Finally! Here’s when you can watch Zac Efron in the Ted Bundy biopic

Save the date, people.

It’s one of the most anticipated releases of the year and we finally have a date for it.

If, like the rest of us, you’ve become hooked on true crime this year you’ll have been impatiently waiting for Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, the Ted Bundy biopic starring Zac Efron.

Netflix documentary The Ted Bundy Tapes whetted our appetites earlier this year and we’re buzzing to see how the former Disney star handled playing a notoriously charming serial killer.

Shockingly Evil and Vile looks at the life of Bundy, who sexually assaulted and killed over 30 women in the US during the 1970s, burying their bodies in remote mountain locations.

The story is told through the eyes of his girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer (Lily Collins), as she begins to realise the truth about him.

Kloepfer and Bundy were together for several years and she and her young daughter were a part of his life while many of his crimes were committed.

The film premiered at Sundance Film Festival last year but has yet reach mass audiences.

It was announced last month that Netflix had bought the rights to the film – but that it was holding off on releasing it until the autumn to give it a chance for next year’s awards season.

Happily, viewers here will get a chance to see it a lot sooner than that.

Sky Cinema has announced that it will be making Shockingly Evil and Vile available from Sunday 5 May, reports Cosmopolitan.

It’s enough to make you upgrade your Sky package, TBH.
