By now most of you should be aware of who Ted Bundy was but in case you have been living under a rock for the last 40 odd years he was one of Americas most prolific serial killers who assaulted and murdered many young women and girls during the 1970s, possibly even earlier. Just before he was scheduled to be executed Bundy admitted to 30 murders which were committed in seven states between the years 1974 and 1978. The real number of victims is unknown.
Four decades later this film throws fresh eyes on the glamorized killer to ask the question, was this handsome, well-educated serial killer simply a charming con artist who luckily outsmarted the authorities or if he was a calculated genius who was a master at keeping the monster within him hidden as he terrorized countless women and murdered at least 36 during the 1970’s.
The film also includes interviews with several women who were lucky enough to survive attacks from Bundy.

Decent documentary with new information. One thing annoyed me though, and that’s how many times you mentioned how he is not a mastermind, his looks and a few other things. They are certainly true statements, but after Ive heard the exact same description ten times, do I really need to hear it ten more?
It’s made for the US audience. They have to keep it dumbed down and simple.
In typical TV-commercial-breaks style, they repeat things over and over and over again. They seem to cater to the average American TV watcher who must have the attention span of a housefly. It was interesting, yet this documentary could have been cut by a third.
