Deliver Us from Evil Reviews

August 19, 2014
An impressively staged climactic exorcism compensates in part for the random, far-fetched storytelling that precedes it.

If you didn't know that Jerry Bruckheimer produced this movie, the boot prints on your eardrums would've clued you in.
July 7, 2014
Director Scott Derrickson and his co-writer, Paul Harris Boardman, deliver a routine procedural with unremarkable frights.

Director Scott Derrickson demonstrates a knack for atmosphere but little sense of pacing; some sequences are effectively spooky (particularly one set at the Bronx Zoo), though just as many feel uninspired.

It's time for Derrickson, who also directed The Exorcism of Emily Rose, to master a new ritual.

A surprisingly strong cast and solid direction make all the malarkey in this horror flick tolerable.

Unfortunately, the story, dialogue, and characters have some trouble carrying all that spiritual weight; ponderousness ensues.
July 3, 2014
A pretty routine and occasionally silly demonic-possession flick, which distinguishes itself by making us wait so long for the exorcism that heads may be spinning in the audience as well.

The movie is never boring. The atmosphere is decidedly unsettling and a viewer will jump a few times. Even the acting is fairly solid.

Luckily for Derrickson, this devil hates light bulbs, causing Ralph to spend countless scenes wandering around in the dark waiting to be startled by a cat.
