A Different Serial Killer Movie - In a Good Way
3 May 2019 | by TwistedContentSee all my reviews

It is indeed quite on oddball among the serial killer movies, but definitely not a bad one. Joe Berlinger's take on Ted Bundy doesn't rely on graphic violence, killing/stalking action or any of the usual, horror-ish tropes, instead it poses as a court-room & relationship drama. While, for the first half of the movie, it's hard to grasp the exact tone of it, the second half has established a rather sad, uncompromising atmosphere - in a very good way. The pacing is not slow, it's quite engaging and has a smooth flow, at least for drama standards. As for the cinematography - it's crafty & careful, camera work and editing is swift and dynamic. While all is good and decent, the main quality of the movie is the acting - I was surprised by Zac Efron, whom I hadn't really seen in a serious role before. Job well done, Zac, job well done. The supporting cast is also remarkably great & John Malkovich is playing John Malkovich as always. The story is mostly centered on Ted Bundy's relationship with everyone but the victims, love life, his prison time, media side of the whole thing & courtroom happenings.

I have to say that, in my opinion, this particular movie about Ted Bundy does not serve much as an introduction to the topic, it's more for those who already know who Theodore Robert Bundy is. I've seen some reviews bashing the movie for not having any on-screen deaths or the usual, anticipated serial killer movie action, so, be warned. This is a different kind of a serial killer flick. My rating: 8/10
