Oxygen has more information about the upcoming feature film. Will the movie do history justice?

So, who was the real Ted Bundy? He remains one of the most depraved, savage and brutal serial killers and rapists of all time, whose campaign of animalistic violence gripped the country in a state of sheer terror between 1974 and 1978. Ted Bundy undoubtedly changed American society. He kidnapped, raped, tortured and killed over 30 young women, the majority of

Yep, Zac Efron sure does look like Ted Bundy

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

Crime Writer Ann Rule Dies, Who Was Bizarrely Friends With Ted Bundy Before Anyone Knew He Was A Serial Killer

This Day in Crime History is a flash briefing available on Amazon Alexa. Just search OXYGEN to enable.

On July 26, 2015 crime writer Ann Rule died. She was likely most famous for authoring “The Stranger Beside Me,” a true crime novel about serial killer Ted Bundy. Ann had signed a book contract to write about a series of unsolved murders in the Seattle area. Little did she know that she already knew the killer. Yeah, you read that correctly. She knew the killer. Ted Bundy volunteered alongside her at a suicide crisis call center. The two were friends. It made for a riveting novel and is considered the most well-rounded and definitive biographies of the infamous serial killer. 

Before writing true crime novels, Ann worked as a police officer for the Seattle Police Department. She also wrote for True Detective magazine under the pen name “Andy Stack.” She went on to

The True Story Behind Ted Bundy In Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile

For decades, people all over the world have harbored an unsettling fascination with one of the most notorious American serial killers of the 20th century, and with the recent casting of Zac Efron in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, our interest in Ted Bundy is only expected to peak.

The role of the sickening killer — who was executed in Florida’s electric chair in 1989 after confessing to the rape and murder of more than 30 women — will be a definitive departure for the former Disney star who has recently been seen prancing up and down the beach in the Baywatch comedy remake. However, whereas previous adaptations of Bundy’s harrowing behavior have often been portrayed from his viewpoint, this upcoming horror flick will be different with the events of Extremely Wicked captured from the perspective of Ted’s longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth “Liz” Kloepfer.
