Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is a chilling Netflix series about one of history’s most notorious serial killers.
American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy and actor Evan Peters have teamed up again for the dramatisation of this horrifying true crime story.
The new horror series Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmeren Story is now available to watch on Netflix.
Here’s everything you need to know about the series.
What is Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story about?
Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is set between 1978 and 1991, during which time the infamous murderer took the lives of 17 victims.
He murdered and dismembered his victims – men and boys – over the course of 13 years.
He’s infamous for his heinous and gruesome crimes, which involved necrophilia, cannibalism and preserving body parts.
Unlike most true crime series, Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is set to expose these horrific crimes from the perspective of his victims.
It also shows how the systematic racism and failure of the police allowed Jeffrey Dahmer to murder in plain sight for over a decade.

After witnessing some strange behaviour from her neighbour, Glenda tried to warn the police…
But they didn’t listen to her.
When Jeffrey found out about her complaint, he offered Glenda a sandwich that he had prepared for her.
Just don’t ask what was in the sandwich!
He then tells Glenda: “You’re just like my mum, telling on me when I ain’t done nothing wrong.”
Glenda Cleveland was a real neighbour who tried to warn the police of Jeffrey’s questionable behaviour.
