Synopsis: 1969. Ted (Zac Efron) is crazy-handsome, smart, charismatic, affectionate. And cautious single mother Liz Koepfler (Lily Collins) 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.

A NOTE FROM THE COMPOSER

The first piece that I wanted to do in EXTREMELY WICKED - to me the one thing that was like a subtext and not present in the shooting - was the voices of all these women that have been killed. And I thought musically if I can sort of conjure up an image of that or an homage to all the victims, then that would be something that I would be really interested in doing. I took a piece of Mozart's Queen of the Night aria, which is known for its purity and beauty and I thought it's a great way to represent the victims and then sort of do my own take on it. Like a much darker take of the piece and try to use that for this long sequence at the end where it talks about all the victims after the verdict is read and Joe loved it.
