Netflix has just dropped a two minute-long trailer for its soon-to-be-released docuseries on serial killer Ted Bundy.
Titled Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, the four-part series will look into one of America's most notorious killers ever known, dubbed 'Jack the Ripper of the United States' by the streaming giant.
Netflix is currently pumping out true-crime documentaries, like The Staircase and Making A Murderer, but this latest show looks even more twisted than the rest as it will feature never-heard-before audio interviews with the man himself while he was awaiting execution by electric chair on death row in Florida.
Bundy - real name Theodore Robert Bundy - confessed to kidnapping, raping and murdering over 30 women and young girls in the 1970s in the run-up to his execution, with detectives fearing the number could be much higher.
The series will look into the strange idolisation of Bundy by a number of women and the media frenzy surrounding his trial, as well as his bizarre marriage to Carol Ann Boone in the middle of court, who was testifying on his behalf at the time.
A number of women in the first official trailer for the true-crime series share their disbelief that Bundy had committed such heinous crimes as, in their own words, 'he doesn't look like the type to kill somebody'. The court room was also packed during his trial by young women. For many, he was handsome and he was charming, all of which ultimately helped him in becoming a killer.
The streaming giant's synopsis says that the series is a 'cinematic self-portrait crafted from statements made by Ted Bundy', giving viewers 'a unique look inside the mind of an infamous serial killer'.
It has been created by Emmy winner Joe Berlinge, who has also directed soon-to-be-released film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile with Zac Efron portraying the serial killer (who looks chillingly similar to Bundy).
Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes will be available to stream on Netflix from 24th January - exactly 30 years since the serial killer was executed by electric chair. This is definitely one to add to your 'must-watch' list.
