The pro-life film “Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer” has topped the list of best-selling DVDs on Amazon weeks ahead of its release.

“Gosnell” hit No. 1 Tuesday evening on Amazon’s “Best Sellers in DVD” list, which is updated hourly, topping high-profile movies like “A Star is Born” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.” It’s scheduled for release on Feb. 5.

Phelim McAleer, one of the “Gosnell” movie producers, said in a statement emailed to supporters and The Christian Post on Wednesday that he was not surprised by the early success of DVD sales.

“People really want to learn about Gosnell. They want to hear the truth. This story has been covered up since the beginning but thanks to the movie the coverup is ending. It is the number 1 movie in the U.S. today,” said McAleer. “This is a great movie and tells an amazing American story. There is a real hunger for that.”

The movie was based off the real-life story of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who on May 13, 2013, was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of one patient and of three first-degree murder charges for the deaths of three babies at the abortion clinic he operated in West Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

During his trial in 2013, his abortion clinic was described as a “house of horrors” in which the abortionist severed babies’ hands and feet and kept them in jars of formaldehyde and where 47 dead babies were recovered.
