The Secret Life: Jeffrey Dahmer Story Review


Based on the life of notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, who murdered 17 men and ate many of them before he was caught in 1991.

This is a fairly straightforward accounting of the life story of one of the most infamous serial killers in the history of the world. "The Secret Life" Jeffrey Dahmer touches on all the highlights of Dahmer’s 14-year murder spree. Hatchet dismemberments, power drill brain surgery, vats of industrial strength acid, it’s all here for your viewing entertainment as you’re led through a look inside the head of one of the most twisted individuals ever to walk the earth. Dahmer lookalike Carl Crew is serviceable in the lead role and manages to capture the unemotional, disconnected from reality fashion with which Dahmer carried out his work. 

AHHHHHH! BORING!!! Actually, if you have researched Dahmer as much as I have, this movie is slightly interesting and true to the story. But the low quality of the filming and the horrible acting is unbearable. It’s kinda interesting to see how Dahmer killed these people, but not really. It’s pretty boring.
