We have another look at Evan Peters as Jeffrey Dahmer, and it’s just as haunting as the last one.
While the first trailer aimed to show how Dahmer lured and killed his victims, this new glimpse at Ryan Murphy’s upcoming Netflix series “Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” gives us an idea of just how many times the notorious serial killer was able to evade authorities.
The trailer opens with Dahmer driving down the road with giant, black trash bags in the back seat of his car. When he’s pulled over by an officer, he says that the bags are full of clippings from the yard. He’s sent home and, though we don’t see what’s inside the bags, the ominous tone leads us to believe it’s another victim.
The video then cuts to Dahmer’s neighbor, played by Niecy Nash, who is begging authorities to come investigate because she believes someone is being “hurt or killed” next door. In another scene, Dahmer faces a judge who tells him it’s his lucky day, because he’ll be getting off the hook for one of his many crimes.
As we now know, and as the rest of the trailer revealed, Dahmer did not stop killing. “I knew, but nobody heard me,” Nash says at the end of the trailer, which you can watch in full above.
Here’s the logline for the series:
Between 1978 and 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer gruesomely took the lives of seventeen innocent victims. DAHMER – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is a series that exposes these unconscionable crimes, centered around the underserved victims and their communities impacted by the systemic racism and institutional failures of the police that allowed one of America’s most notorious serial killers to continue his murderous spree in plain sight for over a decade.
In addition to Peters and Nash, “Dahmer” also stars Richard Jenkins, Molly Ringwald and Michael Learned.
The series was created by Murphy and Ian Brennan and is executive produced by Peters, as well as Alexis Martin Woodall, Eric Kovtun, Janet Mock and Carl Franklin. Rashad Robinson is a consulting producer.
“Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” debuts Sept. 21 on Netflix.
