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 »

Intriguing and Horrifying
26 January 2019 | by shannonkrystalgossSee all my reviews

First of all, you can totally watch this alone, but...prewarning...you won't be able to stop. It's 3 AM, and I was not going to sleep until I had finished it. I honestly never really knew much about Ted Bundy. I just knew of him and that he was an infamous serial killer. I had no idea how extensive his killings were, and I'm honestly dumbfounded. I don't know how he got away with it for as long as he did. It makes me wonder how long he would have made it today. He is...by far...the worst, but it makes me wonder how many people out there are just like him. This documentary was one of the best I've seen. I would definitely put it up there with Making a Murderer. I'm really going to need Netflix to make this a series and add some more seasons on the rest of these guys, i.e. Manson and Dahmer. Please and Thank You!
