“Gosnell” may not be in as many theaters as mainstream Hollywood releases “Venom” and “First Man” are — but moviegoers are flocking to it anyway.
The true-crime film, which tells the story of the apprehension and trial of Philadelphia abortion doctor and serial killer Kermit Gosnell, could very well open in the top 10 at the domestic box office by the end of the weekend. Dean Cain (pictured above) is among those who star in it.
That’s quite an accomplishment, considering it was made and released completely outside of the Hollywood system.

Moviegoers, especially conservative and right-leaning ones, are currently giving the film incredible praise and positive reviews through social media.
“Wow. I’m shaking. Never had a movie impact me like this. God bless everyone involved. This film is a Trojan horse that is going to wake so many people up from their slumber,” said one Twitter user.
“Saw the movie ‘Gosnell.’ Everyone needs to see this movie,” wrote another.
“Just saw ‘Gosnell.’ Thank you @yesnicksearcy, @andrewklavan, @RealDeanCain, and everyone else involved for the most horrifying, heartbreaking, important movie-going experience of my life,” said yet another.
Many conservative commentators have also praised the film and are encouraging others to support it.
“Bring a friend. Change a mind. Support indie free thinkers, brave cast & crew,” wrote CRTV host Michelle Malkin.

Conservative musician Steve “Mudflap” McGrew said about the film, “The ‘Gosnell’ movie is a masterful work of art. It shows how real talent doesn’t need millions in budget or CGI” (computer-generated imagery).

The overwhelmingly positive response to “Gosnell” is incredibly important because this is a story that was first ignored by the mainstream media — and then by Hollywood, for political reasons.
The fact that the producers raised over $2 million through crowdfunding and then created a film that is as professionally made as anything a big Hollywood studio puts out means leftist Hollywood doesn’t need to be changed or influenced by conservatives and right-leaning artists. Non-leftist artists can work outside the system — and create something that is still great and worth seeing.
“Gosnell” proves it.

If you're hesitant to go see Gosnell because you fear it may be too graphic, don't worry because @yesnicksearcy did such a good job with it. It was very powerful without using the images of the murdered babies. Please support this movie and spread the word!
