There is a new movie on Netflix named Extremely wicked, it is shockingly Evel story of serial killer Ted bundy
In 1974 there were series of unsolved kidnappings in Washington state. When Kendall saw him first in the Seattle Times a police composite of the suspect who was named as “Ted Bundy,” she noticed he looked same like her boyfriend, and they both drove a Volkswagen. In news reports it was described that the suspect used a crutch to knock out a victim, Kendall recalled seeing crutches in Ted Bundy’s home.
Those clues inspired her to make call to the police in 1974, she explains in her memoir. While she was on the phone, she said that she lost her nerve and hung up. One month later, when the abductions began to start happening in Utah as soon as Bundy moved to Salt Lake City, Kendall made call to the cops again. The police said they’d already cleared Bundy—but Kendall continued to think back on clues which pointed to Bundy’s involvement in the crime, the crowbar he took from her house, to the hatchet which was under the passenger seat of his car, and the plaster of Paris she once found in Bundy’s desk drawer which would explain the suspect’s arm cast.
But in the movie, Kendall believes Bundy as he insists he has nothing to do with the crimes that were being committed—until the very end of the film.
“In the book there were few clues that made her scratch her head, as it would anybody,” the film’s producer Joe Berlinger tells me. “That he wants audience to invest in the relationship between Zac and Lily, and to believe that relationship so that by the end of the film. When she finally holds him accountable, he wanted the audience to also feel the same level of disgust that she felt. For the first half of the movie, you were almost lulled into a sense of, well, maybe he’s not such a bad guy. He wanted people to feel revolted at the end and he thought that would have been impossible to do if, in the first 10 or 15 minutes, she finds a knife in the glove compartment.”
The dog and Ted Bundy.
Instead of Kendall noticing clues, the filmmakers made the warning signs a little more subtle. When Ted Bundy and Kendall go dog shopping, for example, the dog begins barking viciously at Ted Bundy—which the couple later jokes about. In real, there were no warnings from pets.
“To me, it’s about animals know,” Berlinger says. “When the dog didn’t get along with Ted Bundy, that’s a clue, but it’s not like finding a knife. I did interpretation of having some clues along the way.”
The significance of the French prison-escape novel Papillon.
In the movie, Bundy is constantly telling Kendall to read the book named Papillon. The novel written by Henri Charrière details a man’s incarceration for murder and his obsession with escaping, which gives Ted Bundy the hope that he will eventually get out of prison. When Kendall comes to visit him after his first escape from an Aspen courthouse, Bundy gives her a copy of Papillon as a gift, and said that he read it four times.
As symbolic as the book was, Kendall maked no mention of Papillon in her memoir.
