Netflix creeped out about Ted Bundy's 'alleged hotness'

"Ted Bundy was a serial killer, rapist and necrophile who brutally murdered 30+ women with zero remorse but the marketing team of Zac Efron movie made a decision to go with this casual comical tone? whats not clicking ma'am", wrote another.

People are talking about Netflix's chilling new docuseries Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Files - but the streaming service has noticed a disturbing trend in the chatter around the series' subject, real-life serial murderer Ted Bundy.

Zac Efron at the "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile" party at DIRECTV Lodge presented by AT&T at Sundance Film Festival 2019 on January 26, 2019, in Park City, Utah. However, despite the fact that Bundy was a prolific and brutal serial killer, Netflix have had to beg users to stop romanticising him.

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".

The biopic focuses on Ted Bundy's (Efron) dual life. Director Berlinger told Newsweek he viewed some of Kloepfer's personal photo albums, and they looked identical to his own.

Bundy isn't the only killer featured on Netflix that has inspired such interest.

'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 flawless son'. 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 bad crimes.

Showing his down-to-earth side, Zac muses on the oddity of being a celebrity and says of being followed by the paparazzi: '[You've got to] stand and know that they're taking pictures and pretend that you don't.
