There has always been a fascination with the true crime story genre. We have already seen Zac Efron as Ted Bundy in the Netflix Original film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, where Efron was praised for his acting taking on a serious role stepping away from his High School Musical days. 

Ted Bundy is once again explored in the new film Ted Bundy: American Boogeyman from director/writer Daniel Farrands. Chad Michael Murray stars as the notorious 1970’s serial killer Ted Bundy. Tracking him down is Detective Kathleen McChesney (Holland Roden), working out of the Seattle Police bureau, and rookie FBI profiler Robert Ressler (Jake Hays), the government agent who coined the term “serial killer”. Once again, this is the true crime story of how this notorious serial killer was brought to justice, for all of the fans of the genre.

Ted Bundy: American Boogeyman gets a VOD and physical media release on September 3rd.
