Ted Bundy: American Boogeyman is an addition to the list of Bundy films that came out in recent years. Netflix’s movies such as Extremely Wicked, Vile, and Shockingly Evil gave us an insight into Bundy’s crime through the eyes of her girlfriend. This year we have two movies related to serial killer Ted Bundy. He had become a point of fascination before he was executed in 1989.
What About Ted Bundy?
Hollywood has totally exploited his popularity by making several movies on him. So what is special about Ted Bundy? We’ll try to answer this question only in the following paragraph. The movie is not too intriguing unless you’re a fan of a serial killer turning into a standard one. The major part of American Boogeyman shows us the story of Ted Bundy as he moves from one town to another, stalking and killing women on the go.
The murders don’t seem suspenseful, and the story is completely monotonous. There’s no reason behind these killings, and it’s just that the person is a serial killer, and he does that for fun. This was all about the first part of the movie.
In the second part of the movie, we see agents Robert Ressler and Kathleen McChesney trying to track down Bundy through the traces he leaves at his crime scenes. The second part can be considered the filmmaker’s answer to the movies- Mindhunter or Zodiac. The sad part is that this section lacks thoroughness and authenticity. People playing the role of Police don’t give justice to their characters.
When we talk about American Boogeyman, Daniel Farrands, director and writer of the movie, just has exploitation in his mind. It doesn’t feel good to watch such a movie where people’s lives are considered so cheap that they’re just being used for the purpose of entertainment.
Chad Michael Murray has done justice to his role. He’s mostly seen roaming on the streets like a pervert. He has a porn stache which is shown to the audiences during the second half of the movie. There’s nothing new that Ted Bundy: American Boogeyman has got to say about this serial killer. This movie tries very hard to shock everyone with its depiction of violence, but instead, it makes the viewers feel like they’re watching some sort of reheated slasher leftovers.
