Netflix has debuted Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, and it’s fair to say that the true crime documentary might be one of their most chilling offerings to date.
The anticipated documentary comes on the 30th anniversary of Bundy’s execution and features hours of unheard audio from the killer, who confessed to the brutal murders of 36 women and young girls during the 70s.
As well as the unheard footage of Bundy itself, the documentary also features testimonies from women who met the notorious killer and lived to tell the tale.
It all sounds extremely grisly – and now Netflix has subtly advised caution before settling down to watch it.
“For those of us with a PhD in true crime podcasts, Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes is now streaming maybe don’t watch it alone x,” Netflix wrote on Twitter.

One fan added: “Why do I get the feeling this ted bundy documentary is gonna f*ck my mind for a while.”
Another said: “My god the Ted Bundy tapes are Fucking terrifying! He was a complete & utter sociopath & to hear him talk about it all is bizarre.”
Speaking to Refinery29, director Joe Berlinger explained: “The Netflix series is a cataloguing and deep dive into the cradle to grave of Ted Bundy, really dissecting his crimes and methodologies.
“He taps into our most primal fear: That you don’t know, and can’t trust, the person sleeping next to you. People want to think those who do evil are easily identifiable. Bundy tells us that those who do evil are those who often people we know and trust the most.”
The documentary is airing on Netflix now.
