Movie Info

Ted Bundy (Michael Reilly Burke) is a seemingly well-adjusted law student with a bright future ahead. Intelligent and good-looking, Ted has little trouble earning the affections of Lee (Boti Ann Bliss), a lovely woman who's willing to look beyond and accept her fiancé's sometimes lascivious sexual appetites. But little can prepare Lee for the brutal crimes Ted is about to commit: a six-state crime spree comprising over 30 homicides and hundreds of rapes.

Audience Reviews for Ted Bundy

  • Apr 09, 2013
    While it's somewhat interesting to look into this portrayed psyche of Bundy's, this film grows stale quickly. As soon as Bundy is caught, you know the film is essentially over. Stefani, playing Julie, fails to play a convincing role. The acting is generally poor in this movie, but it's especially bad on her end. Then there's the misogyny of this film; it's pretty intense. I realize that Ted was a serial killer who was known to rape and kill women exclusively, but still, the tone is really harsh here and it was a bit unsettling watching this. Have 96 minutes to spare? Well then, I wouldn't recommend it.

    Creepy, unrelenting and ultimately making you feel uneasy, Ted Bundy is the true story of the notorious serial killer. The film is decent for what it is, but it's not one of those pictures that are worth watching again and again. Actor Michael Reilly's portrayal of Bundy is chilling and is what makes the film work. This is a hard film to watch as it is a real life horror story about America's most depraved serial killer. I remember seeing this film when originally released, and it scared the hell out of me. Also it made me feel uneasy. Overall I thought it was a decent film, nothing good or great. However due to its content, it's only worth watching once. The performances are very good, and the lead actor is convincing as the demented title character. This film should appeal to people who are interested in such topics. This is nothing remarkable, and honestly I don't see why this film was made. Compared to Monster starring Charlize Theron, this one just lacks an effective script, and on many occasions, fails to be close to the true story itself. Either way, this is a true, horrifying story about a sadistic killer, and should only be watched by viewers that are interested in the subject. Other than that, there's nothing really rewarding or truly entertaining about the film. The film ultimately plays out like a low-budget made for TV drama horror flick that is decent due to its performances, but aside from that; this film is quite forgettable.

    It's a really sophisticated movie about Ted Bundy, ultimately horrifying. I wouldn't watch it again

    Pretty twisted horror/thriller about the infamous 70's serial sex killer. Ted Bundy was a seemingly normal bloke, quite charming and charismatic but hidden beneath it all was an absolute nutcase who seemed to enjoy killing women and fucking them! This shows, sometimes in gory detail(well not complete detail, obviously) his sick crimes and prison escapes that eventually ended up with Bundy in the electric chair. Quite an effective horror with a decent performance from the lead actor, Michael Reilly Burke, can't have been easy playing someone like that. Not brilliant but worth a look.
