While Zac Efron makes an impressive Ted Bundy, it doesn’t save the film. While this incredibly long-titled flick does a good job re-enacting Bundy footage, it doesn’t have a strong perspective. We are forced to view the Bundy murders like the fangirls who sit behind him in court. We see his charm and charisma, but are only shown a snippet of Bundy kidnapping and attacking one, unnamed victim. Instead, it focused on a non-murdered victim (his girlfriend), while it nearly ignores the 28 women who lost their lives.

 It does get one point across: he was one smooth-talking SOB.
