Evan Peters has left fans predicting they will have nightmares watching his portrayal of Jeffrey Dahmer in Netflix’s upcoming biopic series.
That American Horror Story Star will play the serial killer in Ryan Murphy’s Dahmer – Monsters: The Story of Jeffrey Dahmer.
The series will examine how Dahmer, considered one of the world’s worst killers and convicted of murdering 16 boys and young men between 1978 and 1991, evaded arrest by the police for so long.
On Friday (September 16th) the first trailer for dahmer was published. It shows Evans’ Dahmer taking men back to his apartment while his neighbor (Niecy Nash) complains about the smell and the sound of screams coming from his house.
The trailer caused a shock reaction from viewers, who said Peters looked “perfect” like the serial killer.
“He looks a little too much like him,” wrote one Twitter user.
“Oh my god he bears an uncanny resemblance to him,” commented another, adding that they found the resemblance “disturbing.”
One tweet read, “Welp, this trailer officially gave me nightmares!”
“Give him an Emmy already!” commented another. “It’s right in his wheelhouse! He played similar roles in AHS, great actor.”
Dahmer was known in the media as the “Milwaukee Cannibal” or “Milwaukee Monster” because many of his later murders involved necrophilia or cannibalism.
While diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, schizotypal personality disorder, and personality disorder, he was found legally sane at his trial, where he was sentenced to life in prison. In 1994, he was beaten to death by a fellow inmate.
