I thought this would be just another exploitative piece of trash to add to the pile of bargain bin serial killer movies but it tried to be more. The dialogue is well written for the most part and makes you think while the actors do a decent job especially the guy playing Bundy who gets Teds insane narcissism spot on. This does suffer from the same issue as the Zac Efron movie because there is probably not enough blood letting for horror fans but I think showing these real life killers to be murderous anti heros like Michael or Jason is in poor taste so the restrained approach worked for me.
The movie is told from the detective's perspective so plays mostly as a police procedural. It is an accurate rendition of the events, but often plays like a made-for-tv movie and shies away from the grizzly details. I recommend it to people familiar with the Green River case or people looking to learn more about it as it follows the real timeline quite closely.
Since the early 2000s there's been a glut of straight-to-video offerings based on real serial killers. I think at this point every infamous American murderer has had their mug slapped on a DVD cover. Bundy especially! Most of the movies play fast and loose with the facts and many end up being pretty sleazy low-budget horror flicks which make you feel like you want to shower after seeing them. This is a very modestly budgeted entry in the serial killer genre but in giving it a chance I found it to be a surprisingly adequate documentary-style drama which tries to stick to the facts about the Green River Killer. One of the drawbacks of that approach is you get a talky film without much action but the horrifying moments which show the evil of the killers are effectively done. The sorority house murder by Bundy is particularly well executed. At times the movie's determination to not be overly sensational makes the tone a bit tepid but I could overlook the duller moments because overall it gives a fairly solid rundown of the facts as well as a realistic depiction of an obsessed cop whose out of his depth dealing with two serial killers. Flawed for sure but not bad at all.
Detective David Richards (played by former Eastenders star Mark Homer) leads the hunt for notorious serial killer The Green River Killer. With no leads to go on he agrees to visit Ted Bundy in prison hoping that the unique insights of one serial killer will help him catch another. Bundy and The Green River Killer plays out like a classic TV detective thriller rather than the dime-by-dozen serial killer biopics we've seen in last few years. I really appreciated the tense build up, human drama and gloomy atmosphere. Mark Homer has grown as an actor since we last saw him on the small screen but Jared Nelson steals the show as Gary Ridgway. He's genuinely creepy in every scene and nails Ridgeway's mannerisms. What surprised me the most though is the attention to detail and re-search that went into getting all the facts straight (only names of victims and the detective were changed). The only casting choice I had a problem with was Richard Mark, he does not look like Ted Bundy and is missing Bundy's charm (I also found his british accent very distracting). Overall an excellent and suspenseful thriller from the North Bank Team (Though regular Lee Bane are sadly missing) .This is a big growth and new territory for director Andrew Jones and easily one of his best films to date. I can't wait to see what he will do next.
The movie plays mostly like an old TV cop show following the main detective and FBI guy as they hunt down the Green River Killer and talk about serial killing. Most of the facts of the real case are followed closely but if you are aware of the true story it makes the film fairly predictable with few surprises. The best part of the movie is the performances by the actors playing Bundy and Ridgway. Both are very creepy and their scenes are by far the best parts of this movie.
