I totally meant to witness this one during its initial release, but alas, life got in the way and that was the end of that. But, this sucker still looks awesome, and for those of you who are still waiting to witness this one will soon be able to in the comfort of your own home, as this one is making its way to Blu-ray & DVD.
From the Press Release:
From the director that brought audiences Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose comes the action-packed thriller DELIVER US FROM EVIL, debuting on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD October 28th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
DELIVER US FROM EVIL is a chilling story inspired by the actual accounts of New York Police Department (NYPD) Sergeant Ralph Sarchie (played by Eric Bana, Lone Survivor), who teams up with Father Mendoza (played by Edgar Ramírez, Zero Dark Thirty) to investigate a series of strange events that are taking over and terrorizing their city. Olivia Munn (Magic Mike) co-stars as Sarchie’s wife, and Joel McHale (“The Soup”) co-stars as Sarchie’s NYPD partner.
Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer (“CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”) and directed by Scott Derrickson, the DELIVER US FROM EVIL Blu-ray and DVD give fans bone-chilling bonus materials, including a director’s commentary as well as an all-new featurette, “Illuminating Evil: Making Deliver Us from Evil,” which explores how writer/director Derrickson collaborated with Sarchie on the film. The Blu-ray includes three exclusive featurettes: “Deliver Us from Demons,” which gives an all-access pass to the production team’s approach to creating a realistic and frightening demonic presence in the film; “The Two Sergeants,” which highlights the collaboration process between Ralph Sarchie and Eric Bana; and “The Demon Detective,” which offers fans an intimate interview with Sarchie as he recounts some of his more harrowing experiences in the field of demonology.
