Notorious killer, rapist, kidnapper and necrophiliac Ted Bundy is very much in fashion at the moment after Netflix’s docuseries Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes and the recent trailer for the Zac Efron-starring Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. This surge of interest in him has resulted in Netflix having to explain to viewers that convicted serial murderers are not the best people to get horny over (which has resulted in a feud between Bundy and Venom fans), led sickos to try and track down Bundy’s daughter and now sent legions of gawkers to a house he once lived at.
Between 1974 and 1975, Bundy resided in Room #2 at the Utah residence. There’s a possibility he may’ve brought some of his future victims to the address, too, as he used the fire escape on the back of the house to slip in and out without anyone noticing, and there’s a sinister looking cellar that the police searched for evidence after Bundy was arrested. For years, the place has attracted the odd curious true crime pilgrim, but with Bundyfever hotting up, the neighborhood’s getting pretty busy.

TMZ is reporting that fans are surrounding the house and taking lots of photos, with a particular interest in the notorious Room #2, which is now Room #5 and has a tenant living in it. The constant attention and tourists has begun to piss off the current residents, who feel that their privacy is under assault and have started to keep their curtains drawn at all times. I’d imagine that once this current craze dies down, things will begin to return to normal for them, but who knows?
Of course, the moment people start forgetting about Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, the Zac Efron film will release, so if I was them, I’d bite the bullet, capitalize on the craze and start charging for tours of the Bundy Death House.
