A Captivating Narrative
3 May 2019 | by chrisruiziceSee all my reviews

Throughout the film, Zac Efron's performance as Ted Bundy being cool, calm, collected and charming was spectacular. His overall performance was chilling as he provokes you to feel as though he is innocent. This movie is a look at how serial killer movies should be done. They aren't just crazies out on the street, they're your coworkers, your friends, your family. Sit back and contemplate every relationship you've had as you watch a captivating narrative on Ted Bundy's trial and later life.
