Explore the life story of the Milwaukee serial killer whose ghoulish crimes shocked the entire world as filmmaker James Thompson takes viewers into the twisted world of Jeffrey Dahmer. In July of 1991, Dahmer was arrested after one of his intended victims made a daring escape. In the days and months that followed, newspapers around the world offered shocking accounts of necrophilia and cannibalism committed by a madman who had slowly succumbed to his darkest desires. When Dahmer's two-week trial came to an end, the court found him sane, and guilty on 15 counts of murder. In a state without capital punishment, his sentence was as stiff as many had expected: 15 life terms for a total of 957 years in prison. In this film, Thompson paints a vivid portrait of a monster in human skin as he contrasts depictions of Dahmer's everyday life against interviews with everyone from his former neighbor Pamela Bass to Police Detective Patrick Kennedy and Medical Examiner Jeffrey Jentzen. He result is a documentary with the power to get under the skin of even the most jaded true crime fanatic.
