Beware The Night is an upcoming film from Sinister director, Scott Derrickson. The film is an adaption of Ralph Sarchie and Lisa Collier Cool’s true paranormal thriller of the same name about Sarchie’s unique side job. When he’s not at the 46th Precinct in the south Bronx, Sarchie investigates demonic possessions. In the film, Eric Bana portrays the cop character and is recruited by a renegade priest (Edgar Ramirez) to help him battle malicious paranormal forces.
Bana recently spoke about the film during an interview for his next release, Closed Circuit. In the interview he mentions how thrilling the film will be and how much faith he has in Derrickson as the director.
“I think it hopefully will be one of the most unique in that genre. I think we’ve just finished making something that is unlike anything I’ve seen before. It’s very complex and I think it’s gonna be very scary, and it was an amazing character. You know, I think Scott’s handle on the genre, I mean, I think he’s an amazing filmmaker and I feel very confident we’ve got something interesting in the can.”
When it comes to the type of scary movie this will be, Bana said it is composed of both disturbing scares that will linger with you through the night as well as the typical jump scares.
Producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, also spoke about Beware the Night saying,
“Beware the Night is a project we’ve been developing for many years, confident that a story which combines the paranormal with a gritty New York City police story is both original and strongly appealing to audiences.”
Beware the Night also stars Olivia Munn and Joel McHale, and will arrive in theaters on January 16, 2015.
