Netflix’s Ted Bundy Tapes Worth Obsessing Over
I spent the last few nights watching Netflix's latest gripping documentary Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes and came away with much more than I ever expected.
For starters, we can't overlook how good-looking he was. Bundy was as charming as he was attractive, and used his looks and smile to manipulate his way through one of the deadliest killing sprees in American history in the 1970's. He manipulated women, law enforcement, judges, jury's and anyone and anything that got in his path of destruction.
For what it's worth, I feel like there's absolutely no way a serial killer in 2019 could ever do the kinds of things that Bundy got away with in the 70's. He wasn't just a cold-blooded killer, he was also an escape artist with a master in psychology who used his wit and brain power feed his maniacal thirst for blood while evading police and even vanishing from them in thin air.
For example, it's completely incredulous to think that law enforcement was so inept at times, they brought him into a courthouse for sentencing and left him alone in a room, un-cuffed. He proceeded to jump out of the window, disappearing for over a month, killing more people. Granted, forensic science and communication different back in the 70's, but it wasn't the freaking stone age.
Everything about The Ted Bundy Tapes is equal parts fascinating, gripping, and compelling.
Certainly a documentary worth binge-watching and obsessing over.
