Ted Bundy’s Sentencing Scene | Extremely Wicked

 

 

True crime is one of the hottest genres in media today. All manner of podcasts, TV shows, movies, books, and more are being created faster than Buffalo Bill could lower a bucket into a hole. Netflix has been especially keen to pump out serial killer content, with shows like Mindhunter and documentaries like Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes hitting the service. The latter preceded a biopic about Ted Bundy called Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, which starred Zac Efron as the serial killer.

Most of the criticism of Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, comes down to the way the story was told. Critics say that it’s too soft on Ted Bundy and too much of a love story. It kind of makes Bundy into an anti-hero when in reality there was nothing redeeming about him. He was, as the judge at his sentencing called him and the producers named the film from, “extremely wicked, shockingly evil and vile.” cinemablend.com
