Overview

A remarkably self-deprecating entry in the USA network's off-and-on Ann Rule Presents series of fact-based films, The Stranger Beside Me details how Ann Rule Barbara Hershey, a smart and savvy veteran crime reporter, allowed herself to be bamboozled by baby-faced serial killer Ted Bundy Billy Campbell. Working side by side with Bundy as a volunteer at a Seattle rape crisis center in 1971, Rule had no clue that the personable and charming young man was responsible for one the most terrifying sex-murder sprees of the 20th century. Even after suspicion fell upon Bundy, Rule was initially willing to give him the benefit of the doubt -- as, alas, were so many law enforcement officials of the era. But once the truth was known, Rule embarked upon her own mea culpa campaign by going after Bundy with every resource at her disposal. Based on Rule's 1983 bestseller of the same name, The Stranger Beside Me originally aired March 21, 2003.

    How could Ann Rule sanction this abysmal adaptation of such a groundbreaking book? With only 88 minutes to work with, its understandable that some incidents would be truncated, but 90% of the details are wrong. Bundy got most of his victims in their bedrooms as they were sleeping. This movie has them being abducted in a tennis club parking garage. No mention of Lake Sammamish or the murders in Colorado, his first escape from a jail in Aspen or that his final victim was a 12 year old girl. Alot of liberties are taken with the facts. The principal actors deliver credible performances, but the cold hard truth is once Ted Bundy was incarcerated his only contact with Ann Rule was by telephone or through letters. Very frustrating adaption of an excellent book.
