The synopsis of Dahmer’s look at life, murders and other lurid acts reads as follows:
“When Milwaukee police entered the apartment of 31-year-old Jeffrey Dahmer in July 1991, they discovered a serial killer’s grisly personal museum: a freezer filled with human heads, skulls, bones and other remains in various states of decomposition and monitor. Dahmer quickly confessed to sixteen murders in Wisconsin over the previous four years, plus one more in Ohio in 1978, as well as unimaginable acts of necrophilia and cannibalism.
Dahmer’s victims weren’t just killed; they were subjected to experiments, including being turned into “zombies” for Dahmer to perform sexual acts, not knowing anything else.
Moving on, the premise of the confession tapes also notes that Dahmer was convicted of sexual assault of a minor in 1988, making it hard to understand how he avoided getting caught for so long. Viewers will hear from Dahmer, his legal defense team, psychologists and others involved in the case.
“The discovery shocked the nation and stunned the local community, who were outraged that such a vicious killer had been allowed to operate within their city for so long. Why was Dahmer, who had been convicted of sexual assault of a minor in 1988, able to avoid police suspicion and detection as he stalked Milwaukee’s gay scene for victims, many of whom were people of color? The third in a series from director Joe Berlinger (CWAK: The Ted Bundy Tapes, CWAK: The John Wayne Gacy Tapes), this three-part documentary features never-before-heard audio interviews between Dahmer and his defense team, delving into his warped psyche as you answer these open questions about police responsibility through a modern lens. Featuring fresh interviews with investigative journalists, prosecutors, psychologists, and friends and family of the victims, Conversations with a Killer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes sheds new light on the intersection of race, class, sexuality, and surveillance that gave rise to one of the more noticeable. 20th century killers.
