Movie Info

This is an exploitive documentary of the infamous Milwaukee mass murderer. Though Jeffrey Dahmer was considered a pervert-picking up young boys, getting them drunk and stoned and then having sex-no one suspected him of murder, despite the stench that emanated from his tiny apartment. When he was finally caught, it was revealed that his apartment was a chamber of horrors, where he tortured his young victims to death, then sliced up the bodies and stored the parts in his freezer, among other places. You remembr the headlines, so please don't ask us to go into any more detail. The Secret Life was produced several years before Dahmer was himself murdered in prison. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for The Secret Life: Jeffrey Dahmer

Possibly one of the sickest films of it's genre, covering the facts of the true life story of the serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. Interms of the actual film it was pretty porrly acted and even felt a bit dated.

You may find a strong stomach will help you on this one, purely because it's related to true events, but it's certainly not for everyone.

A brutal depiction of the Dahmer story, more than most films portray. There are a lot of production problems with continuity of the lighting and/or film stock, as well as bad acting and corny narration. But any big Dahmer fan will enjoy this film for the story. There is some shocking scenes and a little bit of hardcore gore to please horror fans. Worth owning if you can find a cheap VHS tape. I got it for 99 cents on
