Ted Bundy Survivor Reacts To Controversy Around New Bundy Film Staring Zac Efron

The famed ‘Sundance Film Festival’ is in full swing in Park City, Utah. The Festival founded by actor Robert Redford is not without it’s controversies this year. One film causing a stir is a film about serial killer Ted Bundy, starring Zac Efron. The film is being accused of casting Bundy in ‘too much of a positive light.’ Bundy was executed at the Florida State Penitentiary thirty years ago on January 24th, 1989 after being on death row for 14 years. Bundy was executed for the murder of 12 year old Kimberly Leach, but it’s estimated that Bundy killed hundreds of women.

One of the few women who survived one of Bundy’s attacks is speaking out about the controversy. The film ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile’ is currently being screened at the festival. Kathy Kleiner Rubin was 20 and a student at Florida State University in 1978. She was a member of the Chi Omega Sorority and lived in the sorority house. On January 15th 1978, Bundy broke into Rubin’s sorority house and beat and raped her. He beat and raped another girl, and murdered two others. Critics of the film, say there is too much emphasis on Bundy’s good looks and charm.

Rubin has been able to screen the film ahead of it’s premier at the festival, said she has no problem with people seeing the film. The way that Bundy is portrayed in the film is ‘the way Bundy wanted people to see him.’ says Rubin. The FSU grad, says that ‘Bundy was good looking and charming, and that was how he was able to persuade so many victims to unknowingly fall victim to him.’ Rubin says, “If he looked like the grim reaper maybe he wouldn’t have been able to kill as many women as he did.” She also wants people to understand, that ‘what they are looking at is not a normal person.’
