Barreling through roadblock after roadblock, the movie trailer for "Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer" is finally here.
The film, set for release on October 12 through independent film distributor GVN Releasing, details the real-life gruesome crimes and subsequent trial of serial-murdering abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who's currently serving a life sentence. Gosnell was accused of murdering a young mother and hundreds of newborns in his filthy Philadelphia-based late-term abortion clinic aptly dubbed the "House of Horrors" by prosecution. In 2014, Gosnell was convicted on three counts of first-degree murder and one count of involuntary manslaughter.
The film, as revealed in the trailer, not only highlights the horrors of Gosnell's crimes, but government corruption and a disengaged media. In one teased scene, the prosecution walks into an empty courtroom where seats were reserved for media. Pro-lifers have pointed out that the trial was shamefully ignored by most media due to their pro-abortion bias.
In another telling scene, actor Dean Cain, starring as the detective who puts away Gosnell, is dismissed as an overzealous Catholic advocating for his pro-life beliefs, an attempt to sweep Gosnell's horrors under the rug for the sake of abortion's image.
From the beginning, the film was hit with fierce opposition by the pro-abortion crowd. For example, producers Phelim McAleer and Anne McElhinney were apparently kicked off fundraising site Kickstarter "due to the anti-abortion nature of their film and had difficulty setting business meetings via traditional Hollywood avenues," notes The Hollywood Reporter.
Additionally, as noted by THR, the film was recently blocked by the judge who served in the Gosnell trial. He sued due to his alleged portrayal in the film as part of the "Philadelphia's liberal corrupt government." The matter has since been resolved.
"Gosnell" was directed by "Justified" star and outspoken conservative Nick Searcy and actor Earl Billings plays Dr. Gosnell.
