Dahmer (2005) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
One of the most notorious serial killers in America was Wisconsin’s Jeffrey Dahmer. Dahmer’s exploits included killing 15 boys and resorting to cannibalism on their corpses. This biographical drama starring Jeremy Renner (TV’s ZOE, DUNCAN, JACK & JANE) does not focus on the grisly details of the murders, rather it sets out to comprehend an alienated man who struggles with his own sexuality until driven disturbingly over his head. Writer/director David Jacobson has constructed a film very much in contrast to other Dahmer portrayals in its compassion for the deranged mind. The film uses flashbacks and very few characters to give a history of the serial killer‘s upbringing and details as to what drove him over the edge. The masterful use of time and a strong cast were additional tools Jabobson used to elevate this horrific drama. Featuring Bruce Davison and Artel Kayaru.
