Having withdrawals from your Halloween horror movie spree? Blue Devil Productions has you covered. The organization will be featuring “Deliver Us From Evil” for their latest movie-screening event.
The film is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer: a veteran in the Hollywood scene responsible for helming blockbusters such as “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “National Treasure” and “Black Hawk Down.”
“Deliver Us From Evil” is based on a non-fiction book by Ralph Sarchie titled “Beware the Night.”
The movie itself revolves around a protagonist of the same name but does not follow the same storyline. Instead, the film offers its own original plot based on Detective Sarchie’s encounters with the supernatural.
Major concepts in the film are secondary and primary evil. Secondary evil is committed by man while primary evil is something more sinister in nature. It is the latter which Sarchie becomes entangled with as the plot progresses.
Mendoza, a priest who specializes in exorcisms, takes Sarchie under his wing and the two work on cases together. However, this primary evil begins to affect Sarchie’s family life and his own mind. With the help of Mendoza, this detective-turned-demonologist determines to stop what’s haunting him once and for all.
Be sure to catch “Deliver Us From Evil” in Applied Arts 210 on Friday, Nov. 21. The first showing will be at 6 p.m. followed by another at 9 p.m.
