Evan also credited the show’s crew for helping keep his motivation going during filming.
While his performance has received universal praise, the rest of the series hasn’t gone down so well with viewers.
Some have called the drama exploitative despite its aversion to depicting Dahmer’s crimes, while others have argued the series has reinvented the crime genre by giving a much louder voice to the killer’s victims.
However, a relative of one of his victims, Eric, tweeted: “I’m not telling anyone what to watch, I know true crime media is huge right now, but if you’re actually curious about the victims, my family (the Isbell’s) are p****d about this show.
“It’s retraumatizing over and over again, and for what? How many movies/shows/documentaries do we need?” (sic)
Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story is available to stream on Netflix.
