‘The Ted Bundy Tapes’ on Netflix: Everything You Need to Know



Netflix is no stranger to the world of shocking true crime documentaries, but on the 30-year anniversary of Ted Bundy’s execution the streaming service is going all in. Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes is a four-episode docuseries that revolves around letting Bundy explain his many, many crimes in his own words. And it’s as shocking as you might imagine.

Taken from the interviews that led to the book Ted Bundy: Confessions of a Killer, the series features never-before-heard audio from the famed serial killer while he was on death row. The series comes from Joe Berlinger, known best for his work on the Paradise Lost trilogy and Unspeakable Crime: the Killing of Jessica Chambers.

There have been many books, films, and documentaries about Bundy, including the upcoming and buzzed about film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. But what sets The Ted Bundy Tapes apart? And is this four-hour documentary worth your time? Here’s everything you need to know.

Who was Ted Bundy?

Everyone likely knows Ted Bundy’s name but some may not remember why. Bundy was (and remains) one of the most notorious serial killers in history. Back in the 1970s, he was accused (and convicted, in many cases) of crimes not limited to rape, murder and, uh, necrophilia. In total, he confessed to 30 murders in seven different states, though researchers believe he killed a whole lot more.

When you think of serial killers, you probably picture someone inbred, disgusting, their outer shell mirroring the horror they hold inside. Bundy was far from that: he was extremely handsome, and was able to lure female victims to their deaths with his looks alone. He’s also well known for keeping trophies, including decapitated heads. Yikes.

When was Ted Bundy arrested?

The serial killer was first sent to jail in 1975 for aggravated kidnapping, but his time in Utah didn’t last long. While he was being connected to a series of homicides in other states, he made two prison escapes and murdered three more people before being recaptured in Florida in 1978. Once there he received three death sentences over the course of two trials.

Bundy was executed via electric chair at Florida State Prison on January 24, 1989. The Netflix documentary Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes is being released on the 30th anniversary of his execution.

What are The Ted Bundy Tapes?

Because Bundy was a compulsive liar, it’s difficult to find a full and accurate account of the many murders he committed. However, Stephen Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth’s interviews are largely regarded as the most honest account of his crimes.

While in prison Bundy allowed a journalist to interview him about his many cases in the hopes that they would clear his name. Michaud and Aynesworth took him up on that offer, interviewing the convicted killer over the course of several weeks. They asked him to speak mostly in third person as a way to get a clearer answer from Bundy while avoiding, in his own words, “the stigma of confession.”

The interviews were later published in the book Ted Bundy: Confessions of a Killer. The Ted Bundy Tapes are a combination of this raw interview footage as well as interviews with Michaud and Aynesworth, criminal and psychological experts, and people who used to know Bundy personally. It’s compiled from over 100 hours of previously unheard footage from Bundy himself.

Can I watch The Ted Bundy Tapes if I’m unfamiliar with the case?

Absolutely. Between explaining how Michaud and Aynesworth got access to these interviews, the four-part documentary starts with the killer’s early years and chronologically details the homicides he committed. The series as a whole serves as an expansive look into one of the most haunting criminal figures in American history. Only this time it’s also a documentary literally being narrated by its killer.

Can I watch The Ted Bundy Tapes if I’m a true crime mega-fan?

For people already familiar with Bundy’s case, The Ted Bundy Tapes doesn’t offer much in terms of new details. Hearing Bundy recount how these crimes “could have” occurred is deeply chilling, but overall the docuseries just tells one bloody chapter in criminal history very well. But there is one area where The Ted Bundy Tapes excels: showing the interrogation techniques used on serial killers.

A lot of attention has rightfully been paid to the countless crimes Bundy committed, but what brought out his confessions is often unexplored. Much like Mindhunter,David Fincher’s dark drama about interviewing serial killers in the 1970s, The Ted Bundy Tapespulls back those processes a layer, showing exactly how two men were able to get one of the most disturbed minds in recent history to talk.

Hello Again and Thanks for reading it is I David "Top40" Ellenberger with an update on the status of my lawsuit against Alphabet inc case # 4:20-CV-04877-SVK  and the website and life in general. By now if you regularly visit InternetTop40.com you may have read this section "author info" or Bio. So I am adding to it with more bio and more info. I originally liked the idea of voting on the internet 20-25 years ago when I first got online with WebTV (does anyone remember that?). The technology at that time was not advanced enough to easily be able to vote online or watch videos or much else for that matter but I was hooked and look at what we can do now with videos, IOT, and everything else, but I digress. I started InternetTop40.com about 5 years ago and the user base has been going up steadily ever since. I wanted to be another Facebook, with music and voting and that is all coming together slowly but surely. BTW if you want to help or have any interest please feel free to email me anytime.  Now in my previous Author Info or bio page I made it clear or at least I thought I made it clear, I am personally suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud. I have evidence to prove they are not counting all the pageviews, among other things and defrauding myself and probably millions of other website owners and content creators out of Billions of dollars. So if I wasn't clear or you didn't know it's true I am suing Alphabet inc. in Federal Court for Fraud the case was recently moved from my state of Kentucky to N. California to make it easier for Alphabet inc. to steam roll me or so they think. Needless to say if you are interested and I hope you are you can look the case up online under my name "David Russell Ellenberger" or the case # which is 4:20-CV-04877-SVK.

