In a few weeks, IFC will release what appears to be the definitive look at one of America's most notorious serial killers with THE JEFFREY DAHMER FILES, a documentary about the days leading up to and following the madman's arrest. (There is also some reenactments for dramatic effect.) Today we're sharing the film's poster and trailer, the latter of which is courtesy of Twitch.net.
In 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 is a documentary that explores the city of Milwaukee by meeting those surrounding Dahmer during and after his hidden spree. Recollections from Milwaukee Medical Examiner Jeffrey Jentzen, Police Detective Patrick Kennedy, and neighbor Pamela Bass are interwoven with archival footage and everyday scenes from Dahmerís life, working collectively to disassemble the facade of an ordinary man leading an ordinary existence.
THE JEFFREY DAHMER FILES will receive a limited theatrical release in the U.S. on February 15, and will also be available via various Video On Demand platforms.
