Netflix Goes “All-In” on Ted Bundy, Purchases Rights for ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile’

Netflix is all aboard Ted Bundy train. Coming off the wildly popular, and controversial, documentary Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, Netflix is reportedly paying a cool nine million dollars for the rights to the Ted Bundy film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile according to The Huffington Post.

The film, featuring Zac Efron as Ted Bundy, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and while it received some positive reviews, it was also shunned by some for sexualizing the serial killer while glorifying his life and grisly murders. Both the documentary and the upcoming film were directed by Joe Berlinger.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile is set to debut on Netflix this fall; you can check out the trailer below.

Stay gory my friends.
