Deliver Us from Evil, a new supernatural thriller from director Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Sinister), will hit theaters on July 2. It has a fantastic cast (Eric Bana, Olivia Munn, Édgar Ramírez, Joel McHale and Sean Harris), a great premise and we wouldn’t be surprised if it turned out to be a crowd pleaser in the same vein as last year’s The Conjuring.
In the film, “New York police officer Ralph Sarchie (Bana), struggling with his own personal issues, begins investigating a series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes. He joins forces with an unconventional priest (Ramirez), schooled in the rituals of exorcism, to combat the frightening and demonic possessions that are terrorizing their city. Based upon the book, which details Sarchie’s bone-chilling real-life cases.” Hit the jump to find out why we think it might be this summer’s surprise hit.
