“Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile” is a movie which tells the life of the serial killer Ted Bundy. There is another hook in it for Metallica fans which the debut of James Hetfield as an actor playing the role of officer Bob Hayward, a no-nonsense Utah highway patrol veteran who was the first law enforcement officer to arrest Bundy in 1975 after pulling the killer over and discovering burglary tools in his car but wisely suspecting much worse.
Academy Award nominee Joe Berlinger (“Paradise Lost”) directed. Hetfield and Berlingerhave crossed paths before when the latter directed and produced the seminal rock-doc “Metallica: Some Kind Of Monster” along with the late Bruce Sinofsky. Berlinger also penned a book about his experiences with the band, “Metallica: This Monster Lives”.
