Ever since his performance in the Lord of the Rings film trilogy, Elijah Wood has become more of a name in horror, seemingly by his own design. After having a breath since the dual release of features centered around Theodore Bundy, now comes a different story centered around his last days and the chase for his ultimate confession.
THIS is the sort of trailer that functions, almost, a it’s own product, an exercise in building suspense:
Elijah Wood stars as Bill Hagmaier, and Luke Kirby plays Bundy. After the recent swing in popularity for documentaries and docu-series regarding serial killers, this has the potential to touch a nerve while exploring the risks of investment in such a fascination (something akin to a more sensationalized, compartmentalized retelling of the arc of ‘Holden Ford’ in ‘Mindhunter’ season one with Ed Kemper).
This will be released in select US theaters + on VOD starting August 27th, 2021.
