Eric Bana ain't afraid of no ghosts in the trailer for Deliver Us From Evil

03.07.2014

The last few years have seen a resurgence in horror movies that rely less on gore rather than well crafted scares. THE CONJURING serves as the best example of how to achieve chills without showing too much, but films like INSIDIOUS and SINISTER have been pretty good as well. If anything, it is nice to see horror movies being released by studios that are not found footage.

This summer, Eric Bana and Olivia Munn will headline a horror movie from director Scott Derrickson (SINISTER) and producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Previously known as BEWARE THE NIGHT, the film is now titled DELIVER US FROM EVIL and we now have the first trailer.

In DELIVER US FROM EVIL, New York police officer Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana), struggling with his own personal issues, begins investigating a series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes. He joins forces with an unconventional priest (Edgar Ramírez), schooled in the rituals of exorcism, to combat the frightening and demonic possessions that are terrorizing their city. Inspired by the book, which details Sarchie's bone-chilling real-life cases.

This is an effective, if formulaic, teaser that doesn't seem to shed too much light on the plot of the film. But, in keeping with the same scares as THE CONJURING, the trailer builds the tension with one nice jump scare at the end. Absent from the trailer is Joel McHale making a rare dramatic turn. This could end up being just another horror flick for the pile, especially with the cliche "based on a true story" tag, but I really like Eric Bana and hope this represents a successful turn for him.

DELIVER US FROM EVIL hits theaters on July 2, 2014.

UPDATE: The international trailer for DELIVER US FROM EVIL leans much more heavily on the exorcism aspect and the rogue priest played by Edgar Ramirez. It gives a completely different experience than the domestic trailer and almost feels like a cross between FALLEN and END OF DAYS. Which trailer do you prefer?

Sean Harris gives great psycho. I guess this will be the Hollywood movie that guarantees his playing psychos for US audiences for years to come.

It looks ok but can't we have one horror movie where they don't have to claim that it's "real" to get morons to go see it. Paranormal things only exist in movies, grow up.

While the sentiment is understood (and I have no idea what percentage of this is absolute fabrication) it says it's based on Ralph Sarchie's book, Sarchie being the character Bana plays.

I can wholeheartedly tell you, from personal experiences, that paranormal occurrences are not just things that happen in movies. I suppose I'll go grow up now.

If you think that ghosts are real then there's no point in talking to you because you're an idiot, just go and watch ghost hunters and chasing bigfoot. There's a reason they never find them, because they don't exist.

And who cares if it's based on a book, the guy was just a liar, simple as that.

Looks good. We need more great horror films like Conjuring, Insidious, Sinister, The Possession, etc.

The first trailer was a nice little mood piece. The second felt like a completely different movie. But it looks like a good role for Eric Bana.

bad trailer. Had my interest, then dragged on, and had a disappointing cyborg looking mutant from an 80s movie.
