Nick Searcy previews ‘Gosnell’ movie: not a pro-life film, sheds the light on Kermit Gosnell’s House of Horrors

In a follow-up to the first trailer for Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer, Nick Searcy previewed the new film, going from primarily a career in acting to going behind the camera for such a dramatic topic and of course, answering the big question about the film.

The Justified co-star says this is “not a pro-life film…” clarifying that “we are not trying to torture you in the details.”

Searcy spoke with The Dispatch about the project highlighting the arrest of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell in 2011, who was later charged with seven counts of first-degree murder for newborns and one third-degree murder of an expectant mother, Karnamaya Mongar, who died in his care during a botched abortion.

“We focus on the case, the details, knowing we would be heavily scrutinized and (writer) Andrew Klaven did a great job,” Searcy explained, recapping that the film project was pitched by Irish documentarians Ann McElhinney, Phelim McAleer  (Not Evil, Just Wrong and FrackNation), who later penned the book: Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer.

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 was running a pill mill. They were looking for drugs and discovered…well, what was called a House of Horrors…blood on the floor. The building was like a maze, it’s easy to get lost in there and they found 47 fetuses…

“Dean is the eyes in the film…taking the audience through the experience,” Searcy said, praising the actor.

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,” Searcy says, praising the Brothers & Sisters actress as “incredible.”

“The expectation was that the case would be a media frenzy, but no one was there,” Searcy said, pointing out the other theme of the film is the media blackout. “It doesn’t matter if you are pro-life or pro-choice, you watch this film and will learn a lot…what is legal and what is illegal about abortion,” Searcy promises.

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

 Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer is slated to hit theaters on October 12.

A massive Florida storm rolled in and the audio cut in and out at times, with reverb and echo masking much of Nick’s audio and didn’t want to publish something so subpar.
