Movie Info

Elizabeth Kloepfer refused for years to acknowledge that her boyfriend was a serial killer. Her partner, Ted Bundy, became famous in the 1980s for committing several heinous crimes against women, despite her disbelief, who watched passively as the murders were unleashed from a very unique perspective.

It's particularly disappointing that Extremely Wicked doesn't work considering that Zac Efron is giving it his all here.

[N]arratives help us sift the meaningful harbingers from the detritus of life. Extremely Wicked discards them entirely.

More sad than salacious, it's the rare film about a criminal that offers human details without humanizing a man who so many agree was a monster.

Berlinger's aim, it seems, is to cast doubt on whether or not Bundy actually murdered anybody until the very end of the movie to maintain suspense. Good luck, Joe!

Extremely Wicked can't seem to commit to its ostensibly limited POV.

If the narrative film only exists to give us the unsettling sliminess of Efron as Bundy, it won't be a total waste. But it's not much of a movie, either.
