Lily Collins Thinks She Was Visited By The Ghosts Of Ted Bundy’s Victims

“I started being woken up by flashes of images, like the aftermath of a struggle.”

I’ve watched enough horror movie trailers* to know that ghosts are not fun. 

So when I heard that Lily Collins thinks she was visited by the ghosts of Ted Bundy’s victims, it was one big “NOPE” from me. 

But, according to Lily, her ghosts were not harmful. 

“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,” she told The Guardian

For context: Lily is currently promoting Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, a film about serial killer Ted Bundy. 

In the movie, Lily portrays Ted’s wife, Elizabeth Kloepfer, now Liz Kendall.

Now, back to the ghosts. 

Lily told The Guardian that while preparing for the role, she kept waking up every night at 3:05am.

“I would go downstairs and have a cup of tea, trying to figure out why I had woken up again,” she said.

“I started being woken up by flashes of images, like the aftermath of a struggle.”

Lily said that after doing some digging on the internet she learnt that “3am is the time when the veil between the realms is the thinnest and one can be visited.” 

Being visited at night by a bunch of murdered women sounds like heavy stuff. It’s something right out of my nightmares, to be honest. 

For Lily it was just part of the creative process. Each to their own. 

Extremely Wicked, Shocking Evil and Vile is streaming on Netflix now.

*Yes, trailers. No way am I sitting down to watch a whole film filled with possessed dolls and angry spirits.
