First Trailer for Supernatural Thriller DELIVER US FROM EVIL Starring Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez, and Olivia Munn [Updated with International Trailer]

Screen Gems has released the first trailer for director Scott Derrickson’s (Sinister) supernatural thriller Deliver Us from Evil.  The film stars Eric Bana as a New York police officer who teams up with an unconventional priest (Edgar Ramirez) to investigate a series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes.  It’s tough to make a genuinely scary horror film, but Derrickson very much succeeded with last year’s Sinister and this trailer shows the director’s penchant for building tension.  Though the trailer is pretty light on plot, it does a nice job of conveying the mood and tone of the pic, and I’m hoping the full feature offers a solid story hook.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Olivia Munn, Joel McHale, and Sean HarrisDeliver Us from Evil opens July 2nd.

SINISTER Blu-ray Review

ethan-hawke-sinister-slice

Here’s the thing about Sinister: it knows that we’re onto it.  A lot of horror movies evince a certain self-awareness, but Sinister doesn’t use it to nudge us in the ribs. It uses it to scare the holy crap out of us. The big reveal (which I daren’t mention here) involves one of the oldest clichés in the genre: the kind that makes audience members say “why don’t they just…?” and destroy the whole movie in the process. Sinister has our number, and is more than happy to punch it up as often as it can. Hit the jump for my full review.

Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions is following the “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” school of thought when it comes to micro-budget horror franchises.  Having seen great success with the Paranormal Activity series and with the second installment of Insidious due out later this summer, a sequel to last fall’s Sinister is now in the works.  Reportedly made for $3 million and bringing in around $80 million worldwide, the money is clearly behind forging ahead with establishing a third franchise.  Fans of the original will be happy to hear that the creative talent behind the camera will reunite for the sequel.  Hit the jump for more.

Director/co-writer Scott Derrickson’s horror film Sinister scored big at the box office this past weekend, and now he’s teaming back up with Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Pictures (the studio behind the Paranormal Activity films) to tackle a Stephen King adaptation.  Deadline reports that Derrickson will direct an adaptation of The Breathing Method, a story found in King’s collection Different Seasons.

The story opens in an exclusive gentleman’s club where the only price for membership is the telling of stories.  One man begins to recount the tale of a woman in the 1930s who was determined to give birth to her illegitimate child, no matter the cost.  She seeks out the physician author of a book on the Breathing Method of childbirth, and grows close with the doctor as her determination fails to wane.  Scott Teems (That Evening Sun) will write the script, and the film will likely follow Blumhouse’s “low budget, high profit” model.

Words cannot express the horrific potential this new red-band trailer for Sinister has to scare you.  Unlike the first trailer for Scott Derrickson’s upcoming horror film, no one utters a word in the red-band trailer and the effect is vastly improved.  After the exhausting runs of the Saw and Paranormal Activity franchises, getting back to basics is a relief.  While the premise for Sinister isn’t exactly original and continues to invoke the current “found footage” gimmick (though with a slightly new angle), it looks like it could be a truly scary film.

Sinister stars Ethan Hawke, Juliet Rylance and James Ransone and opens October 12th, but you can see it first by bringing an early screening to your hometown.  Hit the jump to see the new red-band trailer.

Scott Derrickson to Direct Paranormal Police Thriller BEWARE THE NIGHT

by     Posted 1 year, 230 days ago

beware the night scott derrickson

Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose) has signed on to direct the paranormal police thriller Beware the Night.  According to The Wrap, Derrickson will also rewrite the script: “The story is set in a paranormal world and follows a New York police officer investigating real life demon possessions, exorcisms and werewolves after dark.”  The project is housed at Screen Gems, but The Wrap hears producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Carribbean) and Disney are involved in some capacity, Beware the Night could be a much bigger production than your typical supernatural flick.  The lead role was reportedly offered to Mark Wahlberg, but he passed.  [Update: The Wrap updated their report.  Paul Boardman will co-write the screenplay.  Bruckheimer's name is now omitted from the report, and the edited text states Screen Gems is in negotiations with Disney for the rights.]

Derrickson followed up the low-budget Emily Rose with would-be tentpole The Day the Earth Stood Still.  Derrickson returned to small-scale horror for his latest film, Sinister, which hits theaters on October 5.
