No, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile is not a sequel to Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, despite the titles’ uncannily similar overuse of adverbs. It’s a movie about Ted Bundy from a somewhat new perspective—you know, just in case you needed an escape from the horrors of modern life.
Two Screeners planted themselves on the couch to watch this for you, though, so the least you can do is tune in to see if you should do the same. Once you’ve done that, head over to Facebook or Twitter and see if you can convince Chris that it’s better than Hannibal. Spoiler alert: You can’t.
