Plot Summary:
"Docu-drama based on the life of Ted Bundy, a serial killer who killed at least 19 young women during the 1970's (though some sources say as many as 30 to 35 were murdered). Set from his college student years, to his first victims, his capture, escape from prison (twice), his final killing spree to his trial, conviction and execution."

Matthew Bright must surely be one of the most misunderstood filmmakers of our generation. With Ted Bundy he made the material his own much to the disgust of most audience members.

The film recounts the killing spree of infamous serial killer Ted Bundy but is different to all the other serial killer flicks of late in that it uses humour and shock tactics to get a reaction from the audience.

The cast are all very good especially Boti Bliss who perfectly portrayed the kind of ignoramis who allowed Bundy to be successful in his endeavours.

Tiffany Shepis and Tom Savini give excellent performances as the only known victim to escape, and a town Sherrif respectively, and the ending provides a sick sense of happiness for the viewer as Bundy gets his comeuppance.

By using wacky music and brave editing choices, the film shows us how much of a freak Bundy was but perhaps audiences would have been more forgiving of Matthew Bright had he chosen to play it straight.

The violence is graphic and in particular a scene involving a 12 year old girl is particularly hard to watch, but nonetheless this is a brave film, firstly for covering the subject matter and secondly for choosing to do it in the directors own style as opposed to a straight laced account.

Ted Bundy is not an amazing film. Who you watch the film with also plays a great deal in how you will respond to it. It may not always be successful in treading the line between decency and bad taste, but should be respected for trying.
