrap
Edmund Kemper, a vicious serial killer who haunted the United States for decades, analyzes himself in an exclusive trailer for Oxygen’s “Kemper on Kemper: Inside the Mind of a Serial Killer.”

“I’m not an expert, I’m not an authority — I am someone who has been a murderer for almost 20 years,” Kemper says on an audio tape.

Kemper murdered 10 people, including his grandparents and his mother in the years spanning 1969 through 1973. He was sentenced to life in prison after he turned himself in to the authorities following the killing of his mother.

New Manson Doc Goes Inside Spahn Ranch

It would be easy to believe that Fox’s new two-hour, Liev Schreiber-narrated special, Inside the Manson Cult: The Lost Tapes, would simply re-trod old territory. With so much already out there on the man, his followers and their infamous two-day murder spree in Los Angeles in August 1969, does this documentary show anything new, or is it the latest attempt to capitalize on our continued fascination with Manson and the true crime genre?

In some ways, yes, it falls into this pattern. Sure, it tells the usual Manson narrative:

Donald Trump Continues Puerto Rico Rant As Five Confirmed Dead In Hurricane Florence

  • Deadline
Updated: As the death toll in Hurricane Florence climbed to five, President Donald Trump squeezed out more tweets insisting the number of deaths attributed to Hurricane Maria in a government funded study is horseradish served up by Democrats and journalists to attack him.

Our president has been working up a froth all evening on the subject. Most recently he railed, “‘When Trump visited the island territory last October, Officials told him in a briefing 16 People had died from Maria.’ The Washington Post. This was long After the hurricane took place. Over many months it went to 64 People. Then, like magic, ‘3000 People Killed’.”

“They hired……Gwu Research to tell them how may people had died in Puerto Rico (how would they not know this?) This method was never done with previous hurricanes because other jurisdictions know how many people were killed. Fifty Times Last Original Number – No Way!”

‘My Friend Dahmer’ DVD Review

Stars: Ross Lynch, Alex Wolff, Anne Heche, Dallas Roberts, Miles Robbins, Vincent Kartheiser | Written and Directed by Marc Meyers

Based on the acclaimed true-life graphic novel by John “Derf” Backderf, this compelling and unsettling teen drama is part serial killer prequel and part high school coming of age movie.

Former Disney Channel star Ross Lynch plays future serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer (who would go on to murder 17 young men and even eat some of them) in his final year of high school in 1977-1978 Ohio. Largely ignored by his fellow students, Jeffrey takes to pretending to have a fit in the school corridors and is unexpectedly adopted by a trio of nerdy outsiders lead by wannabe cartoonist Derf (Alex Wolff), who look upon his “spazzing out” routine as a sort of performance art.

Meanwhile, Jeffrey finds himself unable to deal with his feelings for a bearded jogger (Vincent Kartheiser) he

Win My Friend Dahmer on DVD

To mark the release of My Friend Dahmer, out now, we’ve been given 3 copies to give away on DVD.

Jeffrey Dahmer murdered seventeen men and boys in the Midwest United States between 1978 and 1991 before being captured and incarcerated. This is the story before that story.

Jeff Dahmer is an awkward teenager who collects roadkill. It’s the end of his junior year and he’s practically invisible. His family life (Anne Heche as Joyce Dahmer) is coming undone. He fixates on a neighborhood jogger who routinely passes by his house. By the start of senior year, he acts out, throwing epileptic-like fits in the halls. His goofball antics win over a group of band-nerds who form The Dahmer Fan Club headed by Backderf. This camaraderie can’t mask his growing depravity as approaching graduation Jeff spirals further out of control.

Please note: This competition is open to UK residents

John Oliver Unpacks Fox News’ Compassion For Harassment Victims: Those Poor Fear-Frozen Men

John Oliver Unpacks Fox News’ Compassion For Harassment Victims: Those Poor Fear-Frozen Men
HBO’s John Oliver last night duly noted a fresh compassion and concern over at Fox News Channel for victims of sexual harassment – all those poor male executives claiming to be too frightened to hire women.

Just two days after Ronan Farrow’s latest New Yorker expose – this one chronicling accusations of vile behavior by chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves and a toxic atmosphere at 60 Minutes – Oliver devoted Sunday’s episode of Last Week Tonight to the subject of workplace harassment and #MeToo, building up to an interview with Anita Hill.

Following clips of Fnc’s Tucker Carlson and Jesse Watters fretting melodramatically over the suddenly precarious position of men in the post-Weinstein era, Oliver asked Hill whether men should be “terrified to be alone” with female colleagues.

