Will you take another dose of Dahmer? The famous killer will be at the heart of a documentary series put online on October 7 on Netflix.
The Dahmer series: Monster – The story of Jeffrey Dahmer is THE unexpected success of the season. Arrived by surprise on Netflix, this new production by Ryan Murphy tells us the journey of the killer, from his difficult childhood to his conviction in 1992. It is a transfigured Evan Peters who slips into the skin of the cannibal.
If Ryan Murphy and his screenwriters have allowed themselves a few liberties, the documentary series on Dahmer that Netflix will offer from October 7 will be closer to the truth.
In Self-portrait of a killer, we can hear unpublished interviews of the prisoner who confesses to his lawyer. An open door to his deranged mind that continues to fascinate decades later. Between archive images and testimonials, this new part promises to be particularly captivating.
This is not the first time that Netflix has taken an interest in serial killers since in the Self-portrait of a killer collection, we can already watch a report on John Wayne Gacy and Ted Bundy, two other major American criminals. Everything is produced by Joe Berlinger, an expert in true crime.
Jeffrey Dahmer: Self-Portrait of a Killer will consist of 3 episodes only. It should be of particular interest to those who want to know a little more about the Milwaukee cannibal but who haven’t hooked up with Evan Peters’ series, which is particularly violent and unhealthy.
