As fans of the horror genre we certainly love our slashers, killers and mass murdering madmen, but it is the real life psychos that prove to be the most frightening of them all. While we would never celebrate the crimes of these sick bastards, it is always interesting to be able to look at what makes them tick. That's why we're looking forward to checking out the upcoming IFC documentary THE JEFFREY DAHMER FILES which profiles one of the most imfamous killers of all time by using archival footage, interviews and even fictional storytelling to illustrate the events surrounding Dahmer's arrest in 1991. Just a couple of weeks back we shared with you the chilling poster and first trailer to the doc and today we have a clip from the film that will make you stop and think the next time someone offers you something to eat. Check it out below.
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 Dahmer’s 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.
