The investigation into Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain‘s death has been criticized by many for 20 years. All types of voices have screamed incompetence at police, while others shout conspiracy, believing that Cobain’s wife, Courtney Love, had a hand in Kurt’s death. Those themes have been turned into the docudrama ‘Soaked in Bleach, which will surely force viewers to reconsider their presumptions of Kurt Cobain’s suicide.
Interest in Kurt Cobain has hit a peak recently, as the 20th anniversary of his death recently passed by on April 5. Countless tributes were paid, but with the world focused on Cobain once again, the time couldn’t be more perfect to release a trailer for ‘Soaked in Bleach,’ a new docudrama featuring actors playing the roles of Cobain and Love.
The four-minute-long trailer showcases interview clips with individuals such as Private Investigator Tom Grant, who was hired by Love “to find her missing husband.” However, Grant shares that a number of red flags began popping up while dealing with Courtney Love, leading the investigator to believe something was awry. “This woman’s husband had just been found dead and there didn’t seem to be any sadness whatsoever. It’s not very often that a private investigator accuses his client of committing a crime.”
Further experts from the fields of Forensic Science, Forensic Document Examination and Investigative Journalism are also interviewed for the film, as is former Chief of Police for the Seattle PD, Norm Stamper. “I would tell you right now that if I were the Chief today, I would re-open this investigation.”
‘Soaked in Bleach’ is tentatively slated for a 2014 release. Watch the official trailer above. To check out the film’s Facebook page, click here.
