She said she doesn't have a problem with him playing the serial killer, and even though the actor is a known sex symbol, Stapley says "that is what Ted Bundy kind of was" too.

Kathy Kleiner Rubin, a survivor of Ted Bundy's attack on a Florida sorority, is addressing the controversy surrounding Zac Efron's portrayal of the convicted serial killer in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.

Speaking to People, the director said that he was intrigued by how Bundy did not exhibit traits typical of a serial killer.

The trailer for Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile has just been released.

FSIS is advising consumers to purge their freezers of the affected product as the contamination is considered a high health risk. Officials said consumers who have bought the products and frozen them should either return or throw them away.

Kleiner Rubin said this is how Bundy was to those who didn't know about his bad nature. "And when they do say positive and wonderful things about him...that's what they saw, that's what Bundy wanted you to see".

After committing a series of horrifying murders and rapes, Ted Bundy was executed by electric chair in January 1989.

The film, which chronicles everything from Bundy's heinous crimes to his trial, is told from the viewpoint of his girlfriend Elizabeth "Liz" Kloepfer, played here by Lily Collins, who for years refused to believe that her boyfriend was guilty.

Well, apparently reactions to Conversations with a Killer aren't quite what Netflix expected. While she agrees that the film does glorify Bundy more than she thought it would, she adds that it is also important for people to observe and understand that despite being a family man, he was capable of committing awful crimes. "I think the movie does glorify 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 flawless son", she explained "I think hopefully it will make women-mainly that's my heart, to care for the women-to be more aware of their surroundings and to be cautious. In your gut, if you feel that something doesn't feel right, just say no".
