Calamity Brains:

Ted Bundy may not be a film with high production value, but what it lacks in flash, it makes up for in creepiness. Though definitely bolstered by the audience’s knowledge that the movie is based on a true story, the filmmakers managed to put together a careful, considered look at the serial killer’s life that will gnaw at you long after it’s over.

Michael Reilly Burke as Bundy is captivating. He’s working with a decent script, but he also does a great deal to capture nuances of the character. Despite what Bundy is (and is doing), the audience is encouraged to feel sorry for him. Even before his life starts completely falling apart, he’s stuck knowing that something is wrong with him, and maybe even wanting to be normal – a feeling most people can relate to.

Even if serial killer retrospectives or true crime type stories aren’t your cup of tea, this one is worth the watch. Just be prepared to mistrust everyone you meet for a long, long time.

Calamity Brains’ Rating: B-

Calamity Brains

The Codex Mortis Horror Hosts (Ludwig von Stroodle and Calamity Brains) are married and live in West Virginia. Pretty much everyone who sees their cabin agrees that it would be an ideal setting for a horror movie. Their pets include a black widow spider, a smart dog, and a stupid dog. When they aren’t watching horror movies, they can be found at whiskey festivals, Renaissance fairs, and board game nights.
