While on set for Scott Derrickson’s Deliver Us From Evil in the utterly creepy sanctuary of a dilapidated church in the Bronx, we were able to speak to former NYPD officer Ralph Sarchie about his experience not only in the NYPD and in the paranormal, but also at having the book based on his life turned into a movie, with Erica Bana playing him. He spoke about how all of this came about, a bit about his spirituality and experience with the devil, and about the strangeness of being part of a movie filming in the same location he once chased a perpetrator down the street.
Deliver Us From Evil is a paranormal thriller inspired by real-life cases recorded in a book by former NYPD officer Sarchie (Eric Bana), who is originally a skeptic, but encounters a priest (Edgar Ramirez) who convinces him that an inexplicable case is actually caused by demons and other paranormal forces. The film also stars Joel McHale, Olivia Munn, Chris Coy and Sean Harris. Hit the jump for my interview with Sarchie.
