Not ashamed of... ?

Am I missing something?

The girl this revolves around was one of the Columbine victims. She and her parents were "born again" Christians. This was widely publicized by her parents, and a rumor followed that before they shot her they asked her if she believed in God. Even if they did say that, it was probably just an offhand snide way of saying "YOU'RE GONNA DIE LOL!" But as we know, everyone loves to play a persecuted victim, especially the religious right. So the whole thing was spun by evangelicals into this girl being a brave Chrisitan martyr who was murder by two godless heathens who were targeting Christians.

I'm amazed it took this long for this film to become real, honestly.

I'm surprised it's not about Cassie Bernell, but I think that money well ran out a while back.

I got the context and christian spin bit of it.

The title is the thing that just bugs me. It makes no sense for this movie to be called "I am not ashamed." What's shame got to do with anything?

Was she being Christian-shamed? Was that a thing?

I would have titled this movie "YES: the story of [victim name]" and I think that would have gelled better with the gimmick of the killers asking her if she believed in god before killing her.

Ah, B. Weed, I'm partially mistaken. It was Cassie Bernall, not Rachel Joy Scott, who that whole rumor (and subsequent debunking) originally revolved around. But later it was attributed to Rachel Joy Scott and another girl, even though eye witnesses say that the perpetrators didn't say anything to these people before shooting them.

The more you know.

It's hard to believe, but at some level these people understand that professing faith in a collection of religious beliefs formulated by ancient peoples ignorant of even the basic mechanics of rainfall is kind of ..embarrassing. So yeah, the whole "shame" thing is an issue in this community.

Honestly, I got about halfway through and thought it was a story about the girl having a girl-boner for one of the killers. As you say, it could stand a better title.

So the Jesus industry has finally entered the 90s nostalgia fray, I see.

You have to give it to them, that's some shrewd marketing.

This is a special greasy kind of stick to your hands and oh god now it's on your mouth kind of gross exploitation film.

This is a crack house prostitution ring of a movie.

The best kind.

Oh my God. Oh dear God no.

Of all the ways Pureflix has propagated this persecution complex paranoia through their Christploitation films, this is easily the most disgusting thing they've done so far. Easily. Spinning one of the worst tragedies of the 1990's into this typical "us vs. them" fare to make more millions off ignorant people who don't know any better is just...I don't have the words. Shame on you, Pureflix.

Read "Columbine" by Dave Cullen. Read more books than the people who encourage Pureflix by paying to see these stupid movies. Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold are a case study in a dangerous pairing, where a sociopath and a manic depressive follower fed off and empowered each other until it spun out of control. What they ultimately did was a terrible terrible thing that should have never happened, but their story is a lot more complex than two guys with shit-eating grins who drew swastikas on their textbooks and later decided to shoot some God-fearing Christians.

The Cassie Bernall story, later Rachel Joy Scott, was a falsehood picked up and spread by evangelicals, but you go right ahead and exploit the fuck out of it, movie. You go right ahead, because I trust the brains behind "God's Not Dead" to treat this delicate material with dignity and respect.

I've been seeing ads for these things in various places the last month or so (on tv for their current one, the girl that supposedly had all her illnesses disappear) and I think God's Not Dead in the 'coming attractions' for some streaming service or something, and...yeah. This stuff is pretty gross. I can only guess just how gross this one will be.

The whole 'group tickets available!' at the end of every ad for the former abovementioned always gets me, insofar as it's clear the film is predicated on church groups being their primary audience for this drek.

I'm glad she miraculously resurrected from the dead to tell us this true story.
