The highly anticipated Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile dropped on Netflix on May 3rd, but it's already one of the most talked about films of the year. In case you're not familiar, the film tells the story of Ted Bundy (played by Zac Efron), a notorious serial killer who brutally murdered over 30 women in the 1970s. If you've already seen the movie by now, you may be looking for something else to watch; here are 5 movies like Extremely Wicked Shockingly Evil and Vile on Netflix.
The movie has received mixed reviews so far, with some people criticizing that it gives no new information on the Ted Bundy story, or that it's glorifying his horrendous behaviour. Others think that movie was incredibly well done, and the casting (particularly Zac Efron and Lilly Collins) was spot on. Regardless of what you think, you can never have enough movies in your roster! We recommend you check these ones out next:
Paris is Us
Type: International Drama
If foreign films are your thing, Paris is Us will be right up your alley. The film is about a young woman in a brand new, passionate and exciting relationship (much like Ted Bundy's girlfriend), who also finds herself faced with the rising tension in her hometown, the city of Paris. The movie's beautiful cinematography shows audiences "a dizzying spiral of dreams, memories, and what-ifs".
Type: Independent Drama
White Girl tells the story of a young woman in New York City, who finds herself wrapped up in a lifestyle that's not as glamorous as one might think. When she meets a troubled young man and gets involved in the world of cocaine and other highs, things get very messed up, very quickly.
Type: Psychological Thriller
If you love thrillers as much as I do, Indiscretion should be your next top pick on Netflix. The movie is about Veronica, a married woman who finds herself involved in a weekend fling with an artist named Victor. What was just a one-time thing for Veronica turns into a terrifying obsession for Victor, and she quickly becomes a target of his daunting unrequited love.
Dismissed stars Dylan Sprouse, which may be reason enough for some people to watch it, but if that's not enough, the plot will definitely convince you. The movie is about Lucas (played by Sprouse), a new transfer student who takes his studies beyond seriously. He quickly finds a mentor in his English teacher, but when he doesn't get the grade he thinks he deserves, he begins to traumatize not only his teacher but everyone around him.
The Stanford Prison Experiment
Type: Drama based on Real Life
Much like Extremely Wicked, The Stanford Prison Experiment is based on a chilling true story, and it's easily one of the most interesting movies I've seen. It tells the story of a Stanford professor who was conducting a study on the psychology of incarceration. 24 male students were split into two groups - prisoners and guards, and although the experiment was supposed to be harmless, it quickly turns dangerous.
