Does this sound like a good Halloween flick to anybody?

I wonder how wide of a distribution this will get and how well it will really do?
Rachel is a special, beautiful girl with an interesting and in some ways uncommon life story but I wonder how many would actually go to a theater to see a movie about a single victim from a school shooting that took place 17 years ago now.I think this will do much better on the home video market.

I also wonder if there will actually be trailers shown on national TV for this?

I am not going to pay to see it. If it comes out on any of the services I already subscribe to I would watch it I guess but it is not the truth and I would watch it like I would any work of fiction. It is as real to me as Forrest Gump

Theaters?? I was under the impression that this was a made for tv movie... No offense but I can't imagine it doing well in theaters. Maybe if it wasn't a Christian propaganda movie, but it being what it is I can't imagine a massive amount of people paying to see it.

I don't think it will even screen in my country, not even on TV.

The movie poster. A couple of familiar names there.

JuicyJazzy,
I know that you are a big admirer of Rachel.
What is your take on the questions I asked above?

I hope it is not in the theaters, or get any attention in my country.. People don't even know about Columbine over here as it wasn't a big news story and i'd rather a feature length accurate documentary in the cinema, rather than this movie being their only exposure to the massacre, then they'd all get the wrong idea.

It'll probably be contained to the US only, in regards to a cinematic release. I'm not expecting there to be televised trailers. I remember reading that they originally had trouble finding someone who would distribute the film, so I'm sure even in the States that it'll have a limited release only. I don't know how well the movie 'God's Not Dead' performed there but I suspect the numbers could be similar as it is a Christian themed movie also. I agree with you about how this film should be released only online and on DVD/Bluray. You know what's interesting is that heaps of people who knew Rachel were condemning this movie on social media, they even made a FB page 'Boycott 'I'm Not Ashamed' Movie', but now I hear nothing about it anymore and that page has also been taken down.

Your location is set as England - did you walk round with your eyes closed that week after the massacre? It was all over the TV and papers for days & we had the live pictures as it actually happened.

How unfortunate that they've turned a message of kindness in Rachel's honor to a religious propaganda film as someone else pointed out. I don't have a problem with religion if it's practised in a way that doesn't impact people negatively, but there was more to Rachel than this.

Amen! Each of the victims are unique, with their own identities, personalities and qualities that make them unique. For some reason, Rachel Scott is the face of Columbine, while many of the other victims are forgotten. I'm guessing this has to do with Rachel's Challenge. She, too, had her own identity, personality and qualities, but I'm guessing this movie is going to be more religion based and , to me, that's sad.

I don't mean to dishonor Rachel in any way.

I'm usually very much against religious propaganda movies, but I'll probably see this simply because it's Columbine related and I want to see how badly they skew the truth.

Maybe in your area, I haven't met anybody who even knows what Columbine is. I'd even research on it in the public library and people still had no clue. I've never seen Columbine mentioned on British television, other than documentaries on the crime channel, then again I don't watch the news.

It doesn't get mentioned anymore (unless there's a shooting elsewhere), but when it happened it was absolutely massive nationally.

I didn't hear about Columbine until 2007, and what I meant is that if this movie came out in theaters in the UK, this would be their only exposure to Columbine (most people would have forgotten about a news story about a crime in another land from 17 years ago). And they would probably just think that E+D were targeting Christians.

Oh no. If the Robertsons of Duck Dynasty are in it, I am sure I won't bother to see the movie. I was uncertain if I wanted to see it just to see all the errors and misinformation it contained, but now I have no desire to watch it.

There's another thread about this movie under Documents, and I just posted over there that there's another video on YouTube called "everything that's wrong with I'm Not Ashamed" that has more clips of E&D's characters. It shows their version of them filming the basement tapes and unfortunately it looks like they went with the BS version of events where Eric gets up close to Rachel, and appears to be touching her while questioning her faith. The camera also cuts to Dylan while this was happening and they made him look creepy af.

Not really surprised that they went in that direction, but Its still disappointing. A lot of people who aren't aware of the details of the tragedy are  gonna take this version of events as factual and that's really a shame.

*edited sorry the other thread is under Media, not Documents!

I was worried their daughter was going to play Rachel. What a turn of events that would be.

Probably just here and in similar forums. I don't think it will be a blockbuster, shoot I'd be surprised if it went to theaters. It just angers me that this myth has been debunked for YEARS, and yet, here we are with some more propaganda.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] I wonder if the Robertsons have invested in this travesty. Sadie, Kore and Bella Robertson are all listed as cast. I would do some thorough research before I leant my name to something like this, and I'm a nobody.

IMHO I don't think they have researched anything. They are very open "christian" people and I think they saw the word GOD associated with this "horrific event" and attached to that. The word martyr brings in a lot of fake people.

Lol I was bitching to my husband about this movie after watching the trailer, "They're still perpetrating lies! Gah, the only one who said yes SURVIVED!" He said to me, "It's been 17 years, why is this in the spotlight again?" I can only speculate that the Robertsons have invested in this, using what little fame they have left, thinking it's an uplifting testament to Christianity.

It's too late now to educate them on the cold hard facts since the movie's been made, but maybe someone can reach out to them and kindly educate them on the facts. Hell, a perusing a few pages of the 11k in the Library Witness section would clear this up as would Castaldo's recanting of the events leading up to Rachel's murder.

Any word on whether the Scotts have commented on this? Is it my imagination that I've read somewhere that Craig himself is clocking out on this mess

The reason why this is cringeworthy to me and I do not like this is because in the first place, I - bluntly speaking -, do not like that unsurprisingly, the most popular girl is the one who got most of the mourning, attention and let alone all this christian propaganda surrounding her which her family put out excessively after her death. How do we know most of it is even what Rachel ever said or wanted? Even in death, the most popular person gets worshipped, and the other victims get overshadowed. Who's to say she was absolutely perfect. After that Cassie's family did the same. Both the girls' family tried to sell the same thing and neither of them were the ones asked that one you believe in God question. Quit speaking for the dead, you don't know what they want and you're doing all these publicity in their name. How come we never talked about the other victims? Why don't they get a movie? not about their religious beliefs but about their own lives? That would be more appreciated by me and relatable to me. Like Lauren's movie based on her mom Dawn Anna, that one was pretty good. I watched it and I liked it. It was sad. Make a movie about Daniel or something. Kyle, Kelly, Isaiah, Corey. I want THAT.
Make a movie about a teenager who was flawed and an outsider too and they had to get killed. Make a movie and a story for the ones who were always the outcasts.

I mean, couldn't they take legal action to stop its release? They have resources available in abundance to them. If it were my family and somebody was making a movie I didn't agree to/with, I would try any avenue to keep it from being released.
