On Sept. 21, Netflix released the show “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story,” starring Evan Peters. The show was created by Ryan Murphy who is also the creator of the show, “American Horror Story.” Its plot is based on the life of Jeffery Dahmer and leading up to the events before he was caught and convicted of 16 counts of murder.

During the first few weeks of the show’s release everyone was talking about it. I was even talking about it with my teachers. The memes have started, people saying Evan Peters deserves an Emmy award for his performance.

The show’s casting directors did an amazing job at finding these actors. The actors look and act exactly how they were shown on live TV and the recorded trial. The details are very on point, they got almost everything right, including the clothes, houses, even the furniture inside the houses.

The only issue with the show is that there was no permission from any of the victims family or anyone who had anything to do with this case. I believe that if you’re going to make a show about someone’s life and how they harmed other people, you might wanna ask for some sort of permission.

Overall, this show is very good at portraying the life of Jeffrey Dahmer and it’s definitely going to win some awards. I just wish there would have been permission from the families so they wouldn’t have to live through all of the harm they went through the first time.
