Zac Efron and Lily Collins star in this drama biopic directed by Joe Berlinger (Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes), which tells the story of one of America’s most notorious serial killers through the eyes of his devoted girlfriend.
Ted (Efron) is a handsome, smart, charismatic and affectionate man. Liz (Collins) is a single mother, cautious, but smitten with Ted. A picture of domestic bliss, the two seem to have it all figured out. That is until Ted is arrested and charged with a series of increasingly grisly murders. As concern turns to paranoia, Liz is forced to consider how well she knows the man she shares a life with and, as the evidence piles up, decide if Ted is truly a victim, or actually guilty as charged.
Based on the shocking true story of one of America’s most notorious serial killers, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile is a gripping and fascinating film which is anchored by an excellent central performance by Zac Efron as Ted Bundy.
