One of my personal favorite genre directors is Scott Derrickson, who broke onto the scene with The Exorcism of Emily Rose. He soon become a household horror name after scaring the crap out of people with Sinister.
Next up for Derrickson is Deliver Us From Evil, starring Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez, Olivia Munn, Joel McHale, and Sean Harris.
Bloody Disgusting is one of a select few sites to receive this first look exclusive image from the film. In it, Bana is arresting a man who appears to have carved “Invocamus Vi Ingredi Ab Inferi” into his chest! We tried to translate the Latin and got this: “We call upon…by virtue enter…the lower.” What does it mean?
It’s nice to see Screen Gems go out with such a shocking and attention-grabbing image for their 2014 preview!
In Deliver Us From Evil, “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.”
Look for it in theaters July 2, 2014.
