Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes

  • Year: 2019
  • Directed by: Joe Berlinger

Memories of a Murderer: The Nilsen Tapes

  • Year: 2021
  • Directed by: Michael Harte

“I wished I could stop, but I couldn’t. I had no other thrill or happiness.” The sentence in itself doesn’t sound so disturbing, but it will, once you know the context behind it.

Nelson’s killings were in full swing between 1978 and 1983 when he’d strangulate and sometimes drown his victims to death.
