Deliver Us from Evil (2014) - Rotten Tomatoes

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.

Movie Info

In DELIVER US FROM EVIL, New York police officer Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana), struggling with his own personal issues, begins investigating a series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes. He joins forces with an unconventional priest (Edgar Ramirez), schooled in the rituals of exorcism, to combat the frightening and demonic possessions that are terrorizing their city. Based upon the book, which details Sarchie's bone-chilling real-life cases. (c) Screen Gemsmore

Critic Reviews for Deliver Us from Evil

All Critics (118) | Top Critics (28)

An impressively staged climactic exorcism compensates in part for the random, far-fetched storytelling that precedes it.

Time Out
Top Critic

What begins promisingly enough ends up a gratuitously violent, underwritten, depressing scrap heap of a movie that aims for two audiences and misses both.

Full Review… | April 9, 2016

When a plot gets so ludicrous, even the suggestion that it could happen to you won't make the film any scarier.

Critic's Notebook

Ultimately, Deliver Us from Evil is a very messy affair.

Full Review… | January 5, 2015

Scott Derrickson's "Deliver Us from Evil" suffers from an immense lack of originality, a bloated runtime of two hours, and pacing that makes a snail look fast.

Full Review… | October 27, 2014

A police procedural cake pan [filled] with horror-genre cake batter. It [delivers] troubling questions about evils committed by humankind and ... evils done by something else.

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