    It’s kinda crazy. I remember watching this movie a few years ago in the theater with a friend in a nearly empty screening. Not sure what got my ass in that seat, but I’m glad it did.


    It’s strange to approach this film without the knowledge of this franchise’s booming success. As long as we keep seeing them, they’ll keep making them. Honestly I’m up for it. Even if I didn’t particularly like #2 & have yet to see #3, this…

    ★★

    What an interesting idea for a film. Showing Ted Bundy as someone wrongfully convicted, but also as a superstar. There are times where it nails certain elements, but it ultimately/unfortunately falls short.  

    I like a lot of the choices made. Not showing the horrible acts that Ted Bundy is accused of committing, having him seem desirable, Zac Effeon as the lead....  But the way the narrative frames it all is rather odd. It’s almost as if this wasn’t about Ted…
