Well, I’m still upset about the Super Bowl, and if you had the same feeling of wanting to kill someone after watching the Patriots win another championship, get your murder fix through Netflix’s “Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes”.
Just look into those cold dead eyes in that picture. If I saw someone looking at me like that, first thing I would think of is “yeah, this guys going to try to murder me”. Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes is a 4 part Docuseries takes a look into the life and actions of one of the most notorious serial killers in American history. This dude was absolutely insane, he killed 30…..yes 30…..people, he was a monster. His murderous route took him from Seattle to Florida just picking people off. I always find it weird that I enjoy these series so much because of how horrible the crimes these people committed were, but they really did a great job on this. 4 episodes, each about an hour, each building in suspense and adding to the insanity of this mans actions. Its narration is in part from recordings of Bundy talking in a third person about what had transpired with essentially himself. The rest of the series is from people such as his attorney, the prosecution on many of the trials he took part in, and even a woman who escaped his clutches.
Bundy talked about how this person who committed these crimes must have been deranged or insane, without ever admitting anything that could be drawn back to him. That’s pretty genius for a murderous psychotic guy who is almost relishing in the actions of the man (himself) who must have committed all these atrocities. This man was charming, smart, and a good looking guy which made it so much more unbelievable that someone who seemed so normal could have done such horrible things.
Also if you see the really creepy gif above, you can see this guy had the meanest unibrow in the game. Now I don’t want to spoil anything for you, but since this is history and you can look up pretty much any of this, I’ll spoil one little thing for you; this man escaped prison twice. How is that even possible, it blew my mind watching this. One of the most infamous serial killers of the era and he just gets out twice. Like I said before, he was very smart and because of his nature and personality, he was able to gain peoples trust undeterred by the accusations (all 100% true) against him. So if that’s not enough to get you to work this series into your hungover Sunday schedule, I don’t know what will. I give this series a 7.6/10. This really was a great watch and I would recommend it, however, this is a horrifying and at times nightmarish thing to watch because it does make you think, you could be talking to, looking at, or even living with a murderer. Oh and definitely don’t watch it at 2:30am when you have work the next day like I did. Big mistake there because you might not sleep.
