The first clip from Scott Derrickson’s upcoming psychological horror film Deliver Us from Evil really stresses the fact that a potential homeowner should request a paranormal investigation as part of the real estate appraisal process.  What might seem like faulty electrical wiring, uneven door frames, and slanting floorboards could actually be the caused by a more common problem: poltergeists.  If this has happened to you, do yourself a favor and order an exorcism as soon as possible; it really helps to increase your home’s resale value.  Oh, and keep those Jack-in-the-Boxes properly tuned.

Deliver Us from Evil stars Eric BanaEdgar RamirezJoel McHale, and Olivia Munn, and opens July 2nd.  Hit the jump to watch the first Deliver Us from Evil clip.

Check out the first clip from Deliver Us from Evil below (via Yahoo!):

It’s hard to tell from this brief clip that the story of Deliver Us from Evil actually has more to do with a police officer’s encounters with the paranormal in his daily job, so I wouldn’t discount the entire movie just based on this limited angle.  I hope there’s more to this scene – scratches on the door, a shadowy figure waiting in the closet, evil termites, something – because it lacked originality and that gut punch that’s so necessary for a successful horror movie.  I’ll wait to see a bit more from this one, especially since Marvel must have seen something they liked, enough to enter into talks with Derrickson to direct Doctor Strange.

Here’s the official synopsis for Deliver Us from Evil:

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 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.
