Netflix urges viewers not to romanticize Ted Bundy

Netflix wants you to stop thirsting after Ted Bundy

In Cosmopolitan, Emily Tannenbaum wrote: "Yes, from the eyes of a lover, we see the charming side of Bundy he was truly famous for, but there's an undercurrent of creep-factor that, without spoiling the film, is the cause of a well placed, shocking twist".

The streaming service posted to their official account, "I've seen a lot of talk about Ted Bundy's alleged hotness and would like to gently remind everyone that there are literally THOUSANDS of hot men on the service - nearly all of whom are not convicted serial murderers". However, despite the fact that Bundy was a prolific and brutal serial killer, Netflix have had to beg users to stop romanticising him.

Due to the misguided trailer, and having a known heartthrob like Efron playing the role of Bundy, a lot of people anxious that the film would try to portray the killer as a sympathetic, misunderstood character.

It features audio recordings from interviews with Bundy which were taken during his time on death row.

Posting to their official twitter account, Netflix urged fans to strap posting about his "hotness". However, some people thought it was true to the serial killer's actual personality.

Such prepayment could be in violation of the sanctions, setting the stage for a standoff at the ports. He also pledged to retaliate, but did not announce any specific measures.

ZAC EFRON has been sticking up for his portrayal of Ted Bundy, saying he wanted to show how the serial killer became "the first mass manipulator".

She said she doesn't have a problem with him playing the serial killer, and even though the actor is a known sex symbol, Stapley says "that is what Ted Bundy kind of was" too.

"The movie does glorify it more than I think it should be".

Ted Bundy was executed in Florida in January 1989 but his legend continues and he is considered one of the most vicious serial killers in the history of United States law enforcement. I think hopefully it will make women [.] be more aware of their surroundings and be cautious. He had different tactics that he used to help people- to help people get in cars or do things. He is not someone to be glorified, and in my personal opinion, he definitely was not hot.

The film, which chronicles everything from Bundy's heinous crimes to his trial, is told from the viewpoint of his girlfriend Elizabeth "Liz" Kloepfer, played here by Lily Collins, who for years refused to believe that her boyfriend was guilty.
