My Friend Dahmer – A Quick Capsule Review

My Friend Dahmer – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
A very low key look at the early days of serial killer Jefferey Dahmer.  There’s little blood or gore here , instead the film choses to focus on the events that helped shape and form the teenager who would eventually become one of America’s most notorious serial murderers. Based on the book by  Derk Backderf, the film is incredibly low key and the direction by Meyers more functional that standout.  It wont connect for everyone, but those interest in just how a killer is formed this provides an interesting insight.

Best Bit: Excellent central performance by Ross Lynch
