Did You Know?
Rob Lowe, 'Peter Saarsgard', and Kiefer Sutherland were each offered the role of Ted Bundy. All of the actors refused due to the nature of the character.
The executioner is shown giving the condemned one application of lethal current. According to Florida procedures, current is applied three times.
The term "serial killer" was first used to describe Ted Bundy. In the months leading to his execution, he received more than 200 letters a day from women who claimed to love him.
Morbidly Fascinating/ Disturbing
Be prepared to leave your lights on in order to sleep for at least
three days after first viewing this morbidly fascinating account of
mass-murdering, intelligent sociopath Ted Bundy and his descent into
soul-less depravity. As a study in human nature gone wrong, this is a
fascinating body of work. Particularly because this movie is,
unfortunately, based on the facts, I am grateful that the viewer is not
forced to witness Bundy's every demonic act, though little is actually
left to mystery. Chilling, thought-provoking, disturbing, tragic, and
well-made, this movie is an often shocking account of one cold-blooded
monster's reign of terror.
The best part for this viewer is that the movie allows us to see Bundy
sentenced to death.
