My Friend Dahmer is being released on DVD by Altitude on 30th July.
Already available digitally, My Friend Dahmer is directed and written by Marc Meyers and stars Ross Lynch (Austin & Ally), Anne Heche (I Know What You Did Last Summer), Dallas Roberts (Mayhem), Alex Wolff (The Naked Brothers Band) and Vincent Kartheiser (Mad Men).
Based on Derf Backderf’s 2012 graphic novel of the same name and Meyer’s 2014 Black List script, My Friend Dahmer tells the true story of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer during his high school years.
Jeffrey Dahmer murdered seventeen men and boys in the Midwest United States between 1978 and 1991 before being captured and incarcerated. This is the story before that story. Jeff Dahmer (Lynch) is an awkward teenager who collects roadkill. It’s the end of his junior year and he’s practically invisible.
His family life (Heche as Joyce Dahmer) is coming undone. He fixates on a neighborhood jogger (Kartheiser) who routinely passes by his house. By the start of senior year, he acts out, throwing epileptic-like fits in the halls. His goofball antics win over a group of band-nerds who form The Dahmer Fan Club headed by Backderf (Wolff). This camaraderie can’t mask his growing depravity as approaching graduation Jeff spirals further out of control.
