In DELIVER US FROM EVIL, New York police officer Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana), struggling with his own personal issues, begins investigating a series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes. He joins forces with an unconventional priest (Edgar Ramírez), schooled in the rituals of exorcism, to combat the frightening and demonic possessions that are terrorizing their city. Inspired by the book, which details Sarchie's bone-chilling real-life cases.
The Exorcism of Emily Rose was a staple of my growing up. I rewatched for the first time since I was a child tonight. It's a film that's hard to even classify as horror. Horror of the mind, horror of spirituality, maybe...such a misunderstood film. Goddamn. I've never seen his remake The Day The Earth Stood Still, but it seems like material he could do justice despite the unanimous reception.
I've got to watch Emily Rose still, but this and Sinister are both stellar. The last half hour of this film is absolute insanity. The entire exorcism is one of my favorite scenes I've seen in any film this year.
loved sinister, hated this. It didn't bring anything new to the genre and for most of the movie I felt quite bored, mostly because of our very cliché characters and typical scares (this was mostly a gritty cop movie than a horror)
