Exploitative and largely devoid of the depth or sophistication that would make watching such a graphic treatment of the crimes bearable.
It's possible that something hip and transgressive was being attempted here that stubbornly refused to gel, but the result is more puzzling than unsettling.
An artsploitation movie with too much exploitation and too little art.
A trashy, exploitative, thoroughly unpleasant experience.
Disturbingly superficial in its approach to the material.
In the end, Ted Bundy's only justification is the director's common but unexplored fascination with the frustrated maniac; there's no larger point, and little social context.
One of the rare movies that spend 100 minutes with someone only to glory in his protracted death.
He was psychothic but somehow I doubt that he was the world's biggest luser...
Instead of accurately accounting a terrible true story, the film's more determined to become the next Texas Chainsaw Massacre. But what about the countless other people who'd merely like to watch a solid tale about a universally interesting soul?
Bright seems alternately amused and disgusted with this material, and he can't help throwing in a few of his own touches.
As Bundy, Michael Reilly Burke (Octopus 2: River of Fear) has just the right amount of charisma and menace.
The feral brilliance of [Michael Reilly Burke's] performance lies in the way he evokes the subtle wrongness beneath the facade that gripped the public imagination.
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
I enjoyed this movie at the time, but time for a re-watch
