Deliver Us from Evil is an okay way to get a few shivers to combat the summer heat. It's derivative and doesn't totally hang together, but it gets the job done.

While it isn't in the league of, say, Insidious or The Ring, Deliver Us From Evil packs in a mixed bag of thrills that is, at times, deeply disturbing by virtue of using the kind of horror tropes that are more psychological than gory.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

This is a smart blend of cop drama, thriller and paranormal elements.
January 7, 2016
It's a refreshingly taut and intelligently made punch in the arm for a subgenre that so desperately needed it.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 24, 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.
Full Review | Original Score: B+

Although it has all the elements it does sport too many horror tropes as though the filmmaker doesn't have the power of his own convictions to boldly go where he hasn't gone before.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 22, 2014
It's a genre rollercoaster ride - templated, repetitive and unoriginal, full of ups and downs but nonetheless effective at the one job it's trying to do - make you jump and squeal.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Delivers the genuinely disturbing, if not exactly groundbreaking, head-spinning horror goods.

Effectively scary horror flick, set present-day in New York city as a cynIcial cop (Eric Bana) investigates a series of murders that link back to a case of demonic possession involving three Iraq war veterans

July 24, 2014
An enjoyably pulpy, bloody supernatural tale, and fun in spite of its best efforts to come off as grim n' gritty.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
July 23, 2014
It's the weight that director Scott Derrickson gives to not only the horror, but the fallen souls who combat it that makes Deliver Us from Evil such an effective genre mash-up.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

This horror flick about an occult investigator is occasionally frightening but always unpleasant.

Derrickson successfully breathes life into some of the more exhausted aspects of the horror genre and produces a film that both scares and provides significant food for thought.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
July 7, 2014
Thanks to Derrickson's direction and Scott Kevan's cinematography, New York City is a winding labyrinth of filth and decay that seems to be crumbling under the oppressive weight of the evil all around.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

It might not be the scariest movie of the year but, thanks to a compelling look at evil in our world, Deliver Us From Evil is still very frightening.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
July 3, 2014
Deliver Us from Evil is dirty and grungy like Seven and eerie and nerve-racking like Sinister. At its peak, Deliver Us from Evil is a macabre, supernatural odyssey.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
