  • Lots of people are seriously angry over the trailer for Zac Efron's Ted Bundy biopic

The film is directed by veteran documentary maker Joe Berlinger, who also directed the Netflix documentary series Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.

The first teaser trailer has been released for Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, in which the 31-year-old heartthrob stars as Ted Bundy, one of the world's most notoriously handsome and charismatic serial killers.

The film tells the tale of Bundy's horrific crimes from the perspective of his girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer, who's played by Lily Collins. Prior to his 1989 execution, he confessed to 30 homicides committed in seven states.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

A trailer for the movie was recently released, but a scene where Efron takes his shirt off - revealing his. umm, well-sculpted body - left viewers concerned about the casting for the film. Where you expecting this guy to be evil 24/7??? Clearly, it was going to take a talented actor to pull off a role such as this but if the first reviews for Extremely Wicked are any indication, then it seems that Efron was definitely up to the task.

With seven of the ten reviews of the film coming in as positive, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile is now sitting at 70 percent on Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometer.

It comes after some praised Efron for looking "hot" in the trailer. Efron is savagely convincing in the most psychologically-layered performance of his career. Owen Gleiberman, in Daily Variety, called it "an honestly unsettling and authentic inquiry into the question of who Ted Bundy was". "Not here for this hyper-sexualised Zac Efron film".

They continued: "No doubt many were anxious a film like Extremely Wicked would attempt to glorify or justify Bundy's crimes, but the film does no such thing".

In this combination photo, Zac Efron attends the world premiere of "The Greatest Showman" in NY on December 8, 2017, left, and serial killer Theodore Bundy appears in Tallahassee, Fla., on July 28, 1978 after being indicted on two counts of first degree murder, three counts of attempted murder and two counts of burglary in the Chi Omega slaying.

However, in their opinion, the film did not nail perspective and seemed to be more of a recreation of archival footage than anything else.

As an oddity of the serial killer genre, some of Berlinger's choices ring more as engagingly unusual than unsuccessful, such as a number of 1970s music cues cut with Bundy's antics.

"We're giving the audience the same experience Liz had in their encounter with Ted", Berlinger said.
