People shouldn't be up in arms about Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile casting Zac Efron as Ted Bundy, as their appearances and demeanor are strikingly similar. Actors express ideas and portray characters in theater, film, television, and other performing arts media. Zac Efron is an actor that has proved his versatility and dedication to portraying many different types of people; therefore, making him a good candidate.


The fact that people are in outrage about this trailer romanticizing Ted Bundy almost proves the point of how shocking it was that someone who is similar to Zac Efron, charming and some would consider him good looking, could have done something so "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile". Bundy's looks may be debatable, but his actions are not. This movie isn't glorifying a serial killer; rather it's giving its viewers the same feeling that everyone else in the country had during this time. It hits the nail on the head with how people aren't always who you think they are.

I want to leave you with this, as we are watching this new movie or the tapes on Netflix remember not to take everything you see in these for truth. Instead, do the research yourself and formulate your own opinions on this tragedy that struck the US. And above all else, let us remember the victims and their families who are still affected by this. The following link highlights the accomplishments these women hope to achieve, but where unable to due to this psychopath. These women all had hopes and dreams. They should all have movies made about them; try to remember what this monster took away. Be respectful of others and think twice before posting or commenting on anything: a general rule for life.
