Film Review - Ted Bundy: American Boogeyman


“Ted Bundy: American Boogeyman” is the second film about the serial killer that’s been unleashed this month (or the third, if you’re including the Blu-ray release of 1978’s “Killer’s Delight). There have been numerous movies made about the murderous ways of Bundy, but this one is written and directed by Daniel Farrands, a helmer with a deep affection for horror pictures from the 1980s. He’s been trying to transform real-world crimes into slasher entertainment, recently hitting Ten Worst lists with “The Murder of Nicole Brown Simpson” and “The Haunting of Sharon Tate.” This is the only kind of feature Farrands makes, and he’s back to his routine with “American Boogeyman,” which not only doesn’t understand the definition of “boogeyman,” but reaches a new low of tastelessness, transforming Bundy’s barbaric ways with female victims into bottom-shelf schlock, reveling in the violence the serial killer lived to cause, while the writing makes a ghastly last-minute attempt to turn crass exploitation into a celebration of police procedure and survival instinct.
