'Unprecedented' 98% positive rating for 'Gosnell'

Despite a near complete blackout of national media coverage, the controversial film “Gosnell; The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” has scored a 98% percent positive rating from movie fans on RottenTomatoes.com.

Producers tell WND it’s “unprecedented” and “by far the highest audience score of any feature film currently in theaters.”

The massive wave of popularity among fans is in sharp contrast to establishment-media critics who have mostly refused to review the film. Despite being made available to all critics, the film was only reviewed by two major publications, the Los Angeles Times and TheWrap.com.

While “Gosnell” has a 98% score from 1,439 viewers who rated the film, only 11 reviews from professional critics have been posted at RottenTomatoes, earning only a 55% positive rating.

“We are thrilled and honored to have such a wonderful reaction from viewers,” noted the film’s producer, Phelim McAleer. “They have responded in unprecedented numbers with overwhelming positive reviews. Many have said it changed their lives.”

“This sends a message to the mainstream media. Your attempt to blacklist this film didn’t work. The people have spoken. The cover-up stops now.”

“Gosnell” is the true story of the investigation and trial of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell – his 30 year killing spree and the political and media establishment that tried to cover it up. The trial became hugely controversial after it went mostly uncovered amid allegations that the left-leaning media establishment was censoring a story that shone a negative light on abortion. Eventually the trial was covered by the mainstream media after a massive citizen-journalist and social-media campaign.
