Thompson does a commendable job of making his points without overstaying his welcome. Given a bigger budget and better resources, it would be very interesting to see his take on some other controversial cases.
Mesmerizing and haunting, "The Jeffrey Dahmer Files" is an inside-out serial killer movie, lacking in gore or cheap psychology and made in part for those who think they never want to see another serial killer movie.
I'm not sure that director and co-writer Chris James Thompson's film sheds any new light on why Dahmer committed his crimes, but I'm also not sure that anything is gained by trying to look too deeply into such a disordered personality.
