According to one of the trivia, Ted Bundy, who was still on death row and appealing his case to the U.S. Supreme court when "The Deliberate Stranger" premiered on TV, refused to watch the movie.

I think the objective of most of these productions is not to glorify the man but rather to demonstrate/warn that evil men don't always have to look like the 'stereotype' bad guys. Behind a charming face could be a brutal killer, rapist or kidnapper so the message should be not to trust a person from his/her looks alone.

Ed Jones (XLIX) it's always something about the eyes with serial killers. I don't know whether it's photographs capturing something that bare eye can't or it is actually evident in person too, but most serial killers have that stare that you can't quite shrug off.

Netflix has posted a statement in response to online reactions to both their own documentary series “Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes” and the new Sundance film starring Zac Efron, “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.”

I’ve seen a lot of talk about Ted Bundy’s alleged hotness and would like to gently remind everyone that there are literally Thousands of hot men on the service — almost all of whom are not convicted serial murderers,” Netflix said :-)

I knew Bundy attracted a lot of media coverage and inspired a lot of movies, but seeing it in one list makes the extent much more visible.
