Episode 02: Extremely Wicked, Shocking Evil and Vile
In episode 02, Avery and Alec watch Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, the Ted Bundy biopic starring Zac Efron and Lily Collins. Before you commit to this 1 hour and 49 minute Netflix original, check out our review about what this film got wrong (casting) and what it got right (washboard abs).
In this review we cover:
Casting: Zac Efron as Ted Bundy had us feeling like maybe there was better, taller, less-buzzy choice to play one of America’s most infamous killers.
Pace and plot structure: Extremely Wicked follows the legal antics of Bundy as he refuses to admit guilt, and as his long-time girlfriend, Liz (Collins) refuses to acknowledge the mounting evidence against him.
Tone: With all the movies, podcasts, documentaries, and #OriginalContent coming out about serial killers, we wondered what this film had to offer that was different, and what tone it was trying to strike.
