Not as good as I was expecting but still awesome!
18 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

My Friend Dahmer is a film that follows the life of a young Jeffrey Dahmer, a serial killer who murdered 17 males...(gulp) and basically this film explains how Dahmer descended into madness and how he became a serial killer. I was pretty surprised when I heard about this film when the trailer came out, I was immediatly like "Hell yes! I am watcing this" and when I watched it only last night, I really enjoyed it. I would not say the film is a masterpiece or anything but it was a descent little indie film, there is not much else to say, the performances were very good in the film but that's basically it. My Friend Dahmer is a good film, now, for Dahmer people who want to see an actual film based on him and know all about him, well now that I don't know??
