'Jeffrey Dahmer Files' an unusual take on serial killer trope
Mesmerizing and haunting, "The Jeffrey Dahmer Files" is an inside-out serial killer movie lacking in gore or cheap psychology and made in part for those who think they never want to see another serial killer movie. A hybrid of documentary and fiction, the film is directed by Milwaukee-based Chris James Thompson in his feature debut. Rather than indulging in exploitation kicks, the film engages more with Dahmer's effect on the community.
