A fresh trailer has been released for Zac Efrons spin as executed serial killer Ted Bundy and its a trip.
Wed previously seen Zac as the serial murderer in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Viles first teaser, before his heinous crimes were convicted, as he hung out in an ice cream parlour with girlfriend Liz Kendall.
Now we catch up with the actor as he plays Ted, locked up but still in that whole denial phase of his crimes (he latest admitted to them all while on death row).

We also see the introduction of his wife Carole Anne Boone, played by Kaya Scodelario – she would go on to have Teds child, Rose, while he was in prison awaiting the electric chair.
The film focuses on Teds seemingly perfect relationship with Liz, which is turned upside down when he is arrested and charged for a series of increasingly grisly murders.
Told from Lizs perspective, she is forced to consider how well she knows the man she shares a life with and, as the evidence piles up, decide if Ted is truly a victim or guilty as charged, the description for the film reads.
To get into the mind of the killer, Zac explained he got into Teds psyche by going vegan and wearing false teeth.
Guys in the 70s had that wiry, kinda thin look, he told Variety. Ted was always kind of, a little bit gaunt. He always looked pretty tired. I had a good set of fake teeth and they were pretty Read More – Source
