AceShowbiz - Though it might not receive attention for the best reason, it can't be denied that "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile" is one of the most talked-about movies this year after the release of its first trailer. While Zac Efron's portrayal of Ted Bundy deserves appreciation, it's the movie depiction of the serial killer that sparked debate as it's accused of glamorizing a convicted criminal.
The controversy aside, the biopic presents the story of the real-life murderer from the perspective of his girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer (Lily Collins), who struggled to accept the reality of her boyfriend's murders and rapes. So instead of highlighting grisly details of his violent actions, the movie will show how he interacts with those around him and utilizes his charm and often manipulative ways to gain their trust. Directed by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Joseph Berlinger, the movie is believed to be in good hands to present facts rather than fictions.
