These days, it seems like every summer has a big breakout horror hit. In 2014, the smart money is on Deliver Us From Evil. The film is from producer Jerry Bruckheimer, making the first horror movie in his long career, and is directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister) with stars Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez, Olivia Munn, Sean Harris, and Joel McHale.
Deliver Us From Evil is based on the true stories of New York Police Officer Ralph Sarchie (Bana) who is assigned numerous supernatural cases on his regular beat. He enlists the help of a priest (Ramirez) as the details of those cases become more and more unbelievable.
The latest Deliver Us From Evil trailer is now online, showing more of the super-creepiness that awaits come July 2. Check it out below. Read More »

This is a pretty unusual trailer. It begins in typical fashion with a lot of quick cuts and some ominous images tied together with dialogue voiceover. But then it settles down into basically one sequence. The trailer takes its time. We’ve seen a few other horror films do something like this (The Conjuring comes to mind) but this is still stands as an atypical trailer. And this one ends with a real Twin Peaks-worthy moment that worked for me. Read More »
