Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

Biography Crime Drama


 

When he was first arrested, Ted Bundy's girlfriend refused to believe he was guilty. As more and more murders were attributed to him, her belief in him crumbled.

"Extremely Wicked, Shocking Evil, and Vile" does not live up to its name. What should be a character study of a sociopath ends up as more of a look inside the life of the person Ted was closest to, his girlfriend. This production seems almost afraid of the subject matter it's meant to be covering, skirting around details of the actual crimes, rendering the story bland and boring. A capable cast does their best with what they're given, but overall this is a lacklustre experience. Bite me.
