Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Dahmer

Written and directed by David Jacobson in 2002. This film presents exclusively the point of view of Jeffrey Dahmer, a serial killer responsible for the death of at least 17 people between 1986 and 1991 in the U.S.A. Dahmer is a perverse homosexual who can only have sex with a man if this latter is under the influence of sleeping pills or if he's already dead. His first victim was a young man, met perchance, who turned down his advances.

Dahmer lured his next victims in his apartment by promising money to them if they agreed to be photographed. Dahmer's technique is always the same one: he drugs his victims before murdering them. The number of the murders greatly increases when Dahmer patronizes a gay bar located close to his apartment, he then killed seven times the same year.
