In his biopic – Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile – director Joe Berlinger seeks to peel away the layers of Bundy’s mask, revealing the web of deception he created before his eventual capture and trial. High School Musical star Zac Efron leads the film alongside Lily Collins, who plays his girlfriend, Liz Koepfler.

Here, in our extended Backstage podcast, Berlinger, Efron and Collins tell Sky News why the film should not be classed as “murder porn”, how Bundy used his privilege to get away with murder and how his televised trial kicked off our obsession with real crime.

:: The Ted Bundy biopic is in cinemas now, and on Sky Cinema
