Zac Efron has had quite a trajectory, from high school heartthrob to notorious serial killer.
On May 3rd, Extremely Wicked, Shocking Evil and Vile will make its debut on Netflix with Efron himself in the role of Ted Bundy, who murdered more than 30 people.
The movie reportedly is "the best performance of [Zac Efron]'s career thus far" and has received mostly positive reviews.
However, some people are accusing Efron of glamorizing Bundy.
But Efron himself was not willing to accept this narrative that he was "glamorizing" Bundy.
"The goal was a very challenging one and I'm thrilled that it turned out the way that it did," he said, on Ellen. "I am not into portraying a serial killer or anybody of this nature or glamorizing them in any way...it does not glamorize the killing. This is an important thing for people to hear."

"Ted Bundy was a clean-cut, white dude, white person, so talk about white privilege. What he got away with back then, nobody would be able to do today."
Optimistic, but true?
Friday night, you can terrify yourself by watching your childhood crush play one of the most evil serial killers in American history.
Don't say we didn't warn you.
