There will always be fans of true-crime and those curious about serial killers. When it comes to serial killers we seem to see more about Ted Bundy and Charles Manson than any other murderers, but now Emmy Award Winner Ryan Murphy is set to shed light on the infamous serial killer, Jeffrey Dahmer.
Ryan Murphy, the creator of “American Horror Story” and most recently creator of Netflix’s “Racheted”, along his producing partner Ian Brennan have received the green light from Netflix for the limited series “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” which centers on Dahmer, one of America’s most well-known killers. Told from mostly the point of view of his victims, the series will also delve into the investigation, including the fact that he was let go as many as ten times after being apprehended, Variety reports.
“Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” will star Richard Jenkins (The Shape of Water) and will be directed by Janet Mock and Carl Franklin. Murphy, Brennan, Franklin, and Mock will executive produce the project.
Dahmer was charged with the murder, mutilation, and cannibalism of seventeen men and boys from 1978 to 1991. Also known as the “Milwaukee Cannibal” or the “Milwaukee Monster,” Dahmer had a taste for flesh, necrophilia, and kept body parts belonging to his victims as trophies. Often bringing victims home from bars he would drug them, photograph them, rape them, and murder them (not always in that order). Dahmer met his end at the hands of a fellow inmate. He was beaten to death at the Columbia Correctional Institution in Wisconsin while serving out his life sentences.
