Werner Herzog’s Death Row Doc

DEATHROWIt’s was only a matter of time before Werner Herzog interviewed a convicted killer eight days before his execution… Here are three fresh, fascinating clips from his new documentary Into the Abyss. Watch a death row groupie defend her feelings for the Texas triple homicide villain.

Herzog’s signature probing goes beyond journalism to dig deeper into the victim’s families psyches and inside those in love with the killer: “You have only touched his hand, describe his hand to us…” Shiver.

The doc premieres at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
