Directed By: Joe Berlinger
Starring: Zac Efron, Lily Collins John Malkovich.
Synopsis: A chronicle of the crimes of Ted Bundy, from the perspective of his long-time girlfriend, who refused to believe the truth about him for years.
A brave attempt by Efron to take on a more serious role in his career with his portrayal of notorious serial killer Ted Bundy unfortunately was too ambitious for me for two reasons. First reason being I get that actors want to branch out and expand their horizons and try not to get type cast but after following Zac’s cinematic life for a while I found it hard to separate him as Ted from his usual teen heartthrob persona often seen in majority of his films. Reason two, I feel as if we didn’t explore more of Zac as Ted (as the film was from his girlfriend’s perspective) we didn’t get to experience or witness his full acting capability as this deranged mass murderer instead we saw glimpses of it never the full picture. I’ve always been fascinated by the minds of people like Ted Bundy and what makes them commit such horrific acts upon the innocent and with this movie being so hyped up until its release I wasn’t fully disappointed. I hope to see more of Lily Collins projects in the future she was excellent.
