Metallica Classic Song Heard In Ted Bundy Film with James Hetfield

If you are a fan of Metallica or serial killers, you have likely already seen the new Ted Bundy biopic on Netflix, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, And Vile, which has James Hetfield in a small dramatic role or the first time in his career. Directed by Academy Award nominee Joe Berlinger (Paradise Lost), he cast Metallica legend James Hetfield in 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. The film has a pivotal scene in which you can hear Metallica classic ‘The Four Horsemen’. This is not the first time the Kill Em All song has been in a movie, it also featured in 2016’s X-Men Apocalypse. The rest of the film features a 70s soundtrack such as Tommy James ‘Crimson And Clover’ (covered later by Joan Jett) and ‘Lucky Man’ by Emerson, Lake, and Palmer’s and also a Beethoven reference that might be a nod to Hannibal Lecter in Silence of The Lambs. Berlinger has been familiar with Hetfield and Metallica since he directed the Paradise Lost documentary series, co-directed the Metallica documentary film Some Kind of Monster, and co-wrote the book about the doc, Metallica: This Monster Lives. Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil stars Zac Efron as Bundy and tells the story of Bundy and his longtime girlfriend, played by Lily Collins, who at the time had no knowledge of the crimes.
