We all seem to have a fascination with serial killers and what makes them tick. We wonder how, why, and what would drive someone to commit such heinous acts upon other human beings. We know we are intrigued by this because of the number of movies, tv shows, and documentaries that have been produced over the years chronicling the events and people behind them.

Netflix has had success with the docuseries they have produced about murder investigations. The Keepers, The Innocent Man, and Making a Murderer are just a few examples of the critically acclaimed true crime series you can find in the Netflix catalog.

Now Netflix has dived into the realm of serial killers. Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes explores not just the brutal murders committed by Bundy but also a look into his mind from his own words. Interviews recorded by journalists Stephen Michaud and Hugh Aynesworth show us what Ted Bundy was thinking about the crimes he committed and his reasoning and excuses behind. Even suggesting he was innocent.

What makes the idea of serial killers both interesting and scary? I think it's not just because of the murders they commit and how heinous they are but also the fact that most of them are recognized as every day normal people who were polite, charming, and bright. The idea that someone you may know or see every day can have this horrible secret and menacing side to them.

The four-part documentary itself is one to watch. Obviously, no normal person likes to hear about or see the murders of other people especially these murders of over 30 innocent women. But one can't help to be intrigued by the events and the man who committed them. It's a morbid thing to say that we would be entertained by such things but that's the reality. Maybe not so much entertained but just a way to understand what happened and why.
