The 'Ted Bundy Tapes' Netflix docu-series is creepy, chilling, and the streaming platform wants you to think twice about watching it all alone.

Netflix's Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes was directed by Joe Berlinger and tells the harrowing story of the man who murdered dozens of women in multiple US states during the 1970s. The Ted Bundy Tapes is a viewing experience for anyone obsessed with the true crime genre, but even Netflix want viewers to use the buddy system when watching.

In The Ted Bundy Tapes, viewers get to hear audio recorded by the killer himself as he recounts his upbringing, past relationships, and even provides "third person" commentary on the gruesome events. The tapes are juxtaposed with photos, interviews, and archival news footage which paint a chilling picture of the horrific crimes and the man behind them.

The Ted Bundy murders are generally well known but even a true crime aficionado might find the way Bundy discusses the killings in the series to be, well, pretty freaking spooky.

People learned things they'd never known about Ted Bundy and it freaked them tf out.

Ted Bundy's behaviour after his arrest also surprised people. Most notably, the killer escaped prison twice and was named as the father of a baby girl while he was on death row.

And we're gonna need everyone to pump the breaks on this Ted Bundy handsome business.

A lot of the documentary talks about how normal and good looking Bundy was but people aren't quite convinced that should be the focus of the series.

Hearing Ted's voice on the tapes was definitely one of the creepiest parts of the documentary.

And, despite Netflix's warning, people are definitely watching the series alone.

Netflix released Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes on January 24, the 30th anniversary of Ted Bundy's execution. The four part series is available to view right now but maybe follow Netflix's advice and buddy up!

And repeat after me, folks: we're not thirsting after killers in 2019.
