Whether consuming a podcast, docuseries, or Zac Efron-led Ted Bundy movie, Americans have an undeniable obsession with true crime and murder. Of course, some people are very “Thank U, Next” when it comes to true crime, but many of us live for it. No matter where you fall on murder content, we think most people can agree that the new trailer for Netflix’s upcoming Ted Bundy docuseries might be the most chilling. Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes will feature 100 hours of previously unheard recordings with 1970s serial killer Ted Bundy, and the trailer gives us major creeps.
Paradise Lost documentarian Joe Berlinger helms the docuseries based on a book by the same name written by Stephen G. Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth. The interviews were conducted from prison in the 1980s while Bundy awaited his execution, and it’s unnerving to hear him speak.
Although many docs have detailed the Bundy murders over the years, none have included so many interviews with the killer, which Netflix called an opportunity to “get inside the twisted mind of America’s most notorious serial killer in his own words.”
There’s other spine-chilling stuff in the doc, too, like when one expert described his blue eyes turning black whenever he talked about his victims and how female fans showed up for his trial. If this is up your alley, the series premieres on January 24th on Netflix.
