  • Den Of Geek

    Its a bold and at times fascinating angle for a dramatisation of real life events that doesnt actually quite work, but takes the viewer on an interesting journey nonetheless. ( Read More )
  • Den Of Geek

    It is in the radical cognitive dissonance between perception and reality, and the perception of the audience versus the perception of the people in Teds life, where Berlinger has made an entire movie. ( Read More )
  • Its particularly disappointing that Extremely Wicked doesnt work considering that Zac Efron is giving it his all here. ( Read More )
  • There is something basically unsatisfactory about this glassy eyed biopic of the satanic dreamboat Bundy. ( Read More )
  • The film essentially indulges in the same act of willful distractedness as Ted Bundys admirers. ( Read More )
