Horror enthusiasts will be able to get their fix with the help of Deliver Us From Evil, an atmospheric new horror flick starring Eric Bana and director Scott Derrickson (Sinister). Will this fright flick turn into a sleeper or will it be overshadowed by Transformers: Age of Extinction

Deliver Us From Evil
(Sony/Screen Gems)

PROS:

- It's very reassuring that Derrickson is at the helm. The director's Sinister turned into a solid $48.1 million surprise hit in 2012.
- Horror fans will likely come out in droves to support this. 
- The first trailer does what any good horror trailer should: it teases.

CONS:

- Eric Bana has had his share of duds. See Lucky You and Closed Circuit.
- The Purge: Anarchy comes two weeks later and it could end up overshadowing Deliver Us From Evil.
