Evan Peters' most despicable role yet in the Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story trailer ...

Evan Peters plays Jeffrey Dahmer in Netflix's Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, a true-crime series about the serial killer. (Yes, that's the real title of the show.)

Dahmer is one of the most notorious serial murderers in history, having murdered 17 people between 1978 and 1991; he also dismembered his victims and engaged in necrophilia and cannibalism. Here's the synopsis:

Jeffrey Dahmer killed seventeen innocent people between 1978 and 1991. The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is a series that investigates these unconscionable crimes, centered around the underserved victims and their communities affected by systemic racism and institutional failures of the police that allowed one of America's most notorious serial killers to continue his murderous plot in plain view for more than a decade.

Peters has made a number of appearances in the Marvel Universe, including a surprise appearance in WandaVision.

Netflix is showing Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, which also stars Niecy Nash, Richard Jenkins, and Molly Ringwald, on October 21. The three-part docuseries Conversations with a Killer: The Jeffrey Dahmer Tapes will air on October 7th.
