Scott Derrickson’s new film Deliver Us has been gaining buzz and industry acclaim even before it opens. The film looks to be an interesting take on the slightly tired exorcism genre. The idea of combining the gritty real life cop side of things with a more horror driven exorcism story is very interesting. And the fact that it’s based on real accounts of a police officer only prove to drive the scare factor further.
That along with the fact that it’s a film that’s staring some of the most talented actors working today sets it a cut above recent exorcism movies. Eric Bana and Edgar Ramirez both look like they’re going to deliver stelar performances. The film looks quite intriguing.
Check out this interview that Joblo did with Derrickson below. He offers some insights into why he’s such a fan of exorcism movies and what this film has as opposed to other horror pictures.
