Zoë Bell fans, rejoice! Bell’s new web series, Angel of Death, premiered this week on Crackle.com, and it’s a wild and bloody ride.
In it, the former Xena stunt woman/actress Bell plays Eve, an assassin who takes on her targets with lethal precision. That is, until now. In the premiere episode, "Edge," we follow Eve on a mission gone awry.
Yep, that’s an x-ray of Eve’s head.

Will you watch Angel of Death?
