EXTREMELY WICKED is shockingly tasteful

Commentary, Film and Television

When a splashy trailer for Netflix’s star-studded Ted Bundy biopic dropped earlier this year, it set off a firestorm of controversy.

The tightly-edited clip for Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile suggested a tongue-in-cheek approach to the sordid story, prompting comparisons to a heist movie and accusations that the film was glorifying Bundy. (The fact that the notorious serial killer was to be played by former teen idol Zac Efron certainly contributed to that impression.)
