My Friend Dahmer

NOVA EXCLUSIVE! 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 (Ross Lynch) is an awkward teenager who collects roadkill. It’s the end of his junior year and he’s practically invisible. His family life is coming undone. He fixates on a neighborhood jogger (Vincent 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 Derf Backderf (Alex Wolff).

This camaraderie can’t mask his growing depravity. Approaching graduation Jeff spirals further out of control. He retreats into alcohol. He stalks the jogger. He devolves into dissecting small animals, then a neighbor’s dog.

Marc Meyers’s MY FRIEND DAHMER is the haunting, sad, funny, true story of Jeffrey Dahmer in high school, based on Derf Backderf's critically acclaimed 2012 graphic novel of the same name and Meyers’s own 2014 Black List script.
