Jeffrey Dahmer: The Monster Within

Published on 5th February 2016 by

Jeffrey Dahmer: The Monster Within is a 1996 made-for-TV documentary exploring the life and crimes of one of America’s most psychotic serial killers. Dahmer raped, murdered, and dismembered at least seventeen boys between 1978 and 1991 and in some cases ate their flesh. He was sentenced to 16 life sentences but was beaten to death by a fellow prison inmate a few years into his sentence.

This film is not for the faint-hearted as it contains photos from the crime scenes and very graphic descriptions of his gruesome crimes. It also uses archived footage of interviews with Dahmer, as well as interviews with his parents. This is one of a number of documentaries about Dahmer, consider also watching The Jeffrey Dahmer Files and Jeffrey Dahmer: Confessions of a Serial Killer.


There have been several books written about Dahmer and his crimes, the best selling of them all is The Jeffrey Dahmer Story: An American Nightmare, written by Donald A. Davis and published in 1991 and available in paperback.
