Zac Efron's new film "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile," about serial killer Ted Bundy, premiered at Sundance last weekend.
Bundy confessed to raping and murdering 30 women and girls, escaped from jail twice, but was executed in January 1989. The films and Zac Efron have been criticized for romanticizing Bundy.

Some people believe this is how he got away with his murders for as long as he did, because people were hesitant to suspect him.
TMZ spoke to Kathy Kleiner Rubin, who Bundy attacked at Florida State University's Chi Omega house in 1978."I don't have a problem with people looking at it, as long as they understand that what they're watching wasn't a normal person," she said. "I believe that in order to show him exactly the way it was, it's not really glorifying him, but it's showing him, and when they do say positive and wonderful things about him, that's what they saw — that's what Bundy wanted you to see."
