A new scene from Sky Cinema shows just why critics are praising Zac Efron’s performance as Ted Bundy in “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile”.
The Netflix film stars Efron and Lily Collins as Bundy’s girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer, as well as John Malkovich, Jim Parsons, and Haley Joel Osment, among others. A new scene from the film has made its way on YouTube showcasing Efron’s restraint when playing the infamous serial killer.
The scene features Efron and Collins in a diner, following Bundy’s initial arrest and release on bail. Bundy gets his daughter an ice cream and misleads his girlfriend into thinking he was framed. “Either I’m going crazy, or I’m being set up,” Bundy tells Kloepfer.
“Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile” premiered at Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 26. The film has received mixed reviews, but Efron’s performance, in particular, has been lauded.
