Netflix Drops Trailer For Docuseries Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes
If you're one of those people who are obsessed with or even mildly interested in serial killers and all things gory, then you're going to love the new documentary series released by Netflix.
Titled Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, the four-part series will look into one of America's most twisted individual.
Over the past few years Netflix has capitalised on people's odd fixation with the morbid, creating some of the most captivating documentaries ever seen and delving into the darkest recesses of the human psyche with Making a Murderer, which followed the potentially wrongful imprisonment of Steven Avery, and French series The Staircase, to name just two.
But to make this Ted Bundy show just that bit creepier, it will feature never-heard-before audio interviews with the man himself from when he was on death row.
Bundy, who was born as Theodore Robert Bundy, had confessed to 30 murders, but detectives feared the true number could have been higher - having killed and raped numerous young women and girls throughout the 1970s.
According to the show's synopsis on Netflix, the show is a 'cinematic self-portrait crafted from statements made by Ted Bundy', which will give us 'a unique look inside the mind of an infamous serial killer'.
Launching on Netflix on 24 January, the docuseries will tie in with the 30th anniversary of Bundy's execution in 1989, and will focus on the murders he was convicted of, the media frenzy that surrounded his trials and his infamously charismatic way of charming women.
The show comes from Emmy Award-winning and Academy Award-nominated director Joe Berlinger, who is also behind Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, a forthcoming thriller starring Zac Efron as Bundy.
The film tells the tale of Bundy and his girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer as she struggles to come to terms with the reality of her boyfriend's sinister nature.
In an interview with Buzzfeed, Efron said he was looking forward to the role - especially given it's a far cry from his High School Musical days.
"Ted Bundy is going to be a challenge," he said.
"I think it's going to be different and it's going to be fun. I'm super stoked."
Efron also teased an image of himself in character earlier this year, writing on Twitter: "Meet Ted. #BehindTheScenes."
The film also stars Lily Collins as Elizabeth Kloepfer and John Malkovich as Judge Edward Cowart, who presided over Bundy's televised trial and imposed the death penalty.
