The film is based on the real story about “Ted Bundy”, played by Zac Efron. “Ted Bundy” is a law student when he meets single parent “Liz Kendall”, played by Lily Collins, at a young age. He moves in with her and her daughter. What “Liz” has no idea: “Ted Bundy” is a serial killer and already has several people on his conscience. Until he was arrested, she knew nothing of his murders. The film looks incredibly raw because of the real story behind it. Zac Efron plays the character of “Ted Bundy” incredibly well – at the same time he shows his charm and his psychotic personality.

“Zodiac” follows a true story about a murderer who calls himself “Zodiac”. He has gone down in crime history. After several murders in San Francisco in the late 1960s, encrypted letters “Zodiacs” were sent to several newspapers. In the letter, he threatens to kill a dozen people – unless someone decrypts his message and his identity. In reality, the letter is just a diversion from “Zodiac” to commit further murders. Despite all the efforts of the police, the perpetrator has still not been caught – a pretty creepy idea.
