By now you've probably heard all about the upcoming Ted Bundy biopic, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, which stars Zac Efron as the serial killer who ultimately confessed to committing 30 murders during the 1970s. 

A teaser trailer dropped earlier this year and sparked quite a bit of controversy for its supposed glamorization of Bundy. Now, in a new clip from the movie, we get an even closer look at what made Bundy such a horrifying person. 

Efron delivers a chilling performance that conveys how easily Bundy was able to manipulate people — specifically his girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer (played by Lily Collins) — with his bold-faced lies and made-up stories. 

For those who haven't gotten the memo, Zac Efron is starring in the forthcoming film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.

Efron is taking on the role of Ted Bundy, the infamous American serial killer who murdered 30 young women during the 1970s, all while he was attempting to build a "normal" life with his girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer (played by Lily Collins). The film will reportedly be told from Kloepfer's perspective, who refused to believe the truth about Bundy for years, but who ultimately helped turn him in.

A teaser trailer dropped in January to mixed reviews.

Some people felt that the teaser glamorized Bundy, giving him rock-star-like treatment when someone who committed such horrible crimes is clearly not worthy or deserving of celebration. 

"That's exactly what Ted Bundy wanted, posthumous fame for his cruelties," wrote Twitter user @iamshiroshika. "You can count on Hollywood to make the worst human beings immortal."

Others felt that Efron's casting "sexualized" Bundy.

This person is not looking forward to the inevitable "thirst tweets" from Efron's fans about Bundy.

"Can we not sexualize Ted Bundy?" she asked. "He raped, murdered, and decapitated women and had sex with their dead bodies. Not here for this hyper-sexualized Zac Efron film. I know the youth of twitter will obsess over him, and I’d prefer not to read thirst tweets about a serial murderer."

Some, however, felt that the depiction was spot-on.

After all, Bundy was able to get away with his crimes for so long because of his conventional attractiveness, charm, intelligence, and white privilege. And the fact that he knew exactly how to use all of those qualities to his advantage and how to manipulate those around him demonstrates just how evil he really was. 

Efron has previously discussed what it was like getting inside the mind of a serial killer. 

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he explained that everyone around Bundy viewed him as a relatively normal guy. 

"One of the most fascinating things about Ted was his ability to really relate to people to a certain extent," Efron said. "Through all the interviews and stuff that I watched on Ted, I've never seen anybody who was like, 'We were best buds.' But a lot of people say, 'Yeah, I knew him very well. He was a pretty upstanding dude. He seemed agreeable.'"

And now we have an even closer look at Efron's creepy performance as Bundy.

In a new clip titled "Being Set Up," Bundy is seen with Kloepfer and her young daughter, Tina. Kloepfer confronts Bundy about the mounting evidence against him, but he pushes back and insists that he's being framed. 

"The police already had my name," he tells a visibly concerned Kloepfer. "Someone gave it to them." 

The clip reveals the extent of Bundy's ability to lie and manipulate.

"Someone gave your name to the authorities in Utah?" Kloepfer asks Bundy, clearly trying to process what in the world is going on. "Do you have any idea who would do that to you?" 

Bundy shakes his head and tells her to look out the window. "Look, do you see that car out there?" he says. "That's been following me since I got back. Either I'm going crazy, or I'm being set up." 

The real-life Kloepfer has since explained how she fell for Bundy in the first place.

She explained in her memoir that when she met Bundy, she was a young, divorced, single mother who was just looking to be loved. 

She wrote: "I handed Ted my life and said, 'Here. Take care of me.' He did in a lot of ways, but I became more and more dependent upon him. When I felt his love, I was on top of the world; when I felt nothing from Ted, I felt that I was nothing." 

So, when can you watch the movie for yourself?

Netflix purchased US distribution rights for the film, but the streaming giant hasn't gone public with an official release date just yet. Sky Cinema, however, is releasing it in the UK, where it will begin showing in cinemas on May 3. 

According to Seventeen, "in addition to the Netflix release, EWSEV will also be released in theaters in the fall, in an attempt to gain some awards buzz."

Hopefully Netflix gets the hint and begins streaming the film very soon.

"Something clicked pretty early on, and it was kind of scary, it was that Ted and I had quite a bit in common in the way we carried ourselves," Efron said in an interview with Variety earlier this year.

"I feel a responsibility to make sure that this movie is not a celebration of Ted Bundy. Or a glorification of him. But, definitely, a psychological study of who this person was. In that, there’s honesty.”
