Crimes That Shook the World: Angel of Death (2009)

AKA: Crimes That Shook the World: Aileen Wuornos

Director: Kathryn Ross

Writer: ???

Composer: Malcolm Lindsay

Starring: Brian Jarvis, Tim Pigott-Smith

More info: IMDb

Plot:  From 1990-1991, Aileen Wuornos killed 7 men in Florida, earning the title of the first female serial killer.  This documentary puts together the pieces involving the hunt for the killer of these murdered men and the aftermath once they caught her.

My rating: 8/10

Will I watch it again? Yes.

I love these British serial killer docs.  Nearly all of them are top-notch.  I've seen a few documentaries on Wuornos and this one is the best so far.  There's no nonsense and they don't waste time repeating anything.  They give you the facts and let the players speak for themselves, except for Wuornos 'cause, you know, she's dead.  Oops.  Spoiler alert.
