Deliver Us from Evil (2014)



Critic Consensus: Director Scott Derrickson continues to have a reliably firm grasp on creepy atmosphere, but Deliver Us from Evil's lack of original scares is reflected in its shopworn title.

If you didn't know that Jerry Bruckheimer produced this movie, the boot prints on your eardrums would've clued you in.

Top Critic

Director Scott Derrickson and his co-writer, Paul Harris Boardman, deliver a routine procedural with unremarkable frights.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

Director Scott Derrickson demonstrates a knack for atmosphere but little sense of pacing; some sequences are effectively spooky (particularly one set at the Bronx Zoo), though just as many feel uninspired.

It's time for Derrickson, who also directed The Exorcism of Emily Rose, to master a new ritual.

A surprisingly strong cast and solid direction make all the malarkey in this horror flick tolerable.

The background music is terrible, and the story fails to hold attention.
