Creepy, unrelenting and ultimately making you feel uneasy, Ted Bundy is the true story of the notorious serial killer. The film is decent for what it is, but it's not one of those pictures that are worth watching again and again. Actor Michael Reilly's portrayal of Bundy is chilling and is what makes the film work. This is a hard film to watch as it is a real life horror story about America's most depraved serial killer. I remember seeing this film when originally released, and it scared the hell out of me. Also it made me feel uneasy. Overall I thought it was a decent film, nothing good or great. However due to its content, it's only worth watching once. The performances are very good, and the lead actor is convincing as the demented title character. This film should appeal to people who are interested in such topics. This is nothing remarkable, and honestly I don't see why this film was made. Compared to Monster starring Charlize Theron, this one just lacks an effective script, and on many occasions, fails to be close to the true story itself. Either way, this is a true, horrifying story about a sadistic killer, and should only be watched by viewers that are interested in the subject. Other than that, there's nothing really rewarding or truly entertaining about the film. The film ultimately plays out like a low-budget made for TV drama horror flick that is decent due to its performances, but aside from that; this film is quite forgettable.

It's a really sophisticated movie about Ted Bundy, ultimately horrifying. I wouldn't watch it again
