TrailerWatch: “EXTREMELY WICKED SHOCKINGLY EVIL AND Vile” presents Zac Efron as Ted Bundy

And I’ve gotta say it’s pretty convincing so far. Efron gets that blend of guy-next-door and Stanner Supreme Bundy seemed to have in historical photos. Synopsis!

A chronicle of the crimes of Ted Bundy, from the perspective of his longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer, who refused to believe the truth about him for years.

Vile seems to have the historical 411 down, including those horrible bow ties Bundy wore in court. (The 70s, amirite?) And it’s good to see Westworld alum Angela Sarafyan playing the BFF to Lily Collins’ Liz.

Vile hits theaters this year, with a debut at Sundance tomorrow.
