Alternate titles : Bundy

Tagline : "Thirty Five victims, Ten states, One killer."

Ted BundyOne of the better serial killer docu-drama's to come out during the 00's, was this tale of American killer Ted Bundy, who preyed on women across 10 different states during the 1970's.

Starting off in Seattle in 1974, the film shows us how Bundy (as played by Michael Rielly Burke) selected his earlier victims, mostly students from the local university. Before going on to abduct, murder and mutilate dozens more across 9 other states whilst he was away studying at law school. Largely by luring them to his car, by faking an injury or illness.

Though skipping over certain details, for example the names of the people he kills in the film were not actually the names of the victims in real life. The film certainly pulls no punches in showing the brutality of his crimes, including where he blugeoned 4 female college girls to death in their dormitory, and how one of his victims escaped, which lead to his eventual conviction and execution in the late 80's.

Written and directed by Mathew Bright, the film remains largely faithful to the original case, detailing many of his killings and certainly captures many of the disturbing elements that made his crimes so shocking and even goes as far as to feature genuine news footage from the actual trial.

Definitely one for fans of true crime stories. Also, look out for horror veteran Tom Savini who has a guest role as a police detective.
