Zac Efron as Ted Bundy, Netflix’s New Ted Bundy Movie Is Finally Out, The Exact Breakdown Of Ted Bundy’s Murder Trials. Fact-checking ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile’. Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile Is a Showcase for Zac Efron, and Not Much Else.
For “High School Musical” fans, the idea of Efron stepping into “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile” (streaming on Netflix and in select theaters Friday) seems far-fetched. At the time, Bundy was in prison, and Boone was his biggest supporter. The pair had become friends years earlier at work. Boone dedicated herself to working as his advocate when he was in prison, and did not think Bundy was guilty of his crimes.
In the book, Kloepfer tells the story of their relationship from the beginning. When Kloepfer and Bundy first met, she was a single mother to a young daughter, Tina, and Bundy was charming and someone she was instantly attracted to. There may be no one better suited to do a movie about serial killer Ted Bundy than director Joe Berlinger, since for most of his career, he’s been making landmark work focused on true crime.
Though he would go on to confess to over 30 murders, with most experts agreeing his actual number of victims is far greater, Extremely Wicked chose to show just one of his murders play out on-screen, something a viewer may not have expected when they pressed play on a movie about the infamous serial killer.
