“Aileen Wuornos: American Boogeywoman” is a 2021 thriller based on serial killer Aileen Wuornos’s brief marriage to multimillionaire Lewis Fell. It stars Peyton List (Cobra Kai), Lydia Hearst (Z Nation), and Tobin Bell (Saw).
“Monster” with Charlize Theron helped make serial killer Alieen Wuornos and her heinous crimes a household name. This one here is about her brief marriage to an older multimillionaire and all her underhanded manipulative things she did. It’s an interesting story about a part of her life that isn’t really talked about. However, the only bright spot of this movie is Peyton List. She’s very talented, and a great actress. Her acting is the only solid thing in this movie. They have a great story that’s really interesting but after about the 40-minute mark it gets soapy beyond belief. That’s where all the fiction they added into the movie comes into play, the acting’s bad, the story is soapy and it’s just dumb. I’m giving it a 4/10, and that’s only because of Peyton List’s acting. If not for her the movie would be a complete wash.
