I don't wanna die, I'm not gonna lie to you. I admit that. And I'm not asking for clemency, I'm not asking for forgiveness. I'm not asking for sympathy. I know they're gonna kill me sooner or later... you don't need to worry about that, but... there's a lot of crimes I can solve, if the state can just see fit to let me live for two or three years longer, I mean... Look, I know I'm not like other people, I know I can't... feel sympathy for other people. But I'm still human.

The memories of Ted Bundy's murders still haunt my city. Every single person old enough to read in the 70's was (and some to a degree still are) terrified of this mysterious stranger who would abduct and ultimately murder these beautiful young women. That said - this is a really good film on all levels. Acting, writing, direction are all top notch. The opening scene of "Hi, I'm Ted. Pleased to meet you" is particularly disturbing. This man was by all appearances a handsome young law student considering a political career when really he was a slobbering ogre. If you felt the TV movie with Mark Harmon was lacking that certain something, watch this. It is by no means sympathetic to that creature. In fact, it reveals a manipulative and pathetic crybaby loser. While there is definitely sadistic murderous behavior depicted, it never reaches a level inappropriate for the tale.
