I am looking forward to watching the November 11th film about the murder of Reeva Steenkap by her boyfriend Oscar Pistorioius with his legal maneuverings to avoid paying for this crime. I remember when he said that he thought it was an intruder that was in the bathroom and he HAD to shoot multiple times. It sounded fishy and just an excuse to kill the woman who was trying to leave him. Check out the trailer and tell me what you think. Should he be in jail or free to prey on other innocent women …
OSCAR PISTORIUS: BLADE RUNNER KILLER
PREMIERES SATURDAY NOVEMBER 11 AT 8pm ET/PT ON LIFETIME!
“Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer” tells the story of the sprint runner dubbed the “Blade Runner,” and his rise to fame as a gold medalist Paralympic champion and as the first double-leg amputee to participate in the Olympics. Oscar’s (Andreas Damm, “Elementary”) resilience to overcome his disability combined with his apparent fairy tale relationship with model Reeva Steenkap (Toni Garrn, “Under the Bed”) turned him into a media favorite. This all shattered one Valentine’s Day night when four bullets were fired and Reeva’s life was taken. Her brutal death shocked the world and the court room drama that followed consumed the news. “Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer” provides an inside look at the events leading up to Reeva’s killing, the cracks that formed in the relationship between Oscar and Reeva, as well as the courtroom drama that followed, revealing what happened on that tragic night.
The film was produced by Eric Tomosunas and Swirl Films for Thinkfactory Media and executive produced by Leslie Greif. The film will have its world television premiere on November 11, 2017 on Lifetime. Norman Stone serves as director; Amber Benson is the writer.