Now, I want to make it clear to you and everyone that I am not suing Alphabet inc. aka Google for fraud just because I want a million dollars for nothing. I am suing Google for fraud because I think they are committing  a serious crime with worldwide and societal ramifications, it is a  very serious problem.  I am suing Google for fraud because to put it simply the analytics numbers don't add up at least not in my favor or yours, there is something very fishy going on with the Google analytics numbers. Of course Google has an excuse for every one of them but I have reasons and the actual numbers and they don't add up, more about the numbers later. Companies like Google are making Billions of dollars a year in profits telling us data is the most valuable thing and misleading us and misdirecting the media and the world every chance they can.  Now data is valuable and they are making billions in profits seemingly like magic but there is no magic to it just corruption and lies. One thing Alphabet inc. aka Google is really making their money from and that is advertising dollars and they are putting all of this advertising on the websites other people have created. Websites that I have created and  websites you have created and websites millions of others around the world have created websites or content. For example Just writing a text is creating content and that's where Google puts the billions in advertising they receive and keeping most of it for themselves. Yes content others have created and yet somehow they are keeping almost all of these billions for themselves and not distributing it equitably to the real workers the true content creators who actually deserve the advertising monies. Google has made it's billions on the backs of you and me. Think about that for a minute, how can they continue to justify this? They Can't, it has to change.

For example if I were to prevail in the current lawsuit just half of the monies or $20 billion put into a basic account and compounded at 5% annually we could realistically employ over 800,000 people at $24,000 a year, indefinitely.  Sounds unbelievable but its true and if we only employed 400,000 people we could pay them $48,000 a year indefinitely. Its all true. Its simply a matter of having the money and the will to do it. Now is 400,000 people a lot well yes it would be more employees than almost any other company in the world and more than half the population of the entire city of Louisville, Ky.

I David Russell Ellenberger through my website InternetTop40.com am suing Google to try to help right a wrong. A wrong committed by Google that has simply gotten out of hand. Most people may think they can't do anything about it. Nothing can stop Google, the politicians don't care they use all of Googles data to further their own campaigns and line their own pockets while the rest of us keep on creating the content for Google, nothing can be done, this however is not the case, we can do something. The politicians and Alphabet inc. aka Google have done nothing to help society at large other than organize it so they can keep more money in secret and pay off all their buddies with their fraudulently obtained money. It's gotten so bad that the politicians and others in control won't even talk about it, they ignore it and hope it goes away, they won't even try to stop google because it is helping them too much and maybe they are scared of Google or who knows what they may be thinking. But it looks like fraud and it's coming to an end.

I'm telling you we can do something and I David Russell Ellenberger an average citizen Content Creator am saying to you, I'm not scared of Google because I have nothing left to loose.  I David Russell Ellenberger am telling you there is something you too can do, if nothing else, tell all your friends to come to InternetTop40.com aka IT40, believe these words and Create your Content. Further I promise to you and all who read this if I do prevail in my lawsuit against Alphabet Inc. I will use half of any monies I may receive to pay "content creators" a living wage. I pledge to anyone who is reading this, I will use half of any monies I may receive to help those who really do want to work on the internet and create content and tell us what they think. I will use half of any money so you can Get Paid, I want you to get paid for the content you create and get paid everyday and Get Paid to Vote create data and to be able to do this work online and from your home or anywhere in the world you care to be. Because in the words of an ancient scholar Y-O-U are the business Y-O-U are creating all the data, Y-O-U are the content creators and Y-O-U are all that matters.

Now the main thing I want you to take away form this and to know, Alphabet inc. is and has been committing fraud against you, me and everyone who uses the internet. I don't think Google started out to defraud the world it has just degenerated into this endless morass of corruption and fraud and no one seems to care, Well I care and I know you care too.  Sadly Google has been doing this with impunity for years and it is only getting worse. Please don't let them fool you with their lies and obfuscation. Do some research create some content build a website and research the analytics numbers you will find I am right. Google owes you, me and everyone online thousands if not 10's of thousands of dollars for all the data and advertising dollars they have co-opted from you and the rest of the world. So join with me don't use any Google products or file your own lawsuit in federal court against Alphabet inc. I will be glad to help you any way I can and show you how to do it if need be. It will take a sincere effort on your part but it will definitely help your self esteem, society and the world.

Now that's about all I have to say on this subject for now.  I will tell you this if you want more information or you have questions or comments for me, my email is [email protected] Thank you for reading looking and listening and believing in InternetTop40.com Please tell all your friends about us and don't forget to vote Thumbs up or down and refresh your page when your done. oh yeah and those funny old men running for president vote on one of them too or not. One last Thing, I need all the help I can get I am only 1 person but together and with todays technology we can move mountains and reframe society and our world the way we want it to be. Thank you ttyl
