Tacking on a “based on a true story” tag has always helped bolster the scare factor of horror films, but its usage has become increasingly more frequent (and less fact-based) in recent years – though that doesn’t mean we’re suddenly in the golden age of reality-based horror films. Just because a film boasts about its real world roots doesn’t mean it’s always true. What’s really scary is how often it’s not.
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.
As films like 'The Conjuring' and 'The Last Exorcism' (Parts 1 and 2) tackled the exorcism/possession horror tale in new and, primarily in the case of the former, interesting ways, so too is 'Deliver Us From Evil,' the new trailer for which takes exorcism to the streets. If you can get past Eric Bana's New Yawkah accent and the fact that Olivia Munn is his wife, you'll be in for a scare or two.
The 'Deliver Us From Evil' trailer might feel a little familiar, but that's what happens when you have a horror film as successful as 'The Conjuring' -- everyone is going to want to copy that success. Here Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez, Olivia Munn and 'Community' star Joel McHale deal with the supernatural that's based on a real-life story.
