New Photos: Bana and Ramirez in Derrickson’s “DELIVER US FROM EVIL”

DeliverUsEvilFeat

DELIVER US FROM EVIL is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated major horror titles of 2014. Not only is it director Scott Derrickson’s follow-up to the highly praised SINISTER, but it’s slated for early July, a month that was a wonderful fit for 2013’s THE CONJURING and one that boasts confidence in the film on Sony’s part. Not to mention, Jaume Collet-Serra’s awesome ORPHAN did pretty well for itself there in summer 2009. Thirdly, and this is entirely more specific to me, DELIVER US FROM EVIL was shot on location, and takes place in, The Bronx. Hometown horror is a highly exciting prospect, and moreover, good, urban, city-based horror is all too rare. 

Based on the true account of NY police seargeant Ralph Sarchie BEWARE THE NIGHT, DELIVER US FROM EVIL finds Eric Bana playing Sarchie, an NYPD officer struggling with his own personal issues, who “begins investigating a series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes.  He joins forces with an unconventional priest (Edgar Ramirez), schooled in the rituals of exorcism, to combat the frightening and demonic possessions that are terrorizing their city.”

DELIVER US FROM EVIL is in theaters July 2, 2014.
