“One of America’s most notorious serial killers largely told from the point of view of Jeffrey Dahmer’s victims, and dives deeply into the police incompetence and apathy that allowed the Wisconsin native to go on a multiyear killing spree. The series dramatizes at least 10 instances where Dahmer was almost apprehended but ultimately let go. The series also is expected to touch on white privilege, as Dahmer, a clean-cut, good-looking white guy, was repeatedly given a free pass by cops as well as by judges who were lenient when he had been charged with petty crimes.”
The series follows the killings of noted serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, played by Evan Peters, and is presented from the perspective of his victims. Evan Peters played a character dubbed “the master” in American Horror Story: Hotel, where he mentored Jeffery Dahmer and several other famous serial killers.
Dahmer is seen finding his prey and hunting his victims. His neighbours also notice how they hear screams from his apartment and one lady is incredibly suspicious. His victims, their hunt and the bloodshed, all are depicted in this upcoming limited series.
