With just three weeks to go until its UK release, Altitude Film Distribution has unveiled a UK poster and trailer for writer-director Marc Meyers’ upcoming adaptation of Derf Backderf’s critically acclaimed graphic novel My Friend Dahmer which stars Ross Lynch as the notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer alongside Anne Heche, Vincent Kartheiser, Dallas Roberts, and Alex Wolff; check them out here…
Jeff Dahmer (Ross Lynch, Disney Channel’s ‘Austin & Ally’) is an awkward teenager who collects roadkill. It’s the end of his junior year and he’s practically invisible. His family life (Anne Heche as Joyce Dahmer) is coming undone. He fixates on a neighborhood jogger (Vincent Kartheiser, ‘Mad Men’) who routinely passes by his house. By the start of senior year, he acts out, throwing epileptic-like fits in the halls. His goofball antics win over a group of band-nerds who form The Dahmer Fan Club headed by Backderf (Alex Wolff, Nickelodeon’s ‘The Naked Brothers Band’). This camaraderie can’t mask his growing depravity as approaching graduation Jeff spirals further out of control
My Friend Dahmer is set for release on June 1st in the UK.
