The other day we revealed the poster art for the upcoming documentary THE JEFFERY DAHMER FILES and tonight along comes the first official trailer for the project.
I don’t know what it is about serial killers but folks are just freaking fascinated with them. I watched a Bio channel presentation the other night on Dahmer, just plain disturbing.
So, back to this fiick. Here’s the official synopsis:
βWhat drives a seemingly mundane man to commit a series of acts so heinous that it captured the attention of a horrified nation? In the summer of 1991 Jeffrey Dahmer was arrested in Milwaukee and sentenced to 957 years in prison for killing 17 people and dismembering their bodies. The Jeffrey Dahmer Files explores this Midwestern city by meeting those surrounding Dahmer during and after his hidden spree. Recollections from Milwaukee Medical Examiner Jeffrey Jentzen, Police Detective Patrick Kennedy, and neighbor Pamela Bass are interwoven with archival footage and everyday scenes from Dahmerβs life, working collectively to disassemble the facade of an ordinary man leading an ordinary existence.β
IFC has picked up distribution and first on the release slate is a short theatrical run which will take place on Feb. 15th. I’m sure a VOD and Blu-ray release will quickly follow.
Here’s that trailer:
