Toto, I've a feeling we're not on the Disney Channel anymore...

One of your favourite Disney Channel stars has just taken on the role of terrifying notorious serial killer and honestly, you'll never be able to see him in the same away again.

Ross Lynch, who you'll know and love from Austin & Ally, has ditched his usual aesthetic to dive head first into the story of Jeffrey Dahmer the infamous serial killer in a brand new biopic movie called My Friend Dahmer - and he looks INCREDIBLE in it.

If you don't know about Dahmer's crimes, prepare to be creeped out. Dahmer was a serial killer, sex offender and cannibal from Milwuakee who admitted to murdering seventeen young boys and men between 1978 and 1991. After being caught and eventually confessing, he was sentenced to 16 life sentences and was later murdered in prison by another inmate.

The film focuses on his life in high school right up until he commits his first murder in 1978.

Quite a heavy subject for his first non-Disney starring role, right?! Watch the full trailer above.
