I want to get this out of the way as quick as possible:
Ted Bundy was not good looking. At this point I can’t go five seconds without seeing a picture of him and it’s really hard to ignore how dangerously average-looking he is. He may have been charismatic, sure, but honestly, very un-noteworthy.
Call it an agenda, call it what you what, just don’t call it late for dinner, you know?
That’s not the point of this article. The point is that the film about Ted Bundy, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, starring Zac Efron (who does happen to be gorgeous) is coming to Netflix. That means you’ll be able to watch it without leaving the comfort of your own home.
Obviously you know the perks of Netflix.
This comes after the immense popularity of Netflix’s own true-crime documentary series Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, courtesy of director Joe Berlinger, who also directed the Zac Efron film.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix had to fork out $9 million to obtain rights for the film, warding off interest from Lionsgate and STX after it premiered at Sundance last week.
If you don’t have Netflix though, you’ll still be able to watch the film in cinemas, as Netflix plan to roll it out in various locations during awards season.
Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile is described as:
“A chronicle of the crimes of Ted Bundy, from the perspective of his longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer, who refused to believe the truth about him for years.“
Apparently we can expect the film in Autumn, which seems very long away.
