The series “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” will premiere on Wednesday, September 21 on Netflix. The relatives of the victims of this serial killer, convicted of 16 murders, are furious.

How far can the fascination with serial killers be exerted? In any case, not until doing a series of it in Netflixaccording to some relatives of Jeffrey Dahmer’s victims.

Directed by Ryan Murphy Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story returns in 10 episodes to the journey of the serial killer. Nicknamed the Milwaukee Cannibal, Jeffrey Dahmer was convicted of 16 murders whose victims were mostly gay men and men of color. Between 1978 and 1991, when he was furious, the serial killer kept “memories” of his victims by dismembering them.

I don’t tell anyone what to watch, I know the true crime media is huge, but if you’re really curious about the victims, my family (the Isbells) are mad at this show. It is to re-traumatize again and again, and for what? How many movies/shows/documentaries do we need?

“Bring the trauma over and over again”

Acts of extreme barbarism that the relatives of the victims do not want to see again. “It is difficult to turn the page” laments an LGBT activist from the chain fox, who crossed paths with the serial killer and some of his victims, working in a gay bar in the city. A mixed feeling also shared by Errol Lindsey’s cousin, one of the murdered men. “I know true crime is a hit right now, but if you’re interested in victims, my family is mad at this show. Relive the trauma over and over again, and for what? How many movies/series/documentaries do we have?” “We need” he said in a tweet.

A movie about the life of Jeffrey Dahmer had already been brought to the screen in 2002 and then in 2017, with Anne Heche playing the killer’s mother.
