Lily Collins Claims the Ghosts of Ted Bundy’s Victims Visited Her While Filming ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile’
In Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, Lily Collins plays Ted Bundy’s long-time girlfriend, Liz Kloepfer (also known as Liz Kendall). Inspired by Kloepfer’s memoir, The Phantom Prince: My Life with Ted Bundy, the new Netflix movie is told from Kloepfer’s point of view, offering a unique spin on the chilling life and crimes of Ted Bundy (Zac Efron).
As if filming a movie based on Ted Bundy’s life and monstrous murders isn’t already creepy enough, Lily Collins recently revealed she was visited by the ghosts of his victims while filming the Netflix movie. Find out what she had to say about the experience, ahead.
Lily Collins believes she was contacted by Ted Bundy’s victims
“I started being woken up by flashes of images, like the aftermath of a struggle,” she told The Guardian. “I discovered that 3 A.M. is the time when the veil between the realms is the thinnest and one can be visited,” she noted.
Through this experience, she started to believe that, perhaps the women murdered by the infamous killer were trying to contact her. “I didn’t feel scared — I felt supported,” she revealed. “I felt like people were saying: ‘We’re here listening. We’re here to support. Thank you for telling the story,” she added.
How many women did Ted Bundy kill?
Although Ted Bundy admitted to many of his heinous crimes, the exact number of women he killed during the 1970s isn’t entirely known. Ted Bundy confessed to the murders of 30 women. However, some believe he might have slain over 100 victims and investigators still pursue cold case leads involving the serial killer.
According to Netflix’s Conversations With a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, Bundy had a conversation with Florida investigators and was asked whether or not it was true that he murdered 36 women. True crime author Ann Rule discussed his reply stating, “he reportedly replied, ‘Add one digit to that and you’ll have it.” The author went on to dissect his response, wondering what he actually meant. “Was he being sarcastic? Did he mean 37 murders, or did he mean 136 murders, or did he mean 360 murders?”
Most of Ted Bundy’s killings allegedly took place in the 70s. However, the killer has been suspected of crimes in the early and mid-60s, too. In 1961, when Ted Bundy was 14-years-old, a young eight-year-old girl named Ann Marie Burr disappeared. Some believe she could have been one of his first victims, but he denied such claims.
Bundy might also be linked to a 1966 case involving two flight attendants who were beaten with a piece of lumber in their Seattle home. One victim, Louise Trumbull died in the beating and her roommate survive but had permanent memory loss. Police are currently investigating the 50-year-old case in hopes of finally naming the attacker.
In addition to these potential murders, Ted Bundy is responsible for the deaths of Caryn Campbell, Lisa Levy, Margaret Bowman, and many more.
