Bundy: An American Icon (2008)
Don't underestimate this film, just because it's disguised as every other low budget serial killer biopic
I saw this movie being discussed on a forum, and i figured i'd check it out. I know Corin Nemic from his days on "parker lewis can't lose" and his role in Stephen King's "The Stand", but i was shocked at how unrecognizable he is in this film. Maybe it's the dark subject matter, but it seems like he's channeling and not just acting.
Mind you there are some low points in the film. I thought the score took away from the seriousness at times. The fact that they chose to put no name musicians singing songs with lyrics instead of a score had a detrimental effect on certain scenes (like early in the film when they establish his relationship with stephanie) but this also has a strange lulling effect that sets you up for the complete 180 degree flip that comes when you see ted's dark side.
The end was moving for me. A little over the top, but effectively so.
I'm utterly shocked at the fact that i like this film so much. I've seen a lot of the other movies about gein and gacy (with that fat guy from pee wee's big adventure...) but this stands apart from those films on every level for me.
I highly recommend this movie
PS the fact that Kane Hodder (faous for his part in the Friday the 13th series) is in this film, along with the INTENSE amount of gore and violence makes this perfect for horror fans.
