Last May, we reported the news that Zac Efron would be playing Ted Bundy in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile, a biopic of the notorious serial killer from Joe Berlinger, co-director of the Paradise Lost movies. And if that wasn’t enough to short-circuit the brains of the not-insignificant number of Zac Efron fans who are also into true crime (Hint: They both have largely female fan bases), yesterday Efron tweeted out a picture of himself on the set of the film as Bundy, and, yep, we can totally see it:


Of course, it was the narcissistic, sociopathic Bundy’s good looks—that, and a fake cast or sling—that helped him lure women who resembled his ex-fiancee into his 1968 Volkswagen Beetle, where he would kidnap them and take them to a remote area to murder them and do unspeakable things to their corpses. It’s an extremely fucked-up story, one that’s been documented at length many places, including in Ann Rule’s seminal true-crime book The Stranger Beside Me and starting at the 36:42 mark below.
