Stream It Or Skip It: ‘Aileen Wuornos: American Boogeywoman’ on Netflix, A Needless Extra Chapter In The Serial Killer’s Story
Aileen Wuornos: American Boogeywoman had a cup of coffee in theaters last year before migrating to VOD and eventually landing here on Netflix. And it refers to itself as a “companion piece” to Monster, the 2003 film which featured Charlize Theron in an Oscar-winning turn as Wuornos. But with its Netflix slot, what it really feels like a companion to is star Peyton List’s other appearances on the streamer, namely in Bunk’d and Cobra Kai.
Last words can give hope to many. I feel better about everything reading what sage murderer Aileen Wuornos said before lethal injection: “Yes, I would just like to say I’m sailing with the rock, and I’ll be back, like Independence Day, with Jesus. June 6, like the movie. Big mother ship and all, I’ll be back, I’ll be back.”
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Known as one of the country’s first woman serial killers to gain widespread notoriety, Aileen Wuornos’ killing spree began on Dec. 1, 1989. On that day, Clearwater businessman Richard Mallory would become the first of at least six men killed by Wuornos. He had been shot multiple times in the chest and left for dead. His body was discovered a little less than two weeks later in Volusia County, miles away from his abandoned car, court documents read.

When Tyria Moore cooperated with police and coerced a confession out of Aileen Wuornos, the two had been living together in a committed relationship for nearly five years. On a humid Florida evening in 1986, Tyria Moore fatefully met Aileen Wuornos, an electric blonde at the Zodiac Bar in Daytona. Weeks earlier, Moore had left her conservative hometown of Cadiz, Ohio, to fully embrace being a lesbian. Unbeknownst to her, she was falling for a serial killer.

An upcoming movie will tell the story of a young Aileen Wuornos, years before she became one of America’s most infamous serial killers. “American Boogeywoman” will focus on Wuornos' early life, from when she was in her early twenties in Daytona Beach married to Lewis Fell, a 69-year-old wealthy yacht club president, Deadline reported in March. That marriage was short-lived. Fell filed a restraining order against Wuornos, claiming she beat him with his cane." After only nine weeks together, Fell had the marriage annulled.
It’s hard to say how many people really knew about Aileen Wuornos before the movie Monster came out in 2003, so it’s even more likely that people have no idea what her life was like before she went on a killing spree that eventually ended with her execution. There’s usually a huge argument that emerges when it comes to killers that are executed, as some people think that they deserve to be rehabilitated while others state that they had their chance. In Aileen’s case though she was adamant that letting her live would have been a serious mistake since she had nothing but hate left in her heart would go seeking violence again and again. According to her personal history, Aileen and her brother were abandoned as children, left with their alcoholic grandparents, and by the age of 11, she was already providing sex to obtain the things she wanted and/or needed. She was apparently kicked out of her grandparents’ home after her grandmother died and forced to live on her own in the woods as she continued to sell her body for sex. This is the kind of case when just reading about it, one might not get the entire scope but can easily surmise that Aileen and her brother were dealt a poor hand by some twist of fate that had no rhyme or reason to it.
