Movie Info

Exorcism is still a fact of contemporary life. Every year, more and more people claim that their illnesses are caused by demonic possession. Father Cataldo is a veteran, one of the most sought-after exorcists in Sicily. Every Tuesday, many believers follow his mass of liberation, searching for a cure for some adversity for which there does not seem to be a label or a remedy. The Catholic Church reacts to this crisis by nominating priests as exorcists in increasing numbers and by organizing training courses for them. In order to respond to the rising number of requests for deliverance from evil, all French dioceses have installed at least one exorcist. In Spain, the archdiocese of Madrid is desperately trying to fill seven additional positions. In Rome and Milan alone, the number of exorcists has grown from six to 12, and the Church has set up an emergency call center. In the US, the number of exorcists has increased tenfold over the last few years.

Critic Reviews for Deliver Us

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (1)

Di Giacomo listens patiently to people who earnestly believe that they're plagued by a supernatural evil. In a way, their calm certitude is as scary as any actual demon.

There are no set pieces here, which there could well have been. The director is not tempted to employ familiar techniques of shooting or representing this events usually confined to horror movies.

Oddly intriguing and surprisingly amusing, it's a film that illuminates a puzzling incongruity in these secular times.

A sobering, serious watch.

Di Giacomo directs a sober examination of a puzzling phenomenon.

October 29, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's almost funny, but director Federica Di Giacomo is careful that the genuine suffering of the people seeking help is never reduced to the status of freakshow entertainment.
