The Real Faces Behind "Deliver Us From Evil"

We see the tag line "based on true events" so often, I feel we've become desensitized to it. Often, we imagine those events were quite normal in contrast to the fantastical happenings on film...and a lot of the time we are probably right. A recent film even stated it was based on an experiment that took place once upon a time! An experiment..not what followed..not events that were ignited while the experiment took place....just the concept of the experiment itself! Flimsy. Today, we meet Ralph Sarchie, former Police Detective, now full time Demonologist. For Ralph, scenes from horror films took place every day as he protected the public from murderers and thieves. His life as a Demonologist has revealed horrors that might make you swear off creepy movies all together.

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 Ramírez), schooled in the rituals of exorcism, to combat the frightening and demonic possessions that are terrorizing their city.  Inspired by the book, which details Sarchie’s bone-chilling real-life cases.

The film stars Eric Bana, Olivia Munn, Edgar Ramirez, Sean Harris and Joel McHale.  The film is directed by Scott Derrickson and executive produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.
