Scott Derrickson is most definitely a director to watch out for. After having helmed The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister, among others, he’s a pretty big deal in the horror genre right about now. His latest effort, Deliver Us From Evil, once again takes a stab at paranormal happenings and opens in theatres today.
Based on a true story, the film follows Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana), a special ops unit member who’s assigned to the most dangerous case of his career. Along with his partner Officer Butler (Joel McHale), the two stumble upon what seems to be a simple domestic disturbance. However, upon further investigation, they realize that they’re dealing with something much more horrific and bizarre.
Last weekend, at the film’s LA press day, we had the chance to sit down with Bana, McHale, Derrickson, Olivia Munn, Edgar Ramirez, Jerry Bruckheimer and the real life Ralph Sarchie. They discussed with us what spoke to them about this particular story, what it was like having the real life Sarchie on set, the importance of getting the facts right and more.
