    OMG! Are you retarded?? A serial killer's motive does not have to be sex. True, she wasn't the first, but the movie doesn't really say that. Have you seen it??? And the "cooling off" periods... they were there. Think before you speak. Or in your case, LOOK SHIT UP before you write about it. All you are is yet another ignorant person speaking on the topic... is there a club somewhere??

    Response to this comment:
    Woo, I love non-true things.

    Although quite a lot of the movie is accurate, a lot is not. The thing that jumps out at me most is their milking of the tagline "America's First Female Serial Killer" for all its worth. First of all, there never has been nor ever will be a female serial killer. By true definition, a serial killer's crimes must firstly be sexually-driven. For example, John Wayne Gacy is a serial killer because he raped, molested, and tortured the men and boys he killed. Aileen Wuornos killed "in self-defense" (although that is not entirely true). Also, there must be at least three victims with a "cooling off" period between each. If someone broke into a house and stabbed the 14 people inside of it, they would not be a serial killer. Now on the other hand, by the guidelines they use to determine that she was a serial killer, she was certainly not the first female, or even close. I really hate that they are using a completely false description to promote a movie splattered with misconceptions, inaccuracies, and outright lies. So that's my two cents.
    Oh and uh, the acting was good.
    Or something.
