With 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, this film may not be your typical holiday fare, but the darkness of winter also beckons…
Based on the 2012 graphic novel of the same name by cartoonist John "Derf" Backderf, who was friends in high school with one of America’s most infamous serial killers, Jeffrey Dahmer. This is the story before that story. Jeff Dahmer (Disney Channel's Ross Lynch) is an awkward teenager struggling to make it through high school with a family life in ruins. He collects roadkill, fixates on a neighborhood jogger (Vincent Kartheiser, "Mad Men"), and copes with his unstable mother (Anne Heche) and well-intentioned father (Dallas Roberts). Meyers said of making the film, "The story is discomforting, that's just part and parcel of what the book is. Obviously [Jeffrey Dahmer] was unique, but there are lots of kids who fall between the cracks or off the edge of a cliff and end tragically. I think it will be uncomfortable, but tough. That's just part of the story."
