Audience Reviews for The Jeffrey Dahmer Files
Interesting experimental documentary about serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer uses recreation and archival footage to tell the events of the capture of the depraved killer. Although not very long, The Jeffrey Dahmer Profile is an interesting film, and it is one that is shocking from start to finish because Dahmer's crimes were despicable. The cast do a good job in the reaction parts, and some of the footage used, is quite disturbing, but necessary in order to tell a broad story of Dahmer's crimes. Viewers interested in the subject will surely find this a fascinating viewing experience, and one that you won't forget. The Jeffrey Dahmer Profile is not for everyone, but to those interested in the subject, this is a must watch. As a documentary, the film works well, but it's far from be8ing a standout in the genre. I would say that this is a good movie, but considering its run time, it doesn't really go in depth about the subject of Dahmer. Fo9r a short film, it gives you an idea of what happened, but it does feel a little light. The recreations are well done, and work well, but a straight forward documentary would have been better. Since this one recreates most of the events for the duration of the film, I think that this film could have benefited from a more realistic approach to9 the events by documenting the facts with actual interviews from those involved in the case. The film works to a certain degree, but in the long run it could have been a much better movie as well. As it is, it's good, but it could have been better as well.
Dull, uninsightful. I hate coming down on it because of the interviews with real people, but there are too few interviews, the presentation is awful, but worst of all there is no insight in this documentary. It's not even creepy despite the horrific material. How did they make Dahmer boring!?
A riveting and quietly unsettling blend of interviews and fictionalized re-enactments of his daily life (not the murders), The Jeffrey Dahmer Files takes a look at the quiet neighbor whose apartment became an abattoir of horrors.
