WonderCon attendees were the first to get a five-minute preview of Deliver Us from Evil, the film Sony is hoping taps into a little bit of that Conjuring-like summer success when it opens in theaters on July 2nd. The preview mixed previously-seen trailer footage with new clips as well as talking head-style interviews with Ralph Sarchie, the police officer whose experiences and book served as inspiration for the film. The promo was intriguing and, at times, chilling. There were definitely a few "what the f**k?" moments, but more importantly, it demonstrated that director Scott Derrickson wasn't retreading supernatural territory he mined in The Exorcism of Emily Rose or Sinister.

Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez, Olivia Munn, Sean Harris and Joel McHale star in the supernatural thriller, which follows New York police officer Sarchie (Bana), who is struggling with his own personal issues. As he begins investigating a series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes, he joins forces with an unconventional priest (Ramirez), schooled in the rituals of exorcism, to combat the frightening and demonic possessions that are terrorizing their city.

Derrickson spoke with ShockTillYouDrop.com about some of what we had seen in the promo and this film's origins following the WonderCon presentation. You can check out the interview here.
