Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes dropped on Netflix yesterday, but the streaming giant as issued a stark warning, advising people not to watch the true crime series alone.
"For those of us with a PhD in true crime podcasts, Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes is now streaming," Netflix wrote on Twitter.
"Maybe don't watch it alone x."
The docu-series was released just in time to coincide with the 30th anniversary of Bundy's execution, and people who've watched the series have already taken to Twitter to voice their fears.
One person posted: "IM WATCHING IT ALONE AT WORK IN THE OFFICE RN AND I GOT A TEXT AND MY PHONE VIBRATED SUPER LOUD ON THE DESK AND I SCREAMED."
"New @netflix series on serial killer Ted Bundy just launched, and so far this is the most interesting thing ive seen in a while. Sick, sick man. May the souls he disturbed on earth Rest In Peace. #TheTedBundyTapes," another wrote.
The long-awaited series includes never-heard-before audio tapes from interviews recorded with the serial killer while he was on death row.
Bundy was sentenced to death row after confessing to 30 murders, but US lawyers claim the actual number of victims is more likely to be more than 100.
The night before his execution, Bundy gave a chilling 45-minute interview all about his early life and what drove him to commit his heinous crimes.
During the interview with campaigner Dr James Dobson, he said: "As a young boy - and I mean a boy of 12 or 13, certainly - I encountered outside the home softcore pornography. From time to time we'd come across pornographic books of a harder nature - more graphic, you might say - and this also included such things as detective magazines.
"The most damaging kinds of pornography are those that involve sexual violence, because the wedding of those two forces, as I know only too well, brings about behaviour that is just too terrible to describe."
Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes is available to stream on Netflix now.
