Absolutely terrible
7 August 2008 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

"Boston Strangler : The Untold Story" is a poorly acted, horrendously written, low budget, garbage movie. This film fails on so many levels, it's difficult to know where to start. The acting is about on the level you would expect from a high school theater. As to why Bud Bundy was cast as the lead in this role, I'll never know. But to the actor's credit, they didn't have much to work with. The writing in this film is among the worst I've ever seen. We are forced to sit through many long pointless scenes and terrible, self-serving, completely unrealistic dialog sequences.

I recommend no one see this movie. Doing almost anything else for an hour and a half would be a better use of your time.
