Ted Bundy: Falling for a Killer, a five-part docuseries, debuts this Friday, January 31, on Amazon Prime.

The show, centering on Bundy’s longtime girlfriend Elizabeth Kendall and her daughter Molly, examines “the disturbing and profound way in which his pathological hatred of women collided with the culture wars and feminist movement of the 1970s.” After nearly 40 years of silence on the topic, Elizabeth and Molly share unsettling new details about Bundy’s incredible sway over women.

The series also includes chilling first-hand accounts from survivors of Bundy’s attacks, as well as the perspectives of other women associated with the case, including those in law enforcement, the media, academia and rights organizations.

Amazon says that Ted Bundy: Falling for a Killer is designed to “provoke a discussion around gender politics that hauntingly resonates today.”

For another take on Bundy, Netflix offers Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, a four-part docuseries combining present-day interviews, archival footage and recorded discussions with the notorious serial killer.

Netflix also hosts Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, a 2019 drama with Zac Efron playing the murderer.
