The child from Sixth Sense appears in Zac Efron's new Ted Bundy film, 'Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile'.
Zac Efron's new Ted Bundy film, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, has caused quite a stir since its release earlier this week.
And while no one can agree on how the film portrays the gruesome crimes of Bundy, there is one element of the new Netflix movie that everyone is on the same page about: Sixth Sense's Haley Joel Osment looks both completely different, and also exactly the same as he did as a creepy kid who could see dead people.
1999 was a simpler time, nay, a happier time. Blue eyeshadow was a thing, inflatable chairs were on everyone's wish list and if you didn't have a pair of spangly Sketchers you were cancelled.
It was also around the time when the DVD was created, and anyone with a player was considered "posh".
One of the first major films to be released on DVD was The Sixth Sense, an intense supernatural thriller starring Bruce Willis that, arguably, changed cinema forever with the most dramatic and unpredictable endings everrrr. It also had many people rewatching clips of a bloody door handle within an inch of its life.
But beyond his breakthrough role as Cole Sear, a troubled child who was haunted by ghosts, and portraying Forrest Gump's son, actor Haley Joel Osment hasn't really appeared in any massive titles.
So those who tuned in to Zac Efron's new Ted Bundy movie were shook when they kind-of recognised the bearded man child who starred opposite Collins, playing Elizabeth Kloepfer's co-worker.
