Dahmer

Spoiled

Today’s difficult task is liking a song that was made famous by a crime/thriller series.

Song: Please Don’t Go

Artist: KC And The Sunshine Band

Series: Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story

Crime/Thriller movies have ruined songs for me before. The last one was Hold Me Now by the Thomson Twins. I first heard the song on the movie Black Mirror. Every time I listen to it I feel good, then I feel lonely and miserable. In the case of Please Don’t Go, it’s pure fear. The lyrics go

“Babe I love you so

I want you to know

That I’m Gonna Miss Your Love

the Minute You walk out that door

So please don’t go”

and all I can picture is Jeffrey Dahmer pulling my legs into an underground cabin in the woods. But the song is great! Nice 80s feel and happy. The irony is incredible.

Fear

The new Dahmer series has got me gripped. It’s easily one of the most horrifying things I’ve seen on the internet. What makes it different is the way they show the past and present side-by-side. The switches between the two are done incredibly well. Even though this is giving me a lot of anxiety, I just had to google the real Dahmer story and unfortunately, I stumbled upon an actual interview with the guy, and he is way scarier in real life. I think this is one of the few times where the filmmakers have chosen to tone down the character. Throughout my life, the human mind has amazed me, what it is capable of, so much creativity and so much destruction. If only all minds had a healthy upbringing, the world would have been a better place.
