Monsters or serial killers?

A little compare and contrast project inspired by The Murderer is Still with Us and the question over what else to call its killer - English and Italian language wikipedia entries on the same topic and Italian multiple murderers:

One point made here is that "Serial killer entered the popular vernacular in large part due to the well-publicized crimes of Ted Bundy and David Berkowitz in the middle years of that decade." - i.e. after the main giallo boom of the early 1970s.
