Why Netflix's Ted Bundy Series Is The Most Disturbing Crime Documentary You'll See This Year

Updated 5 Nov 2019 8.9k views15 items

Ted Bundy is perhaps the most notorious serial killer of the 20th century. He took the lives of over 30 women and proved incredibly difficult to catch, as he blended easily into his surroundings and exploited the lack of communication between police departments. He appeared to be an average, mild-mannered, conventionally attractive man. Women were drawn to his charm and trusted him based on his apparent education and privilege. But Bundy was leading a double life - he stalked multiple women across the United States during the '70s, terrifying the nation.

Reporter Stephen Michaud sat down and spoke in depth with Bundy after his capital sentence. Michaud got Bundy to describe his life and offenses in the third person. The Netflix documentary Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes details Bundy's perspective of his spree, and the tapes reveal a man who is self-obsessed, misogynistic, and just plain creepy. Seeing life from Bundy's point of view yields deeply disturbing results.
