Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile ½

If you're a serial killer story lover like myself, you might expect this to be a movie that gives you some insight into Ted Bundy's home life, show you where he went for his murders and theorize on the brutality he committed all while displaying a face of a charming law student. Given the recent Ted Bundy confession tapes, I don't blame you for assuming such a thing. You'd still be completely wrong. This romanticized Bundy's relationship with Elizabeth Kloepfer. She's the one that actually turns him in and wrote a memoir later that described what tipped her off (a weapon in his car, the fact that he matched the description of the alleged killer, Plaster of Paris...) and covering the verbal and sometimes physical abuse in their relationship, the movie NEVER goes over this. In fact, they skip so fast between time and don't even dare cover any of the murders except to use actual news clips to let you know that at this and that point in the movie, he was caught, he's going to court, ope! Oh no, he escaped! Oh wait, he's caught again...and so on, and so forth until I was drooling into my pillow.

Needless to say, I found it a great disappointment.
