** The super 8 footage scene, you expect it to cut halfway and show the gruesome bodies at any moment.


* CompleteMonster: [[ManipulativeBastard Ted Bundy]] is a charismatic psychopath who is arrested on kidnapping charges. Once evidence is found that suggests that he is responsible for a series of murders across several states, Bundy does everything in his power to charm the public and attempt to avoid justice from the ensuing murder trial. He escapes prison, brutally murdering two women and viciously attacking two more before being recaptured after savagely beating a police officer who pulls over Bundy, who is in a stolen car. In addition, Bundy exploits the love his girlfriend [[TheProtagonist Liz Kloepfer]] has for him in order to convince her that he is innocent, not caring about the physical and emotional toll the stress from the trial is taking on her. When she can no longer stand by him, Bundy simply moves onto a [[MonsterFangirl more compliant woman]], filling her head with the same lies he'd told Liz, [[YourCheatingHeart while still attempting to contact Liz behind the other woman's back]]. Though Bundy maintains his facade of innocence for years, he eventually confesses to the murders of over 30 girls, [[WouldHurtAChild including one as young as 12]], cementing his status as one of the most infamous {{serial killer}}s in American history.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Another common complaint is that the movie [[HalfwayPlotSwitch switches focus halfway]] from Liz to Ted, and as a result doesn't develop either as much as if it focused solely in one character.

Added DiffLines:

** One word: "[[spoiler:HACKSAW]]."

Added DiffLines:

* NightmareFuel: Ted Bundy. While most of the horrible things he does happen offscreen, this actually [[NothingIsScarier heightens how frightening he is]] rather than diminishing it. For example, the scenes where he's acting like a loving FriendToAllChildren to Liz's daughter become absolutely ''terrifying'' once we later learn that one of his victims was a 12-year-old girl.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverLiveItDown:
** First off, that stupid title as mentioned before.
** Secondly, this film, along with the documentary ''Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes'', had unfortunately reignited an [[MonsterFangirl unhealthy interest]] in Ted Bundy among mostly female Internet and Netflix users, to the point [[https://www.thewrap.com/netflix-begs-people-to-stop-calling-serial-killer-ted-bundy-hot/ Netflix had to tell people to stop being attracted to him]].

* {{Narm}}: While Creator/JimParsons does a fine job as one of the attorneys prosecuting Bundy, itís damn near impossible ''not'' to think of [[Series/TheBigBangTheory Sheldon Cooper]] when heís onscreen. It doesn't help that one of the film's Netflix thumbnails is just a picture of Parsons' character, as it to tell people "Hey, look! Sheldon is in this movie!"
