“Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer” is currently the No. 1 bestseller on Amazon’s DVD section as many are pre-ordering the DVD ahead of its February 5th release date.
The film tells the true story of the trial and arrest of late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell who was eventually convicted for the murder of three infants born alive during abortion procedures and for the involuntary manslaughter of a patient, Karnamaya Mongar.
The film’s producers Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer commented on the success of the movie’s DVD sales.
“We’re elated with the achievement, but not surprised,” they said in an email to the film’s supporters. “People really want to learn about Kermit Gosnell. They want to hear the truth. We’ve faced obstacles at every step in the process from Hollywood and the mainstream media. But thanks to all of you who saw the movie, took your friends, and spread the word, the coverup is ending.”
"Massive DVD sales show just how much the mainstream is failing to keep this story out of the headlines," the producers emphasized. "There’s a real hunger for a great movie and an American story."
Some of the obstacles the producers and director Nick Searcy faced included being kicked off of the crowdfunding site Kickstarter due to the film’s subject matter.
However, their film went on to break a crowdfunding record on Indiegogo.
