Based on a true story, this film depicts the life of Theodore Robert Bundy, the serial killer. In 1974, after having murdered several young women, he leaves Seattle for Utah, where he is a law student and where other girls disappear. It takes the cooperation of a number of police forces to work efficiently on this case. Soon, but not soon enough, the police eliminate endless possibilities and close in on him. Bundy is tried in the media and his good-boy attitude brings him sympathy but also the hatred of many.

He was easy to like. Deadly to know. Tough to catch.

Frederic Forrest depicts Detective Bob Keppell the way the intense actor portrayed a lot of characters (like in Apocalypse Now and The Rose): as being a tough, no-nonsense cop who considered Bundy a bitter enemy. While he was no fan of Bundy's actions, Keppell, who in real life was more soft-spoken, would go on to work with Bundy many times, corresponding on The Green River Killer case, and continuing to interview him until his death. The Keppel portrayed here would never last in the same room as Bundy. See more
The Utah mall incident occurred in 1974 yet the Stevie Nicks album "Rock a Little", which is displayed on the store window behind Bundy and his intended victim, was not released till 1985. See more

The MO of the Ted at Lake Sammamish, same fractures to the victim's skulls, and the same mountain location where the bodies were dumped all add up to one human... monster.
