TV Review: Dahmer (2022) (Thriller/True Crime)

10 episodes
Thriller/True Crime

Across more than a decade, 17 teen boys and young men were murdered by convicted killer Jeffrey Dahmer. How did he evade arrest for so long? (Synopsis)

I had only a vague general knowledge of Jeffrey Dahmer and his crimes, so I found this series interesting to learn more about his background and actions. The narrative cut and changed between time periods, but it was always clearly signposted what year we were in and where. Evan Peters gave a compelling performance in the role of the titular killer, and the supporting cast were also good. This is a fairly graphic show in terms of blood, violence and nudity, so it's not going to be for everyone. But it is a worthwhile watch for those interested in true crime stories. It gets 4 stars from me.
