Watch Ted Bundy
- 1 hr 39 min
Ted Bundy is one of the most well-known serial killers to date, and the story of his murders makes for one of the most fascinating views into the criminal mind ever captured on film. Played by Michael Reilly Burke, Bundy begins his descent into madness by failing at communicating with the opposite sex as a normal man would. His attempts at stealing items to decorate his home with to impress women fail him horribly and he sets his eyes on higher goals. Although he finds love with a girlfriend, he is drawn by his obsession of victimizing women he encounters, stalks, rapes and kills. Being given claim to have killed 19 women, and some would theorize more, his capture and trial would prove to be one of cinematic worthiness. Not only does this film show the failed relationship in which he partakes and the developing of sexual obsessions that eventually end up consuming him, but it shows the difficulty that the authorities experienced while trying to bring him to justice. From his beginning as an awkward student during his school days, his madness develops into one that will remain to be studied for years to come. After becoming sloppy with his kills, he is able to be apprehended by the police. Bundy is able to escape his captivity by jumping from his prison, only to go back to his murderous ways. After being captured again, the hold on his presence goes unquestioned as the trial ensues. The story of his conviction and execution is also told as Bundy begins to become accountable for his previous actions throughout his life. For those who ever wondered what brings a man to do the types of things Bundy was able to, this is an excellent portrayal. Strong sexual language and nudity are throughout the film, along with gratuitous violence.
