Dahmer -- Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story

Critics Consensus

While Monster is seemingly self-aware of the peril in glorifying Jeffrey Dahmer, creator Ryan Murphy's salacious style nevertheless tilts this horror story into the realm of queasy exploitation.

Audience Reviews for Dahmer -- Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story: Limited Series

    Amazing show. My complaint is that I felt like it was advertised as giving a voice to dahmer's victims, but then decided to victimize dahmer himself by trying to justify his actions through his hard childhood.

    Not glorifying Dahmer. This was actual facts of a sadistic cold blooded killer and simple history of his crimes. If you don't like documentaries on serial killers...this won't be for you.

    This is a storytelling and acting masterpiece. One of the arguments so far is about determining who the star of the show is between Evan Peters and Niecy Nash. We don't have to pick one over the other. The show wouldn't be the storytelling masterpiece it is without either of them. Their roles and acting prowess complement each other. Evan Peters' portrayal of Dahmer's monstrous nature wouldn't be as meaningful to us without Niecy Nash's portrayal of Glenda Cleveland's relatable humanity. Niecy Nash's portrayal of Glenda Cleveland is our point of reference in determining the extent of Dahmer's evil nature and the racial biases that exist in society on our paths to justice. To borrow a concept from linguistics, one could say that the languages of Evan Peters' and Niecey Nash's portrayals of their characters are mutually intelligible.

    I LOVEE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT SUCH AN AMAZING SHOW, I LOVED THE ACTING AND OMG I JUST CANT GET ENOUGH.

    Excellent show. Worth the watch.

    The boiling blood as you watch the opening, deep down you know whats gonna happen and you dont want it to happen... Its crazy. The chilling on your spine whenever Peter Evans is on the screen, its insane how well he managed to play this role. Atleast for me this much more terrifying than any horror movie. Great tv show.

    Excellent show with an outstanding performances, overall tone and on point visuals. I love its focus on the actual victims which gave this whole series very bitter, sad feeling, real emotional impact... I can't get some of the scenes out of my head. Critics are obviously too concerned with other questions that aren't related to the actual quality of the show which is unfair... Their job is to recognise a quality filmmaking and eventually recommend it and this time they are failing miserably. This could be the first show that carefully avoided glorification of the main antagonist but all I read in reviewe from these so called experts are concerns about exploitation and glorifying Dahmer... Did we watch the same show?

    Watching scenes with Dahmer in them was interesting. Watching the long and drawn out scenes of the victims families was very boring. Could have been 3 episodes.

    It's really hard to review things like this as positivity can be taken out of context due to the subject matter. If you're like me and are fascinated by true crime, and what makes serial killers do what they do, you will really enjoy this. I'd probably go as far as saying this is the best one I've watched that does just enough to get across how terrible his crimes were without you having to hide behind your hands. It never actually shows you anything grotesque but cleverly uses sound and props to suggest what is happening/has happened. Does a great job of showing you the progression of situations that may have contributed to his horrid crimes. Acting is brilliant by all, and (IMO) respectively portrayed the victims as people rather than just Dahmers victims and delved deeper into some of their backgrounds and how they ended up crossing paths with this monster. Probably one of the best serial killer biopics I've watched, Evan Peters should get an award for it.

    If you're a fan of creepy horrific shit then this series is for you. This was done very well. I didnt realize Molly Ringwald was in this until I watched the last episode and the credits. All the acting was perfect.
