Films about real life serial killers are a popular sub-genre in horror. Whatever the fascination with them is, it seems that there’s often new ones coming out. Now, IFC films has picked up distribution for ‘The Jeffrey Dahmer Files’ which will receive a brief theatrical release on Feb 15th with a probable VOD and Blu-ray release soon after. Check out the trailer below..
“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 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.”
