Zac Efron portrays serial killer Ted Bundy in the new film"Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile." Some people have accused the film of romanticizing the killer. Bundy was responsible for the murder of 30 women, and executed in 1989. But one woman who was attacked by Bundy in 1978 and survived thinks this is appropriate.

While the film glorifies him a bit, she said it makes sense as long as people understand that what they're watching"wasn't a normal person."

Completely agree with his survivor... shouldn’t make him all creepy, because not every predator is the same & showing people that they can blend in - doesn’t glorify him.

I agree too. The scary reality of serial killers, pedophiles, and the likes, are that they fit into society so well, most of the time their partners, parents, bosses and closest friends don't even believe what they are accused of doing.

It's why he got away with it for so long and while everyone had a"I met/escaped Bundy" story. He was just very typical and charismatic. He blended in and wasn't easy to pick out as"off." His personality and appearance does not change the fact he was a murderer.

THATS the whole POINT Ted Bundy looked like an ordinary and charming guy like he would do nothing wrong and then bam he kills a bunch of people and says he didn’t and that’s just how he was

The whole point of sociopaths is that they are charming, witty and charismatic. They draw you in and seduce you into trusting them. All the better if they are attractive too. But that's all part of the act, they think they're more clever than you, better than you, more deserving of the good things in life than you. They only care about themselves, if they weren't all these things they wouldn't be sociopaths.

OMG exactly. Nobody wants to acknowledge that psychopaths are almost always just regular people. They don't LOOK like bad guys. Most of them just look like- and usually are- normal, functioning- and yes, sometimes rather attractive- people.

Ted Bundy was a decently handsome man. He was arrogant, yet charming, but seemed normal to anybody who didn't know him, which is extremely common among socio/psychopaths.

It's definitely important that people understand that someone does have to LOOK or SEEM evil to BE evil. Those kinds of tendencies rest in many people, even the ones who appear harmless.

People said that was one of the biggest things about Bundy, he was good looking and charismatic. It gives you perspective of it really could be anybody
