Ted Bundy may have died almost 30 years ago, but the deceased serial killer has a moment in the spotlight, such as the notorious killer in a new biopic with Zac Efron with the title Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.
Netflix also produces its own real crime series, called Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.
The series includes audio from exclusive, never-before-heard interviews of the & # 39; Jack the Ripper of the United States & # 39; self, & # 39; according to Netflix.
Conversations with a killer: the Ted Bundy Tapes contain unprecedented audio from interviews with the serial killer
Netflix will release four-part docuseries based on Ted Bundy in January
The docs will examine how Bundy's personality, appearance and social grace braved the serial killer stereotype and passed him unnoticed while he committed the sex crime victims of more than 30 women before he was arrested in 1978.
A few hours before he was tied up in the electric chair and was put to death on 24 January 1989, he gave his last interview and spoke with campaigner Dr. James Dobson about his early life and what drove him to commit his atrocities.
In a cool 45-minute interview, Bundy talked about how his obsession with pornography led him to become a sinister, calculating murderer.
He said: & # 39; As a young boy – and I mean a boy of 12 or 13 for sure – I came across softcore pornography outside the house. From time to time we came across pornographic books of a harder nature, you could say more graphically. And this also included things like detective magazines.
The new series is built around & confession & # 39; tapes and interviews that have never been heard by the public before, to shed new light on the killer.
The most harmful forms of pornography are those in which sexual violence is involved, because the marriage of these two forces, as I know very well, results in behavior that is simply too horrible to describe. & # 39; 39;
When his obsession grew, he explained Dr. Dobson, the kind of porn he was looking at became more aggressive and explicit.
He said: "My experience with pornography dealing with a violent level with sexuality is that if you become addicted to it – and I consider this a kind of addiction – like other forms of addiction … I would keep looking to more powerful, more explicit, more graphic types of materials.
& # 39; As an addiction you continue to long for something that is harder and harder. Something that gives you a greater sense of excitement. Until you reach the point where pornography goes that far. & # 39;
& # 39; You reach that starting point, where you begin to wonder if perhaps by actually doing it you will give that which is more than just reading about it or looking at it, & # 39; Bundy added.
He claimed that he was stuck for about two years at this & # 39; starting point & # 39; before, according to Ladbible, he started with the assault and murder of young women and girls.
The four-part series will also look at Bundy's two jailbreaks, as well as the media madness surrounding his trial, and the women who fell in love with him
Serial killer Ted Bundy raped and killed dozens of young women during a terror in the US in the 1970s
He said: & # 39; I was essentially a normal person. I had good friends. I lived a normal life, except for this one small, but very powerful, very destructive segment that I kept very secret, very close to myself, and no one let me know.
"And part of the shock and horror of my dear friends and family, years ago when I was first arrested, was not an idea. They looked at me and they looked at the American boy.
I think people should recognize that those of us who are so much influenced by violence in the media – especially pornographic violence – are not a kind of inherent monsters.
& # 39; We are your sons and we are your husbands. And we grew up in regular families. And pornography today can snatch a child from every home. & # 39;
During the trial, Bundy received an extraordinary adoration of American women, which made his gruesome crimes double, even in an age of all – it becomes chaos.
His graphic slaughtering garnered national attention, and in 1979 his trial for the gruesome murders and attacks on the Chi Omega student house at Florida State University became the first to be broadcast on national television.
Bundy was a law student who was convicted of killing and raping several women in seven states of at least 1974-1978.
He was executed in 1977 and sentenced for murder in Colorado.
He escaped from prison and was on the run until he was arrested later in Florida. Bundy finally confessed to kill 30 women, although the real total of murders is unknown.

Bundy hopes that his confessions would delay his execution, but he was put to death in Florida's electric chair in 1989.
Public prosecutors and researchers believe that Bundy may have been responsible for as many as 100 murders.
Even recently in 2011, the police used their blood sample to try to resolve cold cases.
Conversations with a murderer will also offer a new insight into Bundy's gruesome murders and the media madness surrounding his case.
While he was on trial, Bundy saw that many women professed their love for him and he even married Carole Ann Boone, who testified on his behalf.
The life of Bundy – known for its charm and good looks – still remains a fascination for pop culture, with long lost photos of the killer in April 2017.
Conversations with a killer will also look at how Bundy got attention from female admirers. The Netflix original will be broadcast on 25 January.
True crime is a big attraction for viewers. The streaming service series Making a Murderer: Part 2 was the second most binge-watched show in 2018.
