Posted on 10/15/2018 8:24:38 AM PDT by Morgana
Despite a media blackout and virtually no coverage outside conservative media circles, the new movie Gosnell made the list of top 10 movies across the United States over the weekend. Coming in at the #10 spot, Gosnell came in ahead of other movies with much wider releases as the film is appearing in just 673 theaters nationwide.
CDespite the more limited release, Gosnell outperformed A Simple Favor, The Nun, and the blockbuster film Crazy Rich Asians. Every other movie except for one that appeared higher in the weekend top 10 list was shown to Americans in thousands of theaters. It was also the only movie to gain in audience on Sunday, with over $1.23 million in ticket sales though the weekend. Every other movie saw a Sunday dropoff.
Had Gosnell opened in 2,800 theaters like other movies in the top 10 list it would have finished in 7th place for the weekend making it more popular per theater than The House With a Clock in Its Walls and Bad Times at the El Royale.
But those who are watching the movie are giving in tremendously high ratings. It has a 67% rating at Rotten Tomatoes and 99% of those viewing it said they liked it. Here are some of the reviews:
Well-acted and compelling. Even without going full-on graphic, the film achieves real power, says Mike McGranaghan.
Perhaps we should be glad that mainstream Hollywood, just like the mainstream media, had no interest in this story. Its almost impossible to believe they would have told it so well, adds Megan Basham.
And Christian Toto adds: Gosnell delivers one of the most chilling portraits of evil weve seen in ages.
Gosnell unmasks the shocking true story of the investigation and trial of Kermit Gosnell, a man who performed countless illegal, late-term abortions and murdered several born children as well.
He is the abortion practitioner who killed babies in live-birth abortions that were more akin to infanticide than abortion. The media virtually ignored Kermit Gosnell until the pro-life movement launched a concerned effort to call them out on their bias during the early stages of his trial for murder.
Now, Gosnell is prison, having been convicted of murder in the deaths of multiple babies,though he was accused of killing thousands of viable babies. Still, one report from Gallup showed a large percentage of Americans still have no idea who Gosnell is and what he did.
Gosnell: The Trial of Americas Biggest Serial Killer opened nationwide on October 12 and stars Dean Cain as the detective who put Gosnell behind bars.
I bought a ticket for support but didn’t go in. I just don’t want to see it.
it was excellent, you should have gone in.
I read about it. No thanks. I makes my stomach turn.
Why not? You will see a wedding and a mother loving her children.
Even now just thinking about makes me want to throw up.
I watched it last Friday. It was hard to watch in parts (for me), but it was very good. I highly recommend. Maybe this will be the beginning of something.
My wife bought a ticket for Friday but didn’t use it. I was on a camping trip and couldn’t go.
We’re going to see it tomorrow.
Three years ago the Movie producers put it up for funding on Idegogo(sp), I donated then and when it comes out on CD I will get one. Going to be hard to watch as some have said.
“Maybe this will be the beginning of something.”
Oh it will be! Wait till it comes out on DVD or is shown on Christian TV stations.
“Silence is guilty and the truth can talk.”

Actor who plays Gosnell deserves academy award. Only one song in film at end Song of Innocence deserves award
Beautiful so sad you might expect to hear at a film about the holocaust. You can hear it on breibart.
Morgana, what a thrill to see this brave movie finish in top ten with no advertising except people like us.
So ironic and evil that our press and Democrats are silent or denigrate pro life Americans who protest the deliberate killing of our next generations when they support open borders and not separating illegal aliens being separated for their children!
Thank the movie theaters who showed this film despite intimidations.
God bless all those who supported the truth that
Abortion Kills Children.
A nation that kills its own children is a nation without hope.

The movie does “justice” but the real story is a HORROR story that even Hollywood could never reproduce. It is grotesque to even Nazi standards. This case is one of thousands unreported horrors and abortion murder mills still running. This alone should raise the issue of abortion and destroy it as government sanctioned and funded MURDER. If the left wants to start a civil war over abortion so be it. Civil wars have been started by much less.
