"No Man Of God" is the story of serial killer Ted Bundy. In 1980, Ted Bundy was sentenced to death by electrocution. In the years that followed, he agreed to disclose the details of his crimes, but only to one man. During the early days of the FBI's criminal profiling unit, FBI analyst Bill Hagmaier (Elijah Wood) met with the incarcerated Ted Bundy (Luke Kirby) in the hopes of understanding the psychology of the serial killer and providing closure for the victim's families. As Hagmaier delves into Bundy's dark and twisted mind, a strange and complicated relationship develops that neither man expected. Based on actual transcripts of interviews between Hagmaier and the incarcerated Bundy. (Gary Reber)

Special features include a making of featurette (HD 07:41) and upfront previews.

The 2.39:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, upconverted to 2160p with greater resolution and luminance, was photographed digitally and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. The picture is cinematic in a documentary interview stylized presentation. Color fidelity in the interview room of the prison is perfectly natural, Hues are natural throughout. The red blouse of Bundy's civil attorney is nicely saturated. Fleshtones are perfectly natural. Contrast is excellent, but there are no extremes, though, Bundy's hair appears deep black in some scenes. Shadow delineation is satisfying, and luminance is well balanced. Resolution, especially during closeups, which dominate the imagery, reveal intimate and nuanced facial detail. Some of the imagery is a throwback to Bundy's childhood home video footage and exhibits dated poor quality. This is a well-crafted picture that expresses realism set within the prison halls and interview room that is edgy in visual impact. Realism is the prime characteristic. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio™ 5.1-channel soundtrack is dialogue focused with excellent spatial integration and intelligibility, The synthesizer score is piercing and aggressively enveloping throughout the soundstage and the surrounds. Deep bass from the music is powerful and extends to sub-25 Hz frequencies. Foley sound effects are realistic throughout. This is an intense holosonic® soundtrack that delivers an emotional impact as the story of Bundy's killings surface. (Gary Reber)
