The first trailer for the upcoming movie on the American serial killer Ted Bundy has definitely been fiercely debating where people worried that the film is glorifying its deadly legacy and could hurt those hit by his crimes.
Extremely Evil, Shocking Evil and Vile premiere at the Sundance Film Festival over the weekend, and stars Zac Efron as the charismatic killer. Authorities believe Bundy murdered 30 women or more before being executed in Florida State Prison in 1989.
Omron spoke of Efron telling Variety that he had originally reservations about taking the role.
"I've seen people make horror movies like this before, and it seems like an aggressive game to separate yourself from a perceived image. And it has many killings and hacking and slashing. I think I've seen it before many times, "he said.
As the recorded film in March last year, Efron Indie Wire told that the film did not glorify Bundy.
"It's very interesting. I think the movie itself is deep," Efron said. "It doesn't really tell Ted Bundy. He wasn't a person who was glorified. It simply tells a story and kind of how the world could be charmed by this guy who was notoriously evil and the worrying attitude that many people were put into was the world laid in. It was fun to go and experiment in the real world. "
Extremely evil, Shockingly Evil and Vile has no confirmed release date and is currently seeking American distribution.
