Less is More in Creepy “DELIVER US FROM EVIL” TeaserMovies/TV,News Ken W. Hanley
Have you ever experienced true evil? It’s a question posed in this first trailer for Scott Derrickson’s moody follow-up to the successful and impressive SINISTER, DELIVER US FROM EVIL. Starring Eric Bana, Edgar Rodriguez, Olivia Munn and Joel McHale, and based off the true stories of NYPD Sergeant Ralph Sarchie, DELIVER US FROM EVIL seems like a much bigger production than SINISTER, even if the latter half of the trailer is evident of the tonality and minimalism of his last film.
Out July 2nd from Sony and Screen Gems, DELIVER US FROM EVIL also happens to be the return to horror for producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who helped lend some of technical finesse to the production. True crime horror is a tricky subject to get right, but something tells this writer Derrickson may be the right man for the job, and the trailer is evocative of chilling potential from the ominous narration and the hints at the supernatural presence.
