Zac Efron stars in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. This inside look at serial killer Ted Bundy is sure to be the talk of the town.
Netflix has already had to ask viewers not to romance a serial killer (we know its Zac Efron…but still the story), which comes as no surprise after all the lust policing they’ve had to do with Penn Badgley in You.
This story takes a look at serial killer Ted Bundy’s persual of a young single mother in northern California. It’s 1969 and Ted (Zac Efron) is crazy-handsome, smart, charismatic, affectionate. Meanwhile, cautious single mother Liz Kloepfer (Lily Collins) ultimately cannot resist his charms. For her, Ted is a match made in heaven, and she soon falls head over heels in love with the dashing young man. A picture of domestic bliss, the happy couple seems to have it all figured out until, out of nowhere, their perfect life is shattered. Ted is arrested and charged with a series of increasingly grisly murders. Concern soon turns to paranoia and, as evidence piles up, Liz is forced to consider that the man with whom she shares her life could actually be a psychopath.
We’re always eager to see a great biopic. In this case we are scratching our heads in the ofice why Netlfix chose to edit this trailer like a teen rom-com. It looks promising, but our verdict is out until we’ve seen it. The trailer is giving us mixed feelings here at the office.
