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.

Really well done and interesting! I would definitely recommend it to any true crime or Dahmer fan.
Very good documentary it takes you into the whole case and what he did. Very well done
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.
I was 22 when this was happening. Interesting doc. on human behavior. So sad, but good doc.
