“At first, I doubted whether I was a serial killer they had to play,” says the ‘High School Musical’actor to Variety. “I already have a lot of gory horror movies seen, so I had not so much sense. But I was, however, intrigued by the psychological aspect of Ted Bundy.”
“This film is about him as a person,” explains Efron. “Somebody I might be friends could have been. He could very well manipulate. The film is also about a love story with a unique perspective told. This is why I stand completely behind this project. The fact that we look alike and same features is just a fluke.”
He gave, just before he in the electric chair had to sit down, that he 36 women and girls had been murdered in the 70s. He was in 1989 executed. A lot of critics find that his deeds and his charismatic appearance be glorified in the film.
