The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
1969. Ted is crazy-handsome, smart, charismatic, affectionate. And cautious single mother Liz Kloepfer ultimately cannot resist his charms. For her, Ted is a match made in heaven, and she soon falls head over heels in love with the dashing young man. A picture of domestic bliss, the happy couple seems to have it all figured out … until, out of nowhere, their perfect life is shattered. Ted is arrested and charged with a series of increasingly grisly murders. Concern soon turns to paranoia—and, as evidence piles up, Liz is forced to consider that the man with whom she shares her life could actually be a psychopath.
The film also stars Lily Collins, John Malkovich, Jim Parsons, Angela Sarafyan, Jeffrey Donovan, Grace Victoria Cox, Kaya Scodelario, Haley Joel Osment, Dylan Baker, Terry Kinney, James Hetfield and Brian Geraghty.
Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile doesn’t have a cinematic release date yet, but will premiere at Sundance Film Festival on the 26th January 2019.
