‘Deliver Us From Evil': Eric Bana Stars As Cop Investigating Demonic Exorcism
Eric Bana returns to the big screen for a big scream — or is it? Deliver Us From Evil, which hit theaters on July 2, has received mixed reviews from critics and fans, but the star of the film admits that he was freaked out on set.
“I’m quite skeptical but I definitely have my mind opened a little bit by hanging out with Ralph and Scott [director] and learning more about the kind of cultural, religious aspects of the subject matter,” Eric told HollywoodLife.com. “The exorcism sequence at the end of movie which was just a week of insanity, but crazy and fun at the same time.” He also added that after long days of shooting, he headed straight to the bar.
We don’t blame him — dealing with demonic actors everyday? We get it.
So are fans freaking out over the movie or are they in need of a drink, too?