“Not if they’re not harassing,” Hill said. “If you’re harassing you should be terrified. The whole idea of false claims

Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers Revive 'Really!?!' to Call Out James Comey's Advice to Democrats — Watch

Amy Poehler and Seth Meyers Revive 'Really!?!' to Call Out James Comey's Advice to Democrats — Watch
Here’s one revival we’ll always appreciate. Amy Poehler reunited with former Saturday Night Live co-star Seth Meyers on Wednesday, appearing on Late Night to resurrect their popular Weekend Update segment “Really!?!”

This time around, the onetime co-anchors took former FBI director James Comey to task for a recent tweet suggesting that the Democratic Party has moved too far to the left ahead of the midterm elections. Suffice it to say, neither Poehler nor Meyers was too pleased with his input.

“Really, James Comey?! You’re worried Democrats are going to move too far to the left?” Poehler asked,

Netflix’s Dark Tourist and the trouble with ‘extreme’ travel TV

David Farrier’s series follows in the footsteps of Ross Kemp and Vice by making titillating television from war zones and disaster sites. It’s shallow and sordid

One of the most unpleasant rumours I can recall emerging from the Balkan wars of the 1990s was of a German agency who organised trips for tourists to “visit” the conflict and even participate. There’s nothing quite so appalling as that in David “Tickled” Farrier’s new Netflix series Dark Tourist, although it does venture into the grotesquely bizarre. He looks at the trend for Nuclear Tourism, for example, in which people flock to soak up the radiation left behind following the disaster in Fukushima, as well as the tourist industry that has built up around the serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. He also visits locations in Africa and South America associated with death and destruction that some tourists find somehow attractive,

Piers Morgan Tells Us America’s Most Dangerous Serial Killers Inspired ‘Nothing But Loathing’ in Him

  • The Wrap
In Oxygen’s newest true-crime show, “Serial Killer With Piers Morgan,” the famed TV personality sits in a giant, cleared out room in a prison, just two feet away from America’s most dangerous serial killers, with only one guard watching over them from the other side of the room.

“It’s pretty intimidating, I can’t pretend otherwise. Lorenzo Gilyard, the ‘Kansas City Strangler,’ strangled at least 12 people and he’s just sitting two feet away, there’s only one guard standing at the other end of the room,” Morgan, who almost bumped knees with the murderers as he interviewed them, told TheWrap. “These are the most dangerous criminals imaginable and on one level, you think, surely nothing will happen, but at the other point, he has nothing to lose. It’s an intimidating dynamic and you have to keep your wits about it. But you gotta watch it because before you go in,

Get ready to meet the next generation of Sabrina the Teenage Witch!

Second Opinion – My Friend Dahmer (2018)

My Friend Dahmer, 2018.

Written and Directed by Marc Meyers.

Starring Ross Lynch, Alex Wolff, Anne Heche, Dallas Roberts.

Synopsis:

A young Jeffrey Dahmer struggles to belong in high school.

Despite being about one of the most depraved serial killer ever to have lived, My Friend Dahmer plays out with striking normality. That is not to say Dahmer is portrayed as a normal person, just that his story is not nearly as exceptional as you might expect. Whether this more grounded portrayal is to the film’s benefit or its detriment depends on what kind of movie you’re hoping to see.

The story follows a young Jeffrey Dahmer (Ross Lynch) through his final year of high school. We are shown how he evolves from a total loner to the idol of “The Dahmer Fan club” – a group of three boys who admire Dahmer for his quirkiness and his sporadic behaviour.

Sympathy for the Devils: Are Movie Psychos Changing for the Better?

  • HeyUGuys
Violence and psychopathy are meant to be married. The labels “serial killer”, “murderer”, and “psycho” immediately conjure up the images of grotesque lunatics with (often literally) an axe to grind. Horror and exploitation movies like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre covered this beautifully – showing every bone, every hair, every flap of skin; concluding with a man in a mask dancing around with a rusty chainsaw. Torture Porn and Splatter Films entered the 21st century with a franchise interest for drowning the screen in blood and guts – as in the Saw franchise, which in its (as of last year) eight installations developed many ludicrous ways of a psycho ripping people, and their bodies, apart.

But in recent psycho-dramas, such a gory attitude to constructing serial killers isn’t such a common tact. Like the infamous ear-cutting scene in Reservoir Dogs, filmmakers appear to be panning away from extreme violence and focusing on

My Friend Dahmer – portrait of the serial killer as a young man

Based on a schoolfriend’s memories of the 70s murderer Jeffrey Dahmer, Marc Meyers’s convincing film looks at the boy who became the maniac

“Friends are our connection to this world,” says Lionel Dahmer, concerned by the fact that his eldest son, Jeffrey, doesn’t seem to have any. Yet, as this film’s title suggests, Jeffrey Dahmer had at least one friend – John “Derf” Backderf, who wrote the bestselling, based-on-a-true-story graphic novel it’s adapted from.

