WATCH: Interview With Nick Searcy, Director of Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer
BLP’s Sonny Joy Nelson caught up with Director and actor, Nick Searcy, of the soon-to-release film, Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer at a special pre-showing.
This film boldly portrays the events as occurred in the Gosnell trial. Kermit Gosnell, who is currently serving a life sentence with no parole, operated an abortion “clinic” in Pennsylvania that was raided by the FBI and DEA in 2010 after a long investigation of illegal drug distribution.
After the trial, Gosnell was found guilty of the murder of 3 babies born alive after an abortion attempt, one count of involuntary manslaughter due to a botched abortion, and 24 counts of performing abortions past the 24 week limit in May of 2013.
The movie – that does not take a pro-life stance – flawlessly exposes Kermit Gosnell and the “clinic” that he operated for all that it was. This is not a “let’s overturn Roe” attempt at another pro-life film.Regardless of your stance on abortion or Roe v. Wade, this movie simply accurately tells the story of the events that took place not long ago. It relays the true details of this case in such a way that allows the viewer to decide their stance on abortion.
Rated PG-13, the movie is not a gruesome or gory explanation of the conditions inside the facility. The sheer retelling and references to the acts conducted in the clinic are enough to not need explicit visuals. This movie is by far one of the most moving films on the market, keeping your attention for the entirety of its one hour and 33 minutes.
Making a movie on such a touchy subject created obstacles for the production team to overcome. BLP met with Director, Nick Searcy to talk about the struggles he faced while making a film on a controversial issue in Hollywood. Searcy, who has a career in acting and directing, spoke about what moved him to get behind the movie. While there were many hurdles to overcome involving funding, marketing, and even showings of the film, the movie is now set to hit over 700 theaters across the country on October 12th.
