Reviews:
"The world may never tire of being fascinated with serial killers, but MY FRIEND DAHMER avoids exploitation often enough to forge its own perceptive, tense, character-driven path." - 11/02/2017 Los Angeles Times


"[E]xcellent and disturbing....Ross Lynch is eerie and impressive as Dahmer..." - 11/03/2017 RogerEbert.com


3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] warped wonder of a movie that takes twisted to areas few have investigated." - 11/02/2017 Rolling Stone


"The acting is excellent throughout, and Ross Lynch in the role of Dahmer elicits genuine sympathy for an increasingly lost but not yet monstrous soul." - 11/02/2017 New York Times


"At times, Meyers and Lynch bring a sensitivity to the character that gives little moments impressive weight..." -- Grade: B - 11/01/2017 A.V. Club


"The film adaptation is a good one, and largely faithful, as it plumbs Dahmer’s dysfunctional home life for explanations without making excuses. It excels at capturing the era..." - 11/09/2017 Chicago Sun-Times


3 stars out of 5 -- "Dahmer was diagnosed with multiple disorders. But he was certainly starved of the right kind of attention, and this film suggests that his compensation for that had destructive results." - 05/29/2018 Empire


4 stars out of 5 -- "It makes for something that ends up being sadder, weirder, more boring -- but more convincing -- than the average serial killer movie." - 06/03/2018 The Guardian
