With the premiere of Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, a crime biography series created by Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan, just one day away, the final trailer has released.
There had been no hints or teases about Evan Peters’ portrayal of the Milwaukee Cannibal, a notorious serial killer, in the months leading up to the film’s release, other than a single image. As last week came to a close, a tidal wave of fresh details began washing our way, including an official trailer and interviews with Peters and his co-star, Niecy Nash.
The trailer released today provides an even more disturbing and terrifying glimpse into the life of the man who suspected of killing at least 17 people between 1978 and 1991. Aside from Peters’ terrifying metamorphosis into Dahmer, it provides a clearer look at Nash’s personality.
Peters revealed during his interview with Netflix that Murphy and Brennan will not delve too deeply into the gory details in order to focus on the victims and the lives destroyed by Dahmer.
Instead, they want to show how Dahmer able to prey on other gay men and people of colour for so long without caught, knowing that law enforcement would less likely to act.
Dahmer is among the most infamous serial killers ever for his 17 murders between 1978 and 1991, during which time he also dismembered his victims and practised necrophilia and cannibalism. Monster:
Between 1978 and 1991, American serial killer and sex offender Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer, aka the Milwaukee Cannibal or the Milwaukee Monster, killed and dismembered seventeen male victims. Later killings often included necrophilia, cannibalism, and the preservation of body parts, usually the skeleton.
Dahmer found to legally competent to stand trial despite having diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, schizotypal personality disorder, and a psychotic disorder.
On February 17, 1992, he found guilty of fifteen out of the sixteen murders he accused of committing in Wisconsin and given fifteen consecutive life sentences. After committing another murder in Ohio in 1978, Dahmer received his sixteenth life sentence.
Chris Scarver, a fellow inmate at the Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage, Wisconsin, beat Dahmer to death on November 28th, 1994.
On May 21, 1960, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Dahmer was born to Joyce Annette, an instructor for teletype machines, and Lionel Herbert Dahmer, a chemistry student and later research chemist at Marquette University.
While Lionel Dahmer could trace his roots to Germany and Wales, Joyce Dahmer could trace hers to Norway and Ireland.
It has suggested that Dahmer suffered from neglect as a baby. Although his mother known to be anxious, greedy for attention and pity, and argumentative with her husband and neighbours, other sources suggest that she doted on Dahmer as an infant and toddler.
Lionel’s university work kept him away from home as Dahmer began first grade, and his hypochondriacal, depressed wife made constant demands on his time when she was there. She reportedly tried to kill herself with Equanil once before.
Dahmer began amassing large insects like dragonflies and moths and the skeletons of small animals like chipmunks and squirrels from the woods surrounding his home, which covered an area of about 1.5 acres.
Inside the shack were a number of formaldehyde-preserved jars containing human bones.
Murder of Steven Hicks
Three weeks after receiving his diploma in 1978, Dahmer committed his first murder. Dahmer picked up an almost-19-year-old hitchhiker named Steven Mark Hicks on the 18th of June. Dahmer used the pretence of having a few drinks with him to get the young man to come over to his house.
Hicks, who was hitchhiking to a rock concert in Ohio’s Chippewa Lake Park, agreed to accompany Dahmer to his house because Dahmer promised to buy them “a few beers” since they would have the place to themselves.
Dahmer buried Hicks’ body in a shallow grave in his backyard, then returned several weeks later to strip the flesh from the bones.
He used acid to dissolve the flesh and then flushed the solution down the toilet; then he used a sledgehammer to crush the bones and threw them into the woods behind the family’s house.
Dahmer, who was living with his grandmother in West Allis at the time, met Steven Tuomi, a 25-year-old from Ontonagon, Michigan, at a bar on November 20, 1987.
He convinced Tuomi to accompany him to the Ambassador Hotel in Milwaukee, where he had rented a room for the night. Dahmer claims he didn’t intend to kill Tuomi, only to drug him and lie next to him while he looked all over his body.
The following morning, however, Dahmer discovered Tuomi lying on the bed beneath him, his chest “crushed in” and his body “black and blue” from bruises.
Dahmer’s forearm and both fists covered in bruises, and blood was dripping from the corner of his mouth. Dahmer told investigators he “could not believe this had happened” and that he had no recollection of killing Tuomi.
Dahmer bought a large suitcase and took Tuomi’s body to his grandmother’s house. A week later, he went back to the same spot and removed the head, limbs, and torso, filleted the bones, and then cut the flesh into manageable chunks.
After that, Dahmer bagged up the body parts and threw them away. His method involved placing the bones in a sheet and smashing them with a sledgehammer.
