True crime portrayed in mainstream media is definitely trending right now, so we're not surprised that this story has gained so much momentum... not to mention that Zac's good looks and charm have brought a new perspective to Ted Bundy, but that is what's so extremely worrying about it all.
So worrying, that Netflix had to remind people to stop thirsting over a serial killer.
The topic has been a very popular one online for a few days now, so finally, Zac has responded to it all.
"Initially, I had reservations about playing a serial killer," Zac told Variety.
"I've seen people make horror films like this before, and it seems like an aggressive play to separate yourself from a perceived image."
He added: "This movie was really about a human being, somebody that perhaps I would have been friends with. And a love story from a very unique perspective.
"I’ve never seen that before. It’s intriguing to me. I think it’s more psychological and even more kind of a mindf*ck."
Speaking to E! News Zac said: "The most exciting thing for me was being able to sort of lend that Ted Bundy charisma to the part."
"I hope that comes across the most."
Well, apparently it has. Since the movie debuted at Sundance Film Festival, it has copped RAVE reviews, mostly due to Zac's performance.
Even real-life survivor of Ted Bundy, Kathy Kleiner Rubin, has defended the biopic.
She told TMZ: "I don’t have a problem with people looking at it, as long as they understand that what they’re watching wasn’t a normal person. I believe that in order to show him exactly the way he was, it’s not really glorifying him, 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 them to see. It was picked up as that.
"The movie does glorify him more than I think he 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."
Kathy added: "Hopefully it will make women to be more aware of their surroundings and be cautious."
