A soon-to-be-stepmom is snowed in with her fiance's two children at a remote holiday village. Just as relations finally begin to thaw between the trio, strange and frightening events ... See full summary »
Yes..there will always be controversy, expecially where a true story/serial killer is portrayed. E.g. Monster, played by the Oscar winning charlize theron. who completely changes her image to fit sucha role.
Zac does not!.. As the person he is portraying is a perfect fit! in many ways(kudos to berlinger) & does not glorify Ted at all,but rather the opposite, it finally! correctly portrays why he was so successful in having this double life, as he could charm anyone! and why no-one could/would believe he could do such a thing until his quick decline, also v well put across in this gem of a film coupled by a great cast who all show their worth. But Zac! was awsome, bringing his charismatic ways too a very eerie fit. Whilst also claiming him in the big league's as to his diversity in acting. Yes Its been done before, & quite a few times.. but not as good! & considering the deliberate stranger was one of the best fits to date, due to its accuracy (3hrs in length) this much shorter more intriguing take is a very good second, but a solid first when it comes to the portrayal of Ted. This is not just for Zac fans! But pls remember this is not a comedy or a musical. Its a very well put together true story, of a master manipulative serial killer.. coupled by a very! compelling court battle. All in all.. a very good watch!
