Zac Efron as Ted Bundy Is the Perfect Example of How the Horror Genre Elevates an Actor

Nothing against Zac Efron.... But I'm always going to peg him for a comedian alongside Seth Rogen.

That's not a bad thing, though! I like comedies. Especially when there's a whole lot of freakouts and blood. This, however, isn't about comedies or even anything remotely related to High School Musical (which honestly could be a horror movie from a certain point of view), but rather....

The Fact That Zac Efron Now Has Me TOTALLY Creeped Out With His Soon-to-Be Turn as the Infamous Serial Killer and Rapist TED BUNDY


Uncanny. Truthfully. When the announcement was made about a new film based on Ted Bundy, I
instantly began to wonder: who would play the iconic psychopath? And we did get our answer: Zac Efron. Who astonishingly resembles the criminal himself in a creepy way. That photo of Zac isn't even him actually in character (the photo was on a cut while conversing with the director)! He, yet, somehow manages to look, well...disturbing.

The film called EXTREMELY WICKED, SHOCKINGLY EVIL AND VILE, a visionary piece from Joe Berlinger, is currently filming in Covington, Kentucky. There's no telling if this will be a rather dark, moody and brooding affair, or something more documentary-like a la THE SOCIAL NETWORK but with a sense of dark comedic flair (I mean, it's Zac Efron, for crying out loud -- plus it was also announced that THE BIG BANG THEORY's Jim Parsons will also star in the film).

Whatever the case may be....

It May Once Again Be Proof That Horror Can Truly Transfigure an Actor Into a Whole New World


We won't know until we see this film, though. I might still just feel like I'm looking at a frat boy with abs. Who knows. But we've seen this before, where even a comedian lands a hot role either as a real-life evil person, or victim, what have you, or somehow expands the repertoire for acting chops to include a whole lot of terror, anger, and sadness.... (like Vince Vaughn when he originally exploded onto the movie scene with his eerie mirrored version of Norman Bates in the remake of PSYCHO). This might be Efron's breakout role. Who knows. He's done musicals. Romances. Comedies. But what about horror? I'm licking my lips....

Why THE FACULTY Has so Much in Common With Body Snatchers and Pink Floyd

The Faculty took the idea of the invasion and simply localized it. Instead of a planet -- everyone is in danger, no discrimination, nothing to signify what these aliens want or are looking for -- the alien(s) instead focused their effect on just those few teachers. Now there's an interesting high concept.

WHAT'S TRENDING RIGHT NOW!

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.

'It Follows': Not Just a Cautionary Tale About Casual Sex

And in all its basic-ness, you'd be shocked to realize that it's not just a linear-type film with one main idea. There are actually a ton of deep meanings behind all of the frames, the shots, the sequences, the scenes. With obviously the underlying principle, the whole point of it: meaningless sex is bad!
