A serial killer, an art critic, a prison inmate, a rodeo clown, zombies, snake handlers and a congressional investigation are central figures in some of the most buzzworthy movies debuting at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, according to data from the website IMDdPro.

The industry arm of the Internet Movie Database, IMDb.com, released a list Friday of the top 10 most anticipated movies premiering at Sundance, based on page views to the site between Nov. 28 — when Sundance announced its slate — and Jan. 15.

Topping the list is director Joe Berlinger’s “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile,” which stars Zac Efron as the notorious serial killer Ted Bundy. The movie looks at Bundy through the experiences of his girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer (Lily Collins), who was unaware of Bundy’s crimes.

The movies on the list range from horror to comedy to drama. None of the 10 films listed are documentaries, or in a language other than English.

IMDb and IMDbPro are a sustaining sponsor of the festival.

The top 10:

1. “Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile,” mentioned above.

2. “Velvet Buzzsaw,” writer-director Dan Gilroy’s horror satire of the art world, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo, Natalia Dyer, Toni Collette and John Malkovich.
