Directed by Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Sinister), Deliver Us from Evil stars Eric Bana as Ralph Sarchie, a New York police detective who investigates a series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes. To combat a demonic entity that is terrorizing the Bronx, Sarchie joins forces with an unconventional priest (Édgar Ramírez) who is well-versed in the rituals of exorcism.
Written by Derrickson and Paul Harris Boardman, Deliver Us from Evil is based upon Beware the Night, a 2001 non-fiction book by Sarchie and co-writer Lisa Collier Cool that chronicles the retired NYPD sergeant’s encounters with the supernatural. The film is an amalgam of Derrickson’s previous work, blending the true crime elements of Sinister with The Exorcism of Emily Rose‘s exploration of demonic possession.
