After their chance encounter, their love flourishes, while their financial situation becomes desperate.

    Wuornos continues her prostitution to keep the relationship alive, which fuels a deadly rage, a rage unleashed in a string of lurid killings and turns her into a MONSTER.

    Some of those features were included on the original release. I'm not sure why "The Vision And The Journey" was listed twice.

    It's not worth a double-dip to me. I immensely loved this movie, but seeing as some of the extras have been duplicated, I don't feel the need to fork over more cash.
