More than two decades after he was sentenced to 957 years in jail for murdering 17 people, Jeffrey Dahmer remains, thankfully, America’s most notorious serial killer. Now, a new documentary from director Chris James Thompson called The Jeffrey Dahmer Files details the crimes of the so-called “Milwaukee Cannibal” using archive footage and interviews with, amongst others, one of the lead detectives on the Dahmer case and the killer’s next door neighbor. (Thompson has committed to donating any profits from the film to The Milwaukee Community Service Corps, a non-profit vocational training organization.)
The Jeffrey Dahmer Files debuts theatrically at New York’s IFC Center on February 15 and will also be available on VOD. You can exclusively check out the film’s new poster below.
