Lily Collins revealed she would wake up every night at 3.05 am while she was preparing for the role of Ted Bundy's ex-girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer.
'The Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile' star, Lily Collins believes she was visited by the ghosts of Ted Bundy's victims and revealed she “didn’t feel scared.”
In an interview with The Guardian, 30-year-old Collins spoke about her supernatural experience. She revealed she would wake up every night at 3.05 am while she was preparing for the role of Ted Bundy's ex-girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer.
“I would go downstairs and have a cup of tea, trying to figure out why I had woken up again,” Collins said. “I started being woken up by flashes of images, like the aftermath of a struggle.”
Collins went on to reveal that she turned to research to figure out what was happening to her. "I discovered that 3 a.m. is the time when the veil between the realms is the thinnest and one can be visited. I didn’t feel scared. I felt supported. I felt like people were saying, ‘We’re here listening. We’re here to support. Thank you for telling the story.'”
The newly released Netflix film, 'Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile' revolves around the story of Ted Bundy's crime through the perspective of Kloepfer, a single mother who dated Bundy in the 1970s. The role of Bundy is played by Zac Efron in the film. Joe Berlinger, the director of the film also directed the Netflix docuseries Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.
The real-life Kloepfer worked with Berlinger and Collins to make sure the film remained accurate. Collins revealed that she even got to meet Kloepfer and said she was really helpful. “She was so gracious, her and her daughter Molly were so gracious and inviting me and giving me material to look at and speaking to me and just allowing me to ask questions,” Collins said according to UK’s This Morning.
Bundy reign of terror ended when he was caught and was sentenced to death in 1980. He was executed in 1989. 'Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile' is based on Kloepfer’s 1981 memoir 'The Phantom Prince: My Life with Ted Bundy'.
