CINCINNATI — After watching Netflix's new trailer for "Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile" released on Tuesday, some people might look at their significant other . . . differently.

The two-minute and 33-second trailer for the Queen City-made movie shows Zac Efron as serial killer Ted Bundy engaged in a battle of wills with Bundy's longtime girlfriend Liz, played by actor Lily Collins.

Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Joe Berlinger shot the movie at various Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati locations in January and February 2018.

"Extremely Wicked" chronicles the multiple murders committed by Ted Bundy starting in the 1970s until his conviction in the 1980s from the perspective of Liz.

The newly release trailer shows Liz asking Bundy to tell the truth as he sits in jail. She also questions if she could have stopped Bundy's bloody spree sooner if she hadn't been so in love with the charismatic serial killer.

The trailer contains mostly close-ups of Efron and Collins, along with interior shots.

"Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile" will begin streaming on Netflix May 3.
