TORONTO -- Evokative Films has picked up the Canadian rights to Danish director Ole Bornedal's social thriller "Deliver Us From Evil" ahead of its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Wednesday.

The deal with Bavaria Film International gives the Montreal-based distributor all rights to Thura Film project that transfers Sam Peckinpah's "Straw Dogs" to rural Denmark.

The acquisition, negotiated between Evokative Films' Stephanie Trepanier and Stefanie Zeitler for Bavaria Film, is the first Scandinavian film pickup by the Canadian distributor.

Evokative until now has mostly focused on Asian titles like Japanese director Satoshi Miki's "Adrift in Tokyo," and Korean director Jang Hoon's "Rough Cut."

The Toronto International Film Festival ends Saturday.
