THE JEFFREY DAHMER FILES (NR)
IFC MIDNIGHT (2012)
Starring: Andrew Swant, Pamela Bass, Jeffrey Jentzen, Pat Kennedy & more.
This is not an actual movie, but done more like a documentary film. This is actually an experimental
type documentary that uses archival footage, interviews, re-enactments & fictionalized scenarios to
tell the story of Jeffrey Dahmer and the people around him. For those of you that have been living in
a cave for the last twenty plus years and don't know who Jeffrey Dahmer is, he was a serial killer.
The film focuses on the city of Milwaukee and it's people in 1991, the year Jeffrey Dahmer was
arrested. He was sentenced to 957 years for killing and dismembering seventeen people. The film
talks to the actual detective who entered his apartment and made the arrest, his neighbor who had
been in his apartment, been friends with him and even eaten food he made for her, and the examiner
who studied and examine the evidence. This is one of the worst topics for a film because it's all based
on actual events and an actual serial killer. The most horrific things are the things that are real and
this was one of the worst serial killers in history. Some people may not like this because it's actual
events and some might not because it's a serial killer, but most Horror movie fans seem to like serial
killer stuff that is real as well as fantasy! If you do, then this is well worth watching!!!
