What to know

critics consensus

Deliver Us From Evil is a superb documentary and a searing look at an institution protecting its leaders at the expense of its followers. A profoundly disturbing chronicle of a wolf in sheep's clothing, the film builds a clear-eyed case against pedophile priest Oliver O'Grady, and the Catholic bureaucracy that protected him. The recollections of O'Grady's victims are nothing short of shocking and heartbreaking. Read critic reviews

Berg tracks down O'Grady in Ireland, where he lives free under church protection, and allows him to give his own account of his crimes.

    Deliver Us From Evil is a necessary documentary that needed to be made. The film takes a look at Father O'Grady, a priest who during the 1970's and early 1980's raped dozens of children. He was moved to different parishes in an attempt by the church to conceal his crimes. O'Grady is a dangerous man, one that is the lowest form of filth on this earth. Director Amy Berg crafts a solid, gripping and provoking documentary. This is a hard film to watch and Amy Berg does a great job at uncovering this dark subject and it's a film that should be seen because of the fact priests are supposed to be trusted, and many do trusts them, and O'Grady has used his powers as a priest to get involved with his victims. This is hard to watch and there's plenty of graphic discussion about the crimes themselves, and it's not a film for everyone due to its subject. The film is heart wrenching as we see families get their lives ruined by someone they trusted. Deliver Us From Evil is a well made documentary and it is eye opening, with interviews and firsthand accounts about the crimes. In terms of a documentary, this is a must see film. Amy Berg has crafted a fine film that exposes the lengths of the church to hide the truth. With that said, while viewing this film, I can see why many people don't trust priests. The church is not what it all seems, and Amy Berg makes a good point with this well made documentary that you won't soon forget. Hard, but necessary viewing.

    The greater documentary ever made and I'll try to leave personal views out of this but it'll be hard to with the strong opinions I have on the catholic churches handling of child molestors. The statistics in this film were shocking. For example one of ten priests graduate from St Paul are registered pedophiles. The stories are chilling. A priest inserting his gentile inside 9 month old infants vagina among dozens of others and bishops knowingly sending him to different parishes with children a shocking four times. The way Amy Berg flows through this movie leaving nothing out will hurl your stomach inside out. And at the end you still feel like justice wasn't served. This movie has solidified my idea that the high anarchy of the catholic church are just corrupt executives who will do anything to make there business look good.

    If whatever is shown in this film is true, it's weird to know that churches are better off serving the devils than helping the victims. 'Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind' would have been appropriate for this flick.

    Its difficult to determine who is the worse monster, Oliver O'Grady who sexually assulted hundreds of children (some even infants) or the leadership of the Catholic Church who went at great lengths to cover up the crimes of him and countless others in the priesthood. Either way, this documentary highlights one of the major reasons I don't go to church anymore.
