‘Gosnell’ brings the shocking facts of Kermit Gosnell’s House of Horrors to the big screen

The media ignored the abortion doctor’s trial and much of the press ignored the film based on the shocking story of Kermit Gosnell, an abortion doctor in Philadelphia who allowed a medical overdose of a patient and regularly delivered fetuses live in the third trimester before “snipping” their spinal cord to terminate their life.

Gosnell is subtitled “The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer,” and it plays largely as courtroom drama as it details Gosnell’s atrocities and educating the masses on the regular procedure of abortion.

Dean Cain (Clark Kent/Superman in the TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, God’s Not Dead) stars as the detective James “Woody” Woods investigating the crimes of the Philadelphia abortion doctor during a raid. Gosnell, played by Earl Billings in the film, was selling prescription meds which warranted the police investigation and unearthed the shocking medical practices.

Sarah Jane Morris is the heart of the film, the DA taking the case, getting more and more invested in the case as it progresses.

In one scene, a doctor testifies that if she accidentally delivered a living fetus, she would administer “comfort care” until it died of natural causes. “It seems like it would be more humane to just take a scissors…” Gosnell’s lawyer replies, suggesting that Gosnell and the typical abortion doctor are not as different as the latter might think.

Irish film-maker Phelim McAleer, along with his wife, Ann McElhinney, were the driving force behind the movie with Nick Searcy (Justified) helming the film.

Kickstarter would not let them fundraise, even though they used it before for previous films. They used “Indiegogo” instead, through which they raised $2.3 million from donations.

Many have dismissed the “serial killer” label since Gosnell only faces a few charges of murder, but even the film notes how over 30 of these late term aborted fetuses were found, with only a couple examined and dated for prosecuted. Since, Gosnell ran the facility for three decades, it’s easy to imagine how many of these babies were snipped.

This is the BEST film of the year which “NOBODY” saw. Billings is truly awesome as the calm, creepy doctor, oblivious to the blood and inhumane treatment at the clinic. The staff is great with Searcy also playing the defense lawyer you love to hate.

A few of the characters, Searcy’s lawyer and the blogger, are amalgam of a couple of real life people, but the film stays are target with the truth, using transcripts and real photos to bring the SHOCK factor.

Gosnell also stars Michael Beach (Jesse Kane in the upcoming Aquaman film), Janine Turner (Katie on Friday Night Lights), Cyrina Fiallo, Alfonzo Rachel and Darryl Cox.
