Ted Bundy biopic Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile arrives at the Sundance Film Festival on January 26, with Zac Efron portraying the depraved serial killer. The film recounts Bundy’s crimes through the filter of his former longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer (Lily Collins), who refused to believe her beau capable of deeds like necrophilia and homicide.
Two days prior to that film’s debut, Netflix will release the four-episode documentary series Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes. The footage includes interviews with Bundy during his time in prison, as well as courtroom and news footage. Director Joe Berlinger (Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory) clearly decided to let Bundy’s own words speak for him instead of distilling it from recollections made by others.
The trailer is just as unsettling as Bundy’s violations and as off-putting as his smile.
