Check out the official Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile trailer starring Zac Efron! What's surprising about the pic's first trailer, viewable above, is how light and comedic the tone is for a movie about a real life murderer, but then again, the point seems to be that Bundy didn't have a sinister air about him.

Synopsis: A chronicle of the crimes of Ted Bundy, from the perspective of his longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer, who refused to believe the truth about him for years.

So ended the life of one of the nation's most prolific serial killers, but not the story that continues to fascinate.

She was so enamored with the serial killer that she even said "yes" when he proposed to her during that time.

But the first footage from the film shows Efron in action - and how he's seemingly captured Bundy's twisted charisma.

Extremely Wicked and the release of the Netflix documentary coincide with the 30 anniversary of Bundy's execution in 1989.

His dozens of known crimes against young women, which included sexual assault, murder and necrophilia, would begin during their relationship.

Efron, however, insisted during an interview with ET last March that Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile "doesn't really glorify" the serial killer. And cautious single mother Liz Kloepfer (Lily Collins) ultimately can not resist his charms.

A description of the film reads: "A picture of domestic bliss, the happy couple seems to have it all figured out... until, out of nowhere, their ideal life is shattered". We'll know for sure when we catch it at the Sundance Film Festival this weekend (so look for our review in the coming days).

The sorority house was remodeled shortly after the murders, and to this day, sisters there aren't allowed to speak about Ted Bundy.

Zac Efron is showing off his killer transformation.
