The Netflix streaming service is having huge success with the series Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story (read our review HERE), so the upcoming docuseries Conversations with a Killer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes is probably going to be a success for them as well. That show will be available to watch as of October 7th, and a trailer for it is now online. You can check it out in the embed above.

Conversations with a Killer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes is the third of a series of Conversations with a Killer shows, which started with Ted Bundy and continued with John Wayne Gacy. Here’s the information on this one:

When Milwaukee police entered the apartment of 31-year-old Jeffrey Dahmer in 1991, they weren’t prepared for what they’d find. From a freezer full of human heads to decomposing body parts, the discovery amounted to the grisly personal museum of a sadistic killer. Dahmer quickly confessed to sixteen murders in Wisconsin over the span of four years, plus another murder in Ohio — but the most shocking revelation involved acts of necrophilia and cannibalism.

Back for a third iteration, Conversations with a Killer uses never-before-heard audio interviews between Dahmer and his defense team to answer the big question: Why was Dahmer, who had been convicted of sexual assault of a minor in 1988, able to avoid suspicion and detection from police as he stalked Milwaukee’s gay scene for victims, many of whom were people of color? The three-part docuseries not only delves into the killer’s warped psyche but also examines police accountability through a modern-day lens. As seen in the trailer above, the upcoming docuseries highlights interviews with those who worked closely with Dahmer, including his lawyer Wendy Patrickus, during his high-profile case. 

I don’t generally like to delve as far into the stories of real-life serial killers as these shows go, but I live with someone who does, so I end up watching them as well. The first two Conversations with a Killer series were interesting and disturbing, and I’m sure Conversations with a Killer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes will follow suit.
