The tale of Ted Bundy is one that has been told time and time again, and yet – over 30 years after his death – it is one that still manages to grip audiences.
Just last year, Netflix released its four-part true-crime series Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes which was a chilling deep-dive into the FBI’s audio interviews with Bundy while he was incarcerated. It was both fascinating and disturbing but, despite its clear intention to lean in on psychological aspects and criminal profiling, its approach was met with some criticism for failing to give enough of a voice to Bundy’s victims.
Director Joe Berlinger complemented his documentary series with the movie Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, which came at the subject from a different perspective and was based on the experience of Bundy’s longterm girlfriend Elizabeth Kendall (also known as Elizabeth Kloepfer).
