There’ll by no means be a scarcity of curiosity in serial killers and murderers. We’ve lengthy been fascinated by some infamous males for a number of the unspeakable issues they did and the web is a superb software for deep-diving into the topic. Whereas some are drawn to such circumstances out of morbid curiosity, maybe the larger curiosity comes from a psychological viewpoint. Why do they do the issues that they do? What’s happening inside their heads that set off that violent impulse?
As I mentioned, the fascination is limitless. The truth is, simply final yr, we acquired three separate motion pictures inspecting some side of the Manson household and we additionally acquired two movies about Ted Bundy, the documentary collection Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes and the function, Extraordinarily Depraved, Shockingly Evil and Vile. Mockingly, they have been each directed by Joe Berlinger.
Now, a 3rd film about Bundy is on the best way, though Berlinger isn’t concerned this time round. No Man of God, starring Elijah Wood, shall be proven as a part of subsequent week’s digital Cannes market announcement. The pic follows FBI analyst Invoice Hagmaier (Wood) and his relationship with Bundy and largely takes place in an interrogation room, chronicling conversations between Hagmaier and Bundy between 1984 and 1989, culminating within the latter’s execution.
In addition to Wood’s involvement, no different casting, together with that of Bundy, has been introduced. Amber Sealey is directing from a script by Physician Unusual’s C. Robert Cargill and primarily based on the synopsis, it feels like a cross between the Bundy Tapes docuseries and the superb Netflix present, Mindhunter. If it’s going to be largely about conversations between two males although, then the casting of Ted Bundy shall be fairly essential.
