Altitude Films launches UK trailer & poster for ‘My Friend Dahmer’

Altitude Films has released the official UK trailer and poster artwork for Marc Meyers‘ forthcoming biographical drama, My Friend Dahmer, out in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on 1 June, 2018.

Based on the critically-acclaimed 2012 graphic novel of the same name by cartoonist John “Derf” Backderf (who had been friends with Dahmer in high school in the 1970s), and Meyers‘ own 2014 Black List script, the film stars Ross Lynch, Alex Wolff, Dallas Roberts, and Anne Heche.

Jeffrey Dahmer murdered seventeen men and boys in the Midwest United States between 1978 and 1991 before being captured and incarcerated. This is the story before that story.

Dahmer (Lynch) 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) 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 (Wolff). This camaraderie can’t mask his growing depravity as approaching graduation Jeff spirals further out of control
