New Trailer for Berlinger's 'Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, & Vile'
"This is about catching a monster." Netflix has released the second official trailer for Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, which first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year receiving quite a bit of (good and bad) attention. This film tells the story of Ted Bundy, one of the most notorious serial killers in history. He lived in Seattle, Washington, but traveled around America killing young women in multiple states and consistently denying the charges. A chronicle of his crimes, told from the perspective of his longtime girlfriend, who refused to believe the truth about him for years. Starring Zac Efron as Ted, and Lily Collins as Liz, with a cast including Kaya Scodelario, John Malkovich, Jeffrey Donovan, Dylan Baker, Haley Joel Osment, and Jim Parsons. The film is scary in that it shows how easily he got away with killing so many, and how women fell for his looks despite knowing he's a brutal killer. Terrifying.
Second official trailer for Joe Berlinger's Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, on YouTube:
1969. Ted (Zac Efron) is crazy-handsome, smart, charismatic, affectionate. And cautious single mother Liz Kloepfer (Lily Collins) ultimately cannot resist his charms. For her, Ted is a match made in heaven, and she soon falls head over heels in love with the dashing young man. A picture of domestic bliss, the happy couple seems to have it all figured out … until, out of nowhere, their perfect life is shattered. Ted is arrested and charged with a series of increasingly grisly murders. Concern soon turns to paranoia—and, as evidence piles up, Liz is forced to consider that the man with whom she shares her life could actually be a psychopath. Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile is directed by American producer / filmmaker Joe Berlinger, director of the film Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2, as well as many TV projects and lots of docs previously. The screenplay is by Michael Werwie. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Netflix will release Berlinger's Extremely Wicked in select theaters + streaming May 3rd.
