Two documentaries on cold-blooded killers, coupled with a docudrama on the infamous Ted Bundy. Three entertaining, approximately 90-minutes features, all on one disc. True-crime fans will enjoy this.

THE SIX DEGREES OF HELTER SKELTER
The Six Degrees of Helter Skelter is a hauntingly unique retelling of the notorious Manson Family Murders. With original Manson Family music recordings, rare vintage photos of the story's major players, and never-before-seen autopsy reports, viewers are taken on an insightful exploration of over 40 key locations associated with the spree that rocked Los Angeles--and shocked the world--in August 1969.
THE TED BUNDY STORY
As an aspiring crime writer, Ann Rule (Academy AwardŽ nominee Barbara Hershey) volunteered alongside a charismatic, good-looking man at a crisis hotline while covering a string of grisly, unsolved murders. What Ann needed was an angle. What she got was the shock of a lifetime when she discovered the man beside her--Ted Bundy--was responsible for the crimes.
This is the true story of one of the most grisly crime scene investigations in the history of the United States. The grueling case--that began with a simple shoplifting arrest--unfolded clue by clue, until a shocking discovery rocked the nation: more than forty pounds of bones and five intact bodies buried on Charles Ng and Leonard Lakes' property. Each gruesome excavation confirmed that Ng and Lake were no ordinary serial killers. They were manipulative, sadistic, and had no mercy for their innocent victims. Walk alongside law enforcement, step by step, as they work to get justice for the slain.
