New Documentary Ted Bundy: Falling For A Killer Drops On Amazon Prime This Friday
While you may think you've seen a fair few documentaries about the notorious serial killer, Ted Bundy: Falling For A Killer will shift the focus onto his long-term girlfriend Elizabeth Kendall, her daughter Molly and a number of survivors, in turn reframing the discourse by telling the story through the voice of the women Bundy affected.
The official synopsis for the series reads: "For the first time, Ted Bundy's long-term girlfriend Elizabeth Kendall, her daughter Molly, and other survivors come forward to share their experiences with unsettling new details about Bundy, the pull he had on women and an abundant archive of never-before-seen family photos."
A statement from Amazon added: "Bundy's crimes from a female perspective - uncovering the disturbing and profound way in which Bundy's pathological hatred of women collided with the culture wars and feminist movement of the 1970s, culminating in what is perhaps the most infamous true-crime saga of our time."

Kendall - who was the one who called police on Bundy - will explain what life was like with her infamous ex, and discuss the mysterious pull he seemed to have on women.
She says in the trailer: "I just didn't think he could do these things. I fell in love with him from day one, but there were all these coincidences.
"I couldn't let it go."
After the trailer was released last month, many people said they were interested to hear the tale from Kendall's perspective.
One commented on YouTube: "Every documentary has talked about Liz, his girlfriend. Now I can finally hear her side. Good."
Someone else wrote: "I think it's helpful Liz is talking about her experience. Ted fooled everyone, surely we could all learn something from this tragedy."
While another said they thought it was the first time they'd seen any filmmaker 'focus on the women who knew Bundy', a fourth added: "Thank you Liz and Molly. You hold the key to so much mystery. Please continue talking and sharing all that you know. For posterity. For history. For the victims. Thank you!!!!"
Ted Bundy: Falling For A Killer will be available to watch on Amazon Prime from 31 January.
