Fry Day is a haunting and suspenseful Indie film directed by Laura Moss that revolves around the events of the infamous day when Ted Bundy was executed. Set in the small town of Gainesville in 1989, the story follows a teenage girl, Phoebe (Jordyn DiNatale), who just wants to attend the county fair and have some fun. However, when she is asked by a local newspaper to cover the Ted Bundy execution, her curiosity gets the better of her and she decides to take up the opportunity.

As the film progresses, we see Phoebe travel to the prison and take her seat beside other journalists as they witness the execution. However, things take a dark turn when the night starts to get eerie and unnerving. The film follows her as she returns to Gainesville, and encounters a mysterious stranger named Joe (Jimi Stanton), who seems to know her identity and is willing to help her get home.

Throughout the film, the tension is palpable, as we see Phoebe slowly coming to terms with the fact that Joe may not be who he is claiming to be. His dark past reveals itself and the lines between reality and fantasy start to blur. Elizabeth Ashley plays a significant role in the movie as Phoebe's alcoholic grandmother who adds another layer of complexity to the story.

One of the strengths of Fry Day is its cinematography. The film is shot in a way that makes the audience feel as though they are in the same room with the characters. Hill country of Texas serves as the perfect backdrop for this eerie tale, and the director does a great job of creating an ominous, unsettling atmosphere that keeps the viewers on edge.

Despite the fact that the movie is set around Ted Bundy, it is not a true crime film. Rather, it is a coming-of-age, psychological thriller that explores the themes of trauma, fear, and identity. The film is an exploration of the impact that living with the knowledge of the atrocities committed by a serial killer can have on one's psyche. The way in which Phoebe's character handles the situation elevates the story beyond a standard horror flick and adds depth to the overall message of the film.

Overall, Fry Day is a well-crafted, thoughtful movie that tackles the horror of Ted Bundy's case from a unique and interesting perspective. It is a movie that keeps the audience engaged from start to finish, and features strong performances from the lead actors. Laura Moss has done a great job of bringing this story to life and it is a commendable debut feature film. If you're in the mood for a slow-burning, creepy thriller, then Fry Day should definitely be on your watchlist.

Fry Day is a 2017 drama with a runtime of 16 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.8.
