My Friend Dahmer Rated 15

My Friend Dahmer

Dir. Marc Meyers. USA, 2017. 1h 47m. Starring Ross Lynch, Anne Heche, Dallas Roberts, Alex Wolff, Vincent Kartheiser.

A group of teens take the young Jeffrey Dahmer under their wing and make him a mascot for their gang of outsiders. A subversive serial killer drama based on an autobiographical graphic novel by cartoonist John "Derf" Backderf, who was a classmate of Dahmer’s at high school.

‘From mild ennui to utter terror and sorrow…A unique entry into the serial killer movie genre, and one of the best.’ ★★★★ Elena Lazic, Little White Lies

'Ross Lynch is eerily good as Dahmer, like a very young Philip Seymour Hoffman - stolidly silent, heavy-footed, incubating his resentments.’ ★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
