The first clip has been released from Deliver Us from Evil, the upcoming horror film from director Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Sinister). Based on the real-life cases of New York police officer Ralph Sarchie, Deliver Us from Evil tells the story of a cop (Eric Bana) who joins forces with an unconventional priest (Edgar Ramirez) in order to investigate a series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes. The clip sees Ralph’s daughter playing with a creepy jack-in-the-box, and Olivia Munn’s Jen Sarchie running upstairs to investigate her daughter’s screams. There’s no pay off per se in this snippet, but it’s a good demonstration of the film’s tense stylings. We’re looking forward to checking this one out.
