"How many things are now called the worst evil, which are only twelve feet wide and three months long! But some day greater dragons will come into the world."- FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
Starring the incredibly talented Australian super hunk, Eric Bana (Lone Survivor, Troy, Munich) and Venezuelan heart throb Edgar Ramirez, a new American crime-horror story directed by Scott Derrickson debuts in theaters July 2nd. "Deliver Us From Evil" is based on the factual accounts of Ralph Sarchie (Bana) a New York cop who encounters a renegade priest, Mendoza (Ramirez), after being pulled into a supernatural case. The priest tries to convince Sarchie, against his religious beliefs, that all of the strange and horrifying occurrences are demonically related. Together, the unlikely duo collaborate to solve an epic mystery, combating paranormal forces working against them.
The movie may conjure up weak comparisons to "Se7en", "Silence of the Lambs", "The Exorcist" and Derrickson's own "Exorcism of Emily Rose". Bana and Ramirez make for a memorable team with HBO's Newsroom's gorgeous Olivia Munn and former Community star, comedian Joel McHale rounding out the cast . If creepy, bone chilling and disturbing are your magic mix for a spooky thrill ride, hold on to your popcorn and don't miss the darkness.
