Deliver Us From Evil | R

And, you thought New York City was safe from spooks, ghosts, goblins and giant marshmallow men ever since Ghostbusters II. Wrong! Deliver Us From Evil is inspired by a New York Police Department detective and his partner who have investigated some of the city’s strangest cases. In the film Sgt. Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana) and his partner (Joel McHale) investigate a series of events that are terrorizing the city. They get an assist from a priest (Edgar Ramirez) who knows a little bit about evil. Olivia Munn plays Sarchie’s wife. Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and written and directed by Scott Derrickson. The DVD/Blu-ray includes plenty of bonus goodies: interviews with the real-life cops on which the film is based, a “making of” piece and behind-the-scenes material. $14.99 (See this complete guide to horror flicks set in New York City.)
