Did You Know?


Released exactly 30 years after the execution of Ted Bundy. See more »


A finger presses the "record" button on a 1970s/1980s-era cassette recorder in the title sequence -- but not the "play" button. Pressing the record button alone, however, would not start the tape, as both the record and play buttons must be selected in tandem for the machine to start recording. This is repeated often in the first episode, as well. See more »

User Reviews

One of the best documentaries.
17 February 2019 | by raudafitrianiSee all my reviews

I can't believe I've just watched all the episodes in one day - it's already 4AM. Horrifying, fascinating, and absolute dark. You won't able to stop watching it. I've read a bunch of an article about him a years ago before I've watched this documentary. What he did was horrifying, and the worst - I did read other serial killers but for me he is the worst of the worst. We, as an audience can understand about the horror of him, the other side of him, how dark the time when it happened - and this guy don't deserve any credit at all. I felt goosebumps just saw him smile. Very well put, and descriptive. But between this documentary and wikipedia - the wikipedia describes more about how he did all the horrifying things than the documentary. People may find this documentary boring because Ted won't tell his secret at all in his tapes - he was very careful. This documentary can't tell how scary this man was but if we're going deeply into that - I think I only can watch one eps. Recommended.
