The Jeffrey Dahmer Files

The Jeffrey Dahmer Files

Directed by Chris James Thompson

What drives a seemingly mundane man to commit a series of acts so heinous that it captured the attention of a horrified nation? In the summer of 1991 Jeffrey Dahmer was arrested in Milwaukee and sentenced to 957 years in prison for killing 17 people and dismembering their bodies. THE JEFFREY DAHMER FILES explores this Midwestern city by meeting those surrounding Dahmer during and after his hidden spree. Recollections, archival footage and everyday scenes from Dahmer’s life work collectively to disassemble the facade of an ordinary man leading an ordinary existence.

What drives a seemingly mundane man to commit a series of acts so heinous that it captured the attention of a horrified nation?

Cast: Andrew Swant, Pamela Bass, Jeffrey Jentzen

Excellent I remember a tv interview with Dahmer after the trial. The interviewer asked if he should be freed. Dahmer said that he should be executed, because if they freed him he’d just keep doing the same thing.
