Jeff Dahmer 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 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. 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. We fear one of his friends is next.
