  • In another description, Netflix marked the Dahmer series as ominous and dark. It covers Crime, Drama, Social Issues, and Horror genres.
  • If you are asking us if it is safe for teens, unfortunately, it’s not. At this point, we advise you not to tag your minors along if you plan to binge-watch the true crime series. There are many disturbing scenes that we’re pretty sure you wouldn’t want your children to see.

All about Netflix’s Dahmer

The series consists of ten episodes. According to the Netflix description, the series “examines the gruesome crimes Jeffrey Dahmer committed and the systematic failures that enabled him to kill 17 teen boys and men”
  • Netflix’s limited series from Ryan Murphy stars Evan Peters (pretty sure you know him when you watched X-Men and the American Horror Story among others) as Jeffrey Dahmer.
  • To shed light on the brutal killings, the series was told from the points of view of his victims. Fair warning that this isn’t for the faint of heart.

Check out these tweets talking about Netflix’s Dahmer:

  • User @alexissTyler also laid out the story of Dahmer in a Twitter thread, so if you don’t want (or are unable) to watch, but you’re still curious about the show, check it out here.

  • Lastly, Rita Isbell, the sister of one of the victims of Dahmer talked about Netflix not reaching out to them about the series. It would’ve been out of respect and sensitivity to reach out to the families of the victims. Unfortunately, Netflix didn’t do that, and just went ahead and premiered Dahmer.

  • Going back to teens who are looking for something new on Netflix, you may want to choose other shows or films that have fewer to no graphic/gory scenes. Maybe binge-watch a few K-dramas, just like the recently released Little Women, or maybe the action film ATHENA. Cartoons are also available if you are a fan of it!

That’s all we have. Happy binge-watching weekend!
