Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose director Scott Derrickson returns to the genre with one of the most anticipated horror films of the year, Deliver Us From Evil. I’ve been keeping a close eye on this one around these parts because Derrickson proved with Sinister that he knows how to scare an audience with slow, grueling tension and any horror film with his name on it is certainly worth paying attention to. The first trailer for the film has been released and it is far from disappointing as we get to see the devil do his dirty deeds.
The exorcism genre has been making a comeback over the years, but aside from James Wan’s The Conjuring, a truly haunting exorcism scene is hard to find. Derrickson looks to have raised the bar with this one, and if this trailer is any indicator, I’d say we are in store for one hell of a ride. Check out the trailer below!
Deliver Us from Evil is the story of a New York cop who meets a renegade priest when he is pulled into a case which the priest convinces him, against the officer’s religious beliefs, is demonic related. Together they work to solve the case and combat the paranormal forces working against them.
Deliver Us From Evil stars Eric Bana alongside Edgar Ramirez, Olivia Munn, Joel McHale, and Sean Harris
