One is faced by all true-crime authors: determining how much gore is necessary to convey the grimness of events, and how much is revelling in violence for its own sake. Most authors are dependent on the richness of trial transcripts and on interviews with those around the killer, rather than interviews with the sociopath himself. If they gain access to the murderer, they do not speak to him as a friend.
As the story progresses into the spring of , when Bundy was found guilty of kidnapping and charged with murder, Rule finally suggests that she is leaning more toward believing that Ted is guilty. But her letter-writing and check-sending habits remain unchanged. Rule defends her actions as being in the public interest:.
When I began writing fact-detective stories I promised myself I would remember I was writing about the loss of human beings.
The Stranger Beside Me: Ted Bundy: The Shocking Inside Story
I hoped the work might somehow save other victims. I never wanted to seek out the sensational and the gory. Keep on writing. Let the public know how it is for us. Let them know how we hurt. The direct speech she relates from parents of victims seems parodic in how it exculpates her. They are built entirely out of case files, but are fully imagined. They are what the book Rule was contracted to write would have been had she never known Bundy. This really wasn't bad.
Too Close to Ted Bundy
As a TV movie, it could have been much cheesier. Barbara Hershey is very good.
I just wish that they had gotten someone more convincing and compelling than Bill Campbell as Bundy. Cool spin in the story of Ted Bndy. The scary thing is how many girls still believe in him. Ann Rule was researching the case for a book and took awhile to believe that he was the killer in the case.
The term serial killer only came up after the Ted Bundy case. Excellent movie.
