Due to the extent of his crimes Ted Bundy is the most notorious America serial killer and self- described as “the most cold-hearted son of a bitch you’ll ever meet”. He confessed to 30 homicides on death row, but it is widely considered that the true number of his victims is much higher with reports even suggesting as high as 100. Bundy was charismatic, charming, intelligent and attractive and lured his victims into a false sense of security. From watching the Netflix documentary, this is what viewers found the most disturbing, the ease at which Bundy speaks of his crimes.
If you’re a fan of the true crime genre Abducted in Plain Sight is another new true-crime documentary that is sure to have you gripped from the start. Abducted in Plain Sight details a family that falls prey to the manipulative charms of a neighbour, who abducts their adolescent daughter, not once but twice.
Happy Netflix viewing and don’t forget don’t view alone!
