Netflix has even put together a series called Conversations With A Killer, a four-part series that shows the tapes of Ted Bundy.
As fascinating as the whole story is, a lot of people had a negative reaction to the trailer starring Zac Efron, as they felt it was romanticising Ted.
In the defense of the movie and Zac, it is common knowledge that Ted Bundy was a very charismatic man who charmed several women before committing the heinous crimes on them.
One of Ted's actual survivors, Kathy Kleiner Rubin, has even come forward to discuss her thoughts on the trailer.
Kathy was attacked by Bundy in her sorority at Florida State University in 1978. Surprisingly, she is at peace with Zac's portrayal of her attacker.
"I don't have a problem with people looking at it, and as long as they understand that what they're watching wasn't a normal person," she told TMZ. "I believe that in order to show him exactly the way he was, it's not really glorifying him, but it's showing him, and when they do say positive and wonderful things about him... that's what they saw, that's what Bundy wanted you to see."
Rubin added that "The movie does glorify it more than I think it should be. But like I said I think everyone should see it and understand him as what he was even when he was the perfect son. I think hopefully it will make women [...] be more aware of their surroundings and be cautious. He had different tactics that he used for people to help him get in cars or do things, and in your gut, if you just feel that something doesn't feel right, just say no."
Do you think Zac Efron is glorifying Ted Bundy?
Well, film critics aren't fussed with it. The movie was recently shown at Sundance Film Festival, and Zac was heavily praised.
"The star of the show is unquestionably Efron, who captures the charm and manipulative streak which enabled Bundy to murder over 30 women across seven states over a four year timeframe," said Little White Lies.
"Efron is savagely convincing in the most psychologically-layered performance of his career," said The Wrap.
"The actor’s persona as an attractive, clean-cut, straight white man groomed within the Disney machinery — further cemented by turns in bro-friendly comedies — has positioned him as the perfect choice to personify the kind of evil that festers beneath a wholesome façade, neatly packaged for self-preservation."
