Official Trailer: “DELIVER US FROM EVIL” Promises New York HorrorMovies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
It often feels that truly thrilling, city-based horror is few and far between, and yet there’s so much anxiety and fear to exploit on packed streets. Will DELIVER US FROM EVIL get it right? The new, lengthier official trailer makes it seem so. Scott Derrickson (SINISTER, THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE) went on location in the South Bronx and, alongside some heavy accents, looks to have crafted an ominous tale of possession plaguing urban landscape.
Based on true accounts in NYPD officer Ralph Sarchie’s book BEWARE THE NIGHT, DELIVER US FROM EVIL finds Eric Bana as Sarchie, “struggling with his own personal issues, 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.”
I might be a mark for DELIVER US FROM EVIL, as it targets both my hometown pride and love for the Zoo. If you need convincing, the trailer is below. DELIVER US FROM EVIL is out July 2, 2014.
