High School Musical’s Zac Efron makes a hot Ted Bundy. Yeah, it’s weird, but it’s true. Over the weekend, the former Disney star made his debut as the notorious serial killer in the official trailer for Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile. The film also stars John Malkovich, Jim Parsons, Haley Joel Osment, Metallica’s James Hetfield, Grace Victoria Cox, Kaya Scodelario, Angela Sarafyan, Jeffrey Donovan, Terry Kinney, and Dylan Baker and will premieres at the Sundance Film Festival.

Here’s the film’s synopsis:

1969. Ted (Zac Efron) is crazy-handsome, smart, charismatic, affectionate. And cautious single mother Liz Kloepfer (Lily Collins) ultimately cannot resist his charms. For her, Ted is a match made in heaven, and she soon falls head over heels in love with the dashing young man. A picture of domestic bliss, the happy couple seems to have it all figured out … until, out of nowhere, their perfect life is shattered. Ted is arrested and charged with a series of increasingly grisly murders. Concern soon turns to paranoia — and, as evidence piles up, Liz is forced to consider that the man with whom she shares her life could actually be a psychopath. This is the story of Ted Bundy, one of the most notorious serial killers of all time.
