New ‘Deliver Us From Evil’ Trailer: Is This the Scariest Film of 2014?

The new ‘Deliver Us From Evil‘ trailer is here and it’s selling a film that could easily be the scariest release of 2014. A combination of police procedural and demonic possession movie, it looks like a fresh spin on material that’s seen plenty of play in the past few years. Could this be the next ‘The Conjuring‘? That’s high praise for a movie that doesn’t hit theaters for another month and a half, but it looks like it could be.

Eric Bana and Edgar Ramirez lead the cast, playing a police officer and a priest who find their city subjected to all kinds of devilish activity and respond accordingly. The new trailer is full of tried and true genre tropes — Self mutilation! Creepy kids toys! — but the buddy cop angle gives it a fresh coat of paint. Of course, the film gets extra points because it’s director Scott Derrickson’s follow-up to ‘Sinister‘ and that was one terrifying movie.

Here’s the official synopsis:

New York police officer Ralph Sarchie, struggling with his own personal issues, begins investigating a series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes. He joins forces with an unconventional priest, schooled in the rituals of exorcism, to combat the frightening and demonic possessions that are terrorizing their city.

‘Deliver Us From Evil’ hits theaters on July 2, 2014. Smack dab in the middle of the summer may seem like an odd release date for a horror movie, but ‘The Conjuring’ cleaned up at the box office with a July release and Sony is obviously hoping for something similar to happen here. In any case, this is going to be a welcome reprieve from the superhero movies and transforming robots.
