“American Horror Story” veteran Evan Peters stars as the infamous serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer in Netflix’s new series “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” which reunites Peters with “AHS” creator Ryan Murphy.



The trailer has arrived that gives us a glimpse into the depravity of the crimes of murder, necrophobic, and cannibal, Dahmer who murdered at least 17 young men and boys between 1978 and 1991. With many of his victims, he would sedate them and drill a hole in their heads and would then pour in chemicals in the hole in an attempt to create the perfect zombie lover that would never leave him. I didn’t work.


The series, “chronicles the story of one of America’s most notorious serial killers (Peters), largely told from the point of view of Dahmer’s victims, and dives deeply into the police incompetence and apathy that allowed the Wisconsin native to go on a multiyear killing spree.”


“Between 1978 and 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer gruesomely took the lives of seventeen innocent victims and exposes the brutal crimes, centered around the underserved victims and their communities impacted by the systemic racism and institutional failures of the police that allowed one of America’s most notorious serial killers to continue his murderous spree in plain sight for over a decade.”


The cast also includes Molly Ringwald, Niecy Nash, Michael Beach, Michael Learned, Colin Ford, Penelope Ann Miller, Shaun J. Brown, and Richard Jenkins.


Jeffrey Dahmer was most recently played by Ross Lynch in the film My Friend Dahmer. Jeremy Renner also played Dahmer back in 2002 in Dahmer.


Tune in for the premiere of “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” on Netflix on September 21, 2022.
