tracy edwards now

In the new Netflix series on serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, viewers are told that Dahmer was obsessed with the movie “Exorcist III.”

In fact, in the show, Dahmer plays the movie for Tracy Edwards, a man he has lured back to his apartment. But Edwards escapes, and he leads Milwaukee police back to Dahmer’s lair.

Is this true, though? Was “Exorcist III” really Dahmer’s favorite movie?

The answer is yes. That scene in the Netflix show comes straight out of Edwards’ trial testimony.

What is the movie about? According to Rotten Tomatoes:

Police Lt. Kinderman (George C. Scott) notices similarities between his current murder investigation and the methods used by the “Gemini” killer (Brad Dourif) who was executed 15 years before. He soon discovers a hospitalized mental patient (Jason Miller) claiming to be the dead serial killer, but who looks uncannily like a priest Kinderman knew who died during an exorcism. As more bodies are found, Kinderman looks for connections between the two supposedly dead men.

That’s where the movie comes in.
