The movie starts off in 1969, and Ted Bundy is supposed to be driving a 1968 VW Standard Beetle. However the VW that Bundy drives in the movie is 1973 (or later) Super Beetle. You can tell due to the curved windshield and wide trunk hood which only came on those model years. See more »
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.
