Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

United States, 2019 / 108 Mins

Director: Joe Berlinger

Starring: Zac Efron, Lily Collins

In the vein of “Catch Me if You Can” and based on true events, Zac Efron plays Ted Bundy, the world’s most notorious serial killer. The film is told through the perspective of Bundy’s longtime girlfriend, Liz (Lily Collins), who went years denying the accusations against Bundy, but ultimately turned him in to the police.

Once in police custody, Bundy pulls off a daring escape before being caught and tried for murder. Acting as his own lawyer, Bundy nearly avoids the death chamber but is ultimately convicted. Only upon Bundy’s deathbed did Liz, and the rest of the world, learn the true scope of his numerous and grizzly crimes.
