Deliver Us from Evil (2014)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

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.

Critic Reviews for Deliver Us from Evil

All Critics (115) | Top Critics (27)

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

Time Out
Top Critic

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.

Examiner.com

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.

Looking Closer

'Sinister' director Scott Derrickson again delivers the (modest) goods in this old-school street-cop mystery-thriller in 'Exorcist' drag.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

here evil comes from the Middle East, but is ultimately dispelled by American goodness, in a mapping of post-millennial geopolitics onto a simplistic Manichaean worldview.

It's scary, but it's also entertainment. It's scarentertainment. (That's awful. Forget I wrote that).

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