'My Friend Dahmer'

Long before he entered the Serial Killer Hall of fame, Jeffery Dahmer (Disney Channel heartthrob Ross Lynch) was just another high-school senior, collecting road-kill skeletons and befriending fellow students like cartoonist Derf (Alex Wolff). Soon, however, this awkward young man starts to realize he's a little ... different. Like, say, when he fantasizes about killing young men that he's attracted to, like the local doctor (Mad Men's Vincent Kartheiser). Based on Backderf's autobiographical graphic novel, the film offers a sympathetic look into Dahmer’s troubled childhood, and a more nuanced examination of the future celebrity cannibal as he unsuccessfully tries to keep his budding homicidal desires in check.
