If you're interested in Dahmer's early life, check out the graphic novel of My Friend Dahmer. It is a quick read and much more interesting than this movie adaptation.

Creepy. Skin crawling. Scary. Pure evil.

Not nearly as good as Derf's graphic novel of the same title. I'm not a graphic novel fan, but I read the engrossing, beautifully drawn "My Friend Dahmer" in one sitting. The DVD was boring enough that I turned it off halfway through.

Excellent, 5-star movie. It is honest throughout. The acting and the script are very authentic.

The film is so realistic that it reminded me of another highly authentic movie about a serial killer: "Henry: Portrait of A Serial Killer." The two titles could be viewed together as studies in pathology.

The director pulls his punches at several points so that we do not have to witness some horrific scenes, and the film benefits from this.

Not worth your time.

Perhaps my expectations were too high to begin with...but this move really seems to plod on. Some parts did not quite make sense and the pacing was a little too slow. It seems the director took a think script and tried stretching it to fit a full length movie. The result is a movie with more potential than actual impact. A bit of a disappointment.

Interesting view of the early years before a young man becomes a serial killer. The film lacks psychological information as to what really made him become a killer.

Very similar to the Graphic Novel it was based on.

Such a boring movie. I wasn't even going to watch the whole thing, but I kept hoping it might get better. It Never did. It was so bad, I'm not even sure why they made it.

It was.... ok.
His mom is portrayed as a wing nut and his dad as trying to help him. Good acting though.