Jeffrey Dahmer would go on to become one of America’s most notorious serial killers, raping, murdering and cannibalising 17 young men, and confessing to his crimes in 1991. In this drama, writer-director Marc Meyers looks at Dahmer in his last year of high school in an attempt to figure out who he might have been before the atrocities that came to define him.

From Disney star to Jeffrey Dahmer: how Ross Lynch reinvented his career

After years in teen dramas and a squeaky-clean pop group, the 22-year-old has taken on the role of the notorious murderer. But changing his image is all part of the plan

Ross Lynch has just taken the strangest journey. After almost a decade as a successful teen-idol musician, touring the world with his family band R5, and as an established aristocrat in the realm of teen TV shows, he has jumped from the Disney Channel to playing serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.

As we eat breakfast in a cafe in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles, down the hill from the house he shares with two of his bandmate brothers, Lynch’s upbeat, clean-cut demeanour could not be further from Dahmer’s stoop-shouldered creepiness. My Friend Dahmer is based on an acclaimed 2012 graphic novel by Derf Backderf, who was at high school with Dahmer in the late 70s and was part of a coterie that,

My Friend Dahmer review – chilling insight into the making of a serial killer

This eerily unsettling biopic explores the tormented high-school years of multiple murderer Jeffrey Dahmer

The Childhood of a Serial Killer could be an alternative title for this queasily gripping movie from writer-director Marc Meyers. It’s about the teenage years of Jeffrey Dahmer in the 1970s and especially his high-school penchant for pretending to have epileptic fits – to the hilarity of his nasty and fickle friends. What sort of a creep mocks people with a physical disability do you imagine? And what sort of a community rewards such a creep with anti-establishment hero status? The film shows the teenage Dahmer going on a school trip to Washington DC, entering the White House and meeting the vice-president, Walter Mondale. The film has embellished things a bit. In real life, Dahmer only got to watch Mondale working and didn’t actually speak to him. But this brings Dahmer closer to America’s

My Friend Dahmer Review

“All I know is that I wanted to see what the insides of these animals looked like,” says serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, recalling his teenage pastime of finding animals and cutting them up. The opening scene of My Friend Dahmer – the new film about his school years – has Jeffrey (Ross Lynch) stare out of a schoolbus window at a dead carcass lying mangled in the road. Later, Dahmer shows two teenagers his collection of dead animals kept in jars of acid.

These gruesome early experiences could be seen as tame compared to the 17 murders he committed between ’78 and ’91, many of which involved rape and dismemberment, but the film’s foreshadowing is frightening enough, as writer-director Marc Meyers slowly reveals certain snapshots of Dahmer’s adolescence – developing like polaroid pictures. He goes to school like everyone else, feels awkward like everyone else, tells jokes like everyone else – and we know what

‘My Friend Dahmer’ Review: Dir. Marc Meyers (2018)

My Friend Dahmer review: A feature character study of teenager Jeffrey Dahmer, a boy who grows into one of the most notorious serial killers of the 20th Century.

My Friend Dahmer review by Andrew Gaudion.

It’s a setup we’ve all seen before; a film focusing on a senior year in high school, going through all the trials and tribulations of the final few months in which characters aim to define their high school experience and try to establish a sense of who they are. Even a 70’s setting isn’t that unique for a coming of age high school drama. But what is unique about this high school drama is that the weirdo in class isn’t just someone who gets left behind as an obscure high school memory, he is someone who goes down in infamy, as the focus of My Friend Dahmer is none other than a teenager Jeffrey Dahmer,

Movie Review – My Friend Dahmer (2018)

My Friend Dahmer, 2018.

Written and directed by Marc Meyers.

Starring Ross Lynch, Alex Wolff, Anne Heche, Dallas Roberts and Vincent Kartheiser.

Synopsis:

Jeffrey Dahmer forms friendships in his senior year at high school, but there are glimpses of the personality that would eventually lead him to become one of America’s most notorious serial killers.

The premise of My Friend Dahmer is a simple one. Was the psychopathic serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer also a bit weird at high school? Anyone who immediately answers that question in the affirmative, which should probably be everyone, has pre-empted everything this movie has to offer. Based on a book by one of Dahmer’s high school friends and starring Disney Channel alum Ross Lynch as the teenager who would grow into a killer, it’s a story that probably seemed thought-provoking on paper – indeed it appeared on the Black List in 2014 – but doesn’t excel on the big screen.
