Insanely Disturbing Documentary Drops Tonight — Ted Bundy Netflix

The actor ventures out of his comfort zone in the first trailer for "Extremely Wicked, Shocking Evil and Vile", where he'll play infamous serial killer Ted Bundy.

Netflix has advised people against watching their new Ted Bundy documentary alone.

Unlike The Deliberate Stranger, which romanticizes the captivating personality that helped Bundy attract his victims, the new Netflix series thankfully doesn't try to glorify him when mentioning his good looks and charms. Zac completely transforms into the sadistic serial killer, who murdered more than 30 people during his reign of terror.

All four episodes of Conversations With A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes are streaming on Netflix now.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile debuts January 26 at the Sundance Film Festival.

The movie also focuses on Ted's murder trial, where Ted shockingly represented himself.

And with the series set to hit our screens at the end of the month, audiences won't have long to wait until they get the chance to look into the mind of the notorious killer. What I thought would be an intense, dark true crime movie is being sold nearly like a black comedy, set to the pace of something like AMERICAN MADE.

I remember watching Evil Genius and nearly needing a couple of hours to process what just happened. They asked him to speak mostly in third person as a way to get a clearer answer from Bundy while avoiding, in his own words, "the stigma of confession".

Can I watch The Ted Bundy Tapes if I'm a true crime mega-fan? Starring Zac Efron as Ted, and Lily Collins as Liz, with a cast including Kaya Scodelario, John Malkovich, Jeffrey Donovan, Dylan Baker, Haley Joel Osment, and Jim Parsons.

A lot of attention has rightfully been paid to the countless crimes Bundy committed, but what brought out his confessions is often unexplored. From February 1974 to February 1978, Ted Bundy murdered over 30 women and one man.
