Ted Bundy is a name that will never be forgotten. In the past couple of years it feels his name has graced as many headlines now as it did during his life. With continuous coverage in the media, Bundy appears just as popular today as he was during his trials. He is a true immortal. However, Amazon Prime hopes to change the tide of the Bundy phenomena with its new docuseries; Ted Bundy: Falling for a Killer.
Falling for a Killer is a series not told by a male’s perspective. Instead, this series will be told from the mouths of those who survived Bundy’s reign of terror; women. Not just from those who survived the years he held women in captive fear, but from those who survived his hands.
Falling for a Killer will also shed light upon other aspects so many documentaries have failed to. It often goes overlooked Bundy’s life, actions, and murders occurred during the same time as the women’s liberation movement. Women were finally beginning to gain footing in equal rights and feel a sense of empowerment. Suddenly, one man’s actions threw a wrench into their progression for equality. When girl after girl began to go missing only to later be found dead, everything these women believed in came to a halt.
Speculatively, the most powerful piece will be first hand accounts by Bundy’s long term girlfriend Liz Kendall, and her daughter Molly. Molly, seen in the picture beneath, claimed in the trailer “We were like a family.”
Only once has Kendall accounted the story of her lengthy relationship with Bundy. This was in her book, The Phantom Prince: My Life With Ted Bundy, which has been re-released earlier this month on Amazon and can be found here.
However, since the original release of the book in 1981 she did her best to take both herself and her daughter out of the spotlight. Until now.
Liz, Molly, and the rest of these brave women who are finally stepping forward to tell their story and no longer keep Bundy’s secrets will all be heard in Ted Bundy: Falling for a Killer.
The Amazon Prime docuseries Ted Bundy: Falling for a Killer will be premiering later this month, January 31, 2020.
