Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile was one of the buzziest titles to come out of the Sundance Film Festival, due to its sordid subject matter and what’s been dubbed a “career-best performance” by star Zac Efron. But this Ted Bundy biopic will take a while before it hits U.S. theaters, making its way to the U.K. first.

Extremely Wicked Shockingly Evil and Vile Review

What if someone you loved, someone you thought you knew, someone who seemed so charming and caring, turned out to be an absolute monster? Would you immediately believe it – or would you deny the horrible truth with every fiber of your being? It’s hard to know the answer to that question if it’s never happened to you. An outsider might assume that accepting the truth would be cut and dry. But life doesn’t work that way. And the truth can be a slippery thing.

For four years, Ted Bundy cut a bloody path across America, brutally murdering young women in unspeakable ways. He did it brazenly, not even bothering to use a pseudonym when approaching potential victims in public. He was so entirely sure of his own charm that even when he was captured, and the evidence was stacked against him, he seemed absolutely certain he’d be set free. After all, who could believe a man like Ted Bundy could be a serial killer? That’s the question at the heart of Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, a portrait not just of Bundy, but of the people around him – the people who failed to recognize his true, terrible nature.

Extremely Wicked Shockingly Evil and Vile Trailer

Between 1974 and 1978, Ted Bundy murdered at least 30 (possibly many more) women in seven states. He was put on trial. It was a circus. He was convicted. And he was also very handsome for a deranged serial killer.

And now, he’s being played by Zac Efron in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, a film that chronicles Bundy’s relationship with Liz Kendall (Lily Collins), his highly publicized trial, and beyond. The first trailer for the film has arrived and you can watch it below.

Sundance 2019 logo

While 2018’s edition of the Sundance Film Festival might not have launched any major Oscar heavyweights, it turned out a steady stream of modest summer hits from first time directors (Hereditary, Sorry to Bother You, Eight Grade) as well as three non-fiction films that were blockbusters by documentary standards (Three Identical Strangers, RBG, Won’t You Be My Neighbor?). Plus, countless Sundance selections remained critical favorites that stuck around in the conversation through the end of last year (Wildlife, Minding the Gap, Hale County This Morning, This Evening).

This is all to say, never believe anyone who tells you that a given year at Sundance is a “weak” one. Fluctuations in programming focuses and projects submissions rarely yield a continuous trajectory for a festival. That may prove doubly true for the 2019 edition of the Sundance Film Festival, which is the first under Kim Yutani’s leadership as director of programming following the long reign of Trevor Groth. This year’s festival looks noticeably more inclusive and diverse, both in terms of the stories being told and the people who are telling them. The lineup pulls less obviously from established festival favorites in favor of providing a platform to emerging artists who may have only a scattered short or feature to their name.

There’s going to be a lot to follow out of this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and thankfully /Film will have several writers on the ground in Park City to report out the big finds and stories. But for those of us who aren’t making the trek up into the mountains of Utah for Sundance, there’s still a way to be a part of the festival.
