When Netflix goes dark, it does not spare the minutest details. The platform has been picking up on some grueling content, whether a work of fiction, a documentary, or a chilling mix of both. For those who find comfort in the idea of binging on Dexter or Dateline while stuffing pasta and sipping wine, be prepared for an elevation, as the streamer is here with a limited series on a wicked serial killer, Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story.
Bringing to life the psychotic killer Jeffrey Dahmer is the modern king of horror, Evan Peters. The 35-year-old is a male version of Sarah Paulson, giving you some spine-chilling performance through shows like American Horror Story, Mare of East Town, and American Animals. Some people are just gifted with the art of creating nightmares, but even his biggest fans weren’t ready for the actor’s transformation into Dahmer. Their jaw dropped at the new levels of creepiness that Evan skillfully exudes in this new role.
Fans shocked, concerned and uncomfortable seeing Evan Peters essay Dahmer on Netflix
Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is the new Netflix limited true crime-based drama series. Brought by creators Ryan Murphy, of American Horror Story, and Ian Brennan, who worked along with Murphy for Glee. Along with Evan Peters, the show has Molly Ringwald, Niecy Nash, and Richard Jenkins, in pivotal roles.

Despite the series being based on true events, it is super grueling because the real actions of Dahmer were more horrific and unimaginable than any fictional story. Considering the degree of violence and under-the-skin creepiness, fans of Peter Evans are concerned about his state of mind after the shoot.

The concern comes from seeing how swiftly Evan has fit into the role of Dahmer.

Evan Peters is one phenomenal actor. This looks terrifying and fascinating at the same time.
