Zac Efron moves away from "cheesy", "charming" characters of the past to play the serial killer Ted Bundy in "Extremely Vicious, Shocking, Evil and Mean". He premiered the film at the Sundance Film Festival. (January 27th)
The new Netflix documentary series "Ted Conversations with A Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes" about Ted Bundy paints a dark image of the convicted serial killer whose deeply disturbed psyche caused him to make an estimate of 30 murders.
According to Netflix, this has not stopped some viewers from fixing on its streaming service which tweets over the alarming trend on Monday .
"I've talked a lot about Ted Bundy's alleged pungency and I'd like to draw everyone's attention to the fact that literally THOUSANDs of hot men exist, almost all of whom are not serial killers," the official Netflix account tweet said.
Thirty years until the day Bundy died on the electric chair at Florida State Prison. The four-part documentary series gives viewers an overview of his cruel crimes and provides audio from conversations with the killer behind bars.

Netflix's tweet is not the first case in which the streaming service had to tweet a PSA about viewer reactions to its programming.
Following the release of the Sandra Bullock thriller in December, "Bird Box", fans began to share videos of themselves as they blindfolded through the so-called #BirdboxChallenge, inspired by the scenes depicted in the film.
Netflix responded with a tweet that urged audiences to rethink the viral challenge.
"I can not believe I have to say that, but: PLEASE DO NOT KEEP UP WITH THIS BIRD BOX CHALLENGE" The streaming service tweeted on January 2nd. "We do not know how it started and we love the love, but Boy and Girl only have one wish for 2019 and it's like you're not hospitalized because of memes."
