Hey kids! Who wants to see a Disney star play a real-life cannibalistic serial killer in his teenage years?

That's exactly what's going on with My Friend Dahmer, a new film based on the graphic novel of the same that stars Austin & Ally star Ross Lynch as the titular Dahmer. The graphic novel, which was written by John Backderf, is based on his own recollections of Dahmer in high school and how the awkward teenager went from weird and reclusive to something truly sinister.

There's definitely vibes of We Need To Talk About Kevin from this, but what's really fascinating is the fact that a former Disney Channel star is now playing one of the most notorious serial killers of the twentieth century - and it looks like he nails it, going by this trailer.

Take a look.
