The Murder of Nicole Brown Simpson is a 2019 American film based on the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson. The film presents an alternative theory of who her killer could have been, serial killer Glen Edward Rogers, as opposed to the main suspect, her ex-husband, O. J. Simpson.[1][2] The Murder of Nicole Brown Simpson was directed by Daniel Farrands.[3]

Though Mena Suvari's performance as Nicole Brown was praised, film was met with an overwhelmingly negative reaction.[4]

Reception[edit]

Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a 0% approval rating, based on 9 reviews, with an average rating of 1.07/10.[5] Frank Scheck of The Hollywood Reporter gave the film a negative review, stating that it (along with several of the director's other films) was the equivalent of "cinematic graverobbing" and that one of the film's only fans will likely be O. J. Simpson.[6] Guy Lodge of Variety also gave it a negative review, calling it an "unabashedly tacky true-crime thriller" and writing that "it's a cheap, unloving death march of a movie", though Lodge offered some praise to Mena Suvari in the title role.[7]
