Ted (Efron): handsome, smart, charismatic, affectionate. Liz (Collins): a single mother, cautious, but smitten. A picture of domestic bliss, the two seem to have it all figured out. That is until Ted is arrested and charged with a series of increasingly grisly murders. As concern turns to paranoia, Liz is forced to consider how well she knows the man she shares a life with and, as the evidence piles up, decide if Ted is truly a victim, or actually guilty as charged.Directed by Academy-Award nominee Joe Berlinger (PARADISE LOST) the film also stars Kaya Scodelario (THE MAZE RUNNER trilogy), John Malkovich (DEEPWATER HORIZON), Angela Sarafyan (WESTWORLD), Jim Parsons (TV’s THE BIG BANG THEORY) and Haley Joel Osment (THE SIXTH SENSE).
Zac Efron delivers his finest performance to date as Ted Bundy.The only problem I had with this dramatised version of the widely known Bundy story was the lack of scenes actually showing us the murderous, psychotic Bundy.What remains feels like a TV movie from the ’80s that has shied away from its own subject matter.
