Exploitative and largely devoid of the depth or sophistication that would make watching such a graphic treatment of the crimes bearable.

Megan Turner
New York Post

A trashy, exploitative, thoroughly unpleasant experience.

Rob Gonsalves

He was psychothic but somehow I doubt that he was the world's biggest luser...

Mike D'Angelo
Time Out

An artsploitation movie with too much exploitation and too little art.

Pretty twisted horror/thriller about the infamous 70's serial sex killer. Ted Bundy was a seemingly normal bloke, quite charming and charismatic but hidden… More

While it's somewhat interesting to look into this portrayed psyche of Bundy's, this film grows stale quickly. As soon as Bundy is caught, you know the… More
