"Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile" premiered this weekend on Netflix. Many have been waiting for this movie to come out because of Zac Efron. What nobody expected was how convincing he would be.
The movie is depicted from Ted Bundy's long-time girlfriends perspective. It shows the trials and tribulations she went through during his arrests, trials, and eventually death.
Just for starters, Efron shares very similar looks to Bundy. Efron studied so in depth that side by side comparisons make it eerily the same. Put Efron in the clothes that Bundy wore for important moments in his life, and you have an indistinguishable look.
One of the major things that made Ted Bundy a notorious killer was the charm. It's why many people didn't believe that he was capable of killing many people. He used it to his advantage and was good at it.
Zac Efron also has that natural charm. It comes out in every movie he does, which is why he made such a good Ted Bundy. He's just a naturally likable guy which is why his acting as Bundy didn't seem forced at all.
The whole time you watch this movie, the only thing you can think of is that's Troy Bolton playing a serial killer. It's weird for his long-time fans to see a different side in his acting career.
Efron never once made Bundy look like a good guy as many biopics do. He portrayed him exactly as he was and how the world saw him. It makes him that much more of an amazing actor because he showed Bundy for who he was.
Zac Efron was the perfect person to have been chosen to play this role. His acting and looks were spot on and made the film come to life.
