Netflix News: Ted Bundy Biopic Drops Next Week

The long awaited biopic about serial killer Ted Bundy has been confirmed for release on Netflix next week. The new film that's already getting a great critical response has its official date. The movie will premiere on the streaming outlet on Friday, May 3rd. Told from the perspective of his ex-girlfriend, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile has been heavily promoted as the best dramatic role from Zac Efron yet. Considering his uncanny resemblance to the serial murderer, this one is going to be a very hard watch that is said to be stomach churning. 

After the huge success of their documentary, Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy tapes drove a renewed interest in the life of Ted Bundy, it was not surprising they picked up the movie when it went on the auction block. Many still think that the idea of promoting the killer will exploit his victims and their families. Yet, this might also be a way of exploring history. 

Check out the synopsis here:

A chronicle of the crimes of Ted Bundy from the perspective of Liz, his longtime girlfriend, who refused to believe the truth about him for years. Directed by Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker Joe Berlinger and starring Zac Efron, Lily Collins, Kaya Scodelario, Jeffrey Donovan, Angela Sarafyan, Dylan Baker, Brian Geraghty, Terry Kinney, Haley Joel Osment, James Hetfield, Grace Victoria Cox with Jim Parsons and John Malkovich. Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile launches on Netflix May 3, 2019.
