?This summer sees the release of Deliver Us from Evil, a film directed by Scott Derrickson that was inspired by the life and career of NYPD's Sergeant Ralph Sarchie.
In anticipation of the film's release, a 15-20 minute "documentary thriller" was commissioned to "demonstrate the reality behind the picture" and shed some light on the real life Sarchie. Today, a 90-second teaser was released via the doc's YouTube channel where I'm presuming it will play out. The exorcism footage teased in this promo is pretty nuts. Here's a description of the doc…
Cameras will follow Sarchie to investigate the site of a purported paranormal infestation, interview NYPD cops who served with Sarchie, talk to an ex-prison warden who currently works as Sarchie’s partner, and reveal Sarchie’s private life through interviews with his mother, sister, and daughter. For the first time, Ralph Sarchie will open his case files and share recordings from his exorcisms. The footage is disturbing because it's real; the implications are terrifying because they are rooted in truth. Over the course of his 16 years as a NYPD cop, Sarchie came to be known as a man of trust and authority.
It’s because of this rock-solid reputation that his supernatural experiences will cut so close to the bone with audiences. If you want a sneak peak at the docu-thriller before its release on June 2nd, this :90 teaser will more than whet your appetite – it will spark a need to find out more, to see for yourself what dark secrets are hiding just around the corner.
Check out the teaser below and look for Deliver Us from Evil on July 2nd!
