Thoughts: I can’t help it. I eat these based on a true-story-demonic-horror-films up with glee. I appreciate that it appears we’ve moved past the B-movie trash filmmaking these slick horror films have employed for years and into a more sophisticated take on the scare. Scott Derrickson earned high praise from me for directing two of the more superior horror films in the last decade, Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose, so I’m inclined to have faith that Deliver Us From Evil will follow suit. This first teaser trailer may be longer than I’d have liked but it has a nice little payoff.
