Actor Zac Efron deviates from his usual comedic side as he transforms into notorious serial killer Ted Bundy for his role in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile. The biopic is scheduled to premiere at Sundance Film Festival over the weekend.
Starting off in 1969, the narrative is told through the eyes of Liz Kloepfer (Lily Collins), a single mother who unwittingly falls in love with Bundy. She later discovers his gruesome history, which involves murdering over 30 women, and is forced to face the truth about her longtime boyfriend. The film is directed by documentarian Joe Berlinger, who also helmed Netflix’s recent series Conversations with A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.
