The story of Ralph Sarchie comes to life in Deliver Us From Evil, out July 2. It stars Eric Bana as Sarchie, a man who was an NYPD cop for 18 years. He saw things that are otherworldly and supernatural.
In the film, Bana talks about battling secondary evil versus primary evil.
Screen Gems has released a featurette that introduces us to the real Ralph Sarchie, and one of the first things he does is explain the difference between secondary evil and primary evil. “The primary evil isn’t trying to steal your property,” Sarchie said. “It’s trying to steal your very essence, your soul.”
Sarchie was a cop in the 46th precinct in the Bronx, one of the toughest neighborhoods in all of New York and, for that matter, America.
He retired and now works solely as a demonologist with several priests. In the movie, they boiled those religious officials into one, played by Edgar Ramirez. Bana and Ramirez must get to the bottom of a series of unexplained crimes that are gripping the city.
Stay with Movie Fanatic as we delve deeper into this incredible true story with exclusive video interviews with the entire cast, as well as one incredibly informative interview with Sarchie himself.
