Trivia

The film premiered on 26 January 2019 at the Sundance festival in Utah, coincidentally the state with many of Bundy's murders. The Sundance film festival starts on 24 January 2019, exactly 30 years to the day since Bundy's execution via electric chair in Florida. See more »

Goofs

There was a scene where Ted Bundy was forcibly restrained in his cell so to gain impressions of his teeth for evidence. In reality, he was shown the instruments that could be used on him if he chose to be difficult. Not only did he comply while sitting in a dentist chair, he reminded the officers that he had no problem doing this as he wasn't a violent man. See more »

Quotes

Ted Bundy: People don't realize that murderers do not come out in the dark with long teeth and saliva dripping off their chin. People don't realize that there are killers among them. People they liked, loved, lived with, work with and admired could the next day turn out to be the most demonic people imaginable

Zac nails it
1 February 2019 | by jokerittSee all my reviews

People forget that Ted Bundy had a plea bargain for only life in prison with no death penalty. He refused it at the last minute which shocked the judge. I still like the 2002 Bundy film with Michael Reilly Burke who also did a great portrayal of Bundy. This is Zac's serious role for once and shows he is a great actor unlike some of his poor comedies.
