One of the most intriguing films of 2017 has to be My Friend Dahmer. The trailer for the film has just been released.
Based on the 2012 graphic novel of the same name by John “Derf” Backderf, the film covers the friendship the cartoonist had with the future serial killer while they were both in high school.
The actor playing Jeffrey Dahmer will look familiar to anyone who child watches the Disney Channel. He’s Ross Lynch, who played Austin on the network’s sitcom Austin & Ally. Dahmer is certainly a change of pace role for the young man, but based on what we see in the trailer, he seems to do a pretty good job switching those gears.
The film, which was written and directed by Marc Meyers, has been making the rounds of the festival circuit and has a release date of November 3, 2017. Whether that will be a limited or wide release is not yet known.
