The first Jeffrey Dahmer movie trailer is here, and yikes

The early life of gay serial killer/cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer has officially been given the Hollywood treatment.

Dahmer murdered and ate a total of 17 men and boys across the Midwest United States between 1978 and 1991 before eventually being captured, incarcerated, and murdered in prison. He would become one of America’s most infamous serial killers.

My Friend Dahmer is based on the 2012 graphic novel by John “Derf” Backderf, a childhood friend of the serial-killer-and-cannibal-to-be. The film claims to be “the story before that story,” and follows around a young Jeffrey (played by Disney Channel star Ross Lynch) during his awkward teenage years.

After premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival back in April, My Friend Dahmer is expected to hit theaters later this year.
