Kurt Cobain death conspiracy film Soaked in Bleach gets trailer
New docudrama examines theories surrounding the Nirvana star's death
Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain died 20 years ago last Saturday and now, the first look trailer for a docudrama examining his passing has been released.
Interviews with witnesses and experts feature in Soaked in Bleach, which offers an as-yet-unseen perspective of the tragic 1994 events.
Narrator and former detective Tom Grant was hired by Cobain’s widow Courtney Love to track down her husband when he went missing, just days before his body was found at their Seattle home.
The rock star’s death was ruled a suicide but there have been multiple conspiracy theories since. Grant’s private investigations reportedly determined that there was enough evidence to suggest that foul play could have occurred.
One such (repeatedly debunked) theory explored is that Cobain’s death by a self-inflicted gunshot was in fact a murder, plotted by Love so that she could inherit his fortune.
The film comes despite the following statement from Detective Mike Ciesynski of the Seattle Police Department: “Sometimes people believe what they read – some of the disinformation from some of the books – that this was a conspiracy. That’s completely inaccurate. It’s a suicide. This is a closed case.”

Benjamin Statler is directing Soaked in Bleach, which also includes speculative dramatic re-enactments of the aftermath. Tyler Bryan has been cast as Cobain, with Sarah Scott playing Love and Daniel Roebuck taking on the role of Grant.
The title is taken from a lyric penned by Cobain for Nirvana’s 1992 hit “Come As You Are”. The movie’s Facebook page reads “coming soon in 2014” but an exact realise date is yet to be confirmed.
