More Info:
  • Inkoo Kang

    For all its embarrassment of riches, “Deliver” never manages to transcend its bloody, screechy, pulpy origins. That makes the film both a horror tale and a tragedy.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Gary Goldstein

    Buckle up for the ride that is Deliver Us From Evil, a highly intense and effective mash-up of police procedural and horror show.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    Scott Derrickson, the director, and his special-effects crew really deliver the creepy goods here, providing an apt climax for as taut and credible a movie involving demonic possession as you’re likely to see.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    It's a dark and grimy film, and while I think it's juggling a whole lot of cliches, there is something genuinely admirable about the way it tells this story and the way it handles the supernatural onscreen.

    HitFix Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    It's all clichéd, of course, and has been since "The Exorcist" but it's still effective, perhaps more so with anyone who, like our hero cop, comes from the world of scented smoke and altar boys.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Expertly serves shivers, buckets of gore — and pretty much every cliché of the genre.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    Though Derrickson offers some new twists on old tricks, and evokes a mood of menace with rainy streets, gloomy interiors, and the transformation of comforting everyday objects into something horrible, the story soon devolves into variations of many movies we have seen before.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Randy Cordova

    Although everything here works for the most part, there is also a definite lack of oomph as the movie pushes toward the inevitable climax.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Kate Erbland

    For all its darkness, [it] never really scares up anything new. Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    Like other entries of its pulpish ilk, the picture packs lots of violence, a fair bit of gore, and plenty of cheap scares.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Bill Stamets

    Director Scott Derrickson and his co-writer, Paul Harris Boardman, deliver a routine procedural with unremarkable frights.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • John DeFore

    While the supernatural side of the film suffers a flaw or two — continued references to The Doors are superfluous and sometimes chuckle-inducing — its central conflict works.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Half the time, Deliver Us From Evil is genuinely interested in Sarchie's all-too-human demons, and half the time we're marking time until the big exorcism and an ending that keeps the door open for a sequel, should the market demand it.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    In Bana and Ramirez, who share a palpable bro-mantic, odd-couple quality, the film finds its most charismatic element... but shoves it aside to deliver a movie that will dully meet the barest of expectations instead of trying to exceed them.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    The action scenes are clumsily filmed and choppily edited.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kim Newman

    You’ll be jolted a couple of times, but these aren’t scares that will stay with you. How about retiring “based on a true story” in favour of “based on a good story”?

    Empire Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Actually, Ramirez should probably have been cast in the lead, since things flatten out whenever he disappears.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    A professionally assembled genre mashup that’s too silly to be scary, and a bit too dull to be a midnight-movie guilty pleasure.

    Variety Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Derrickson gives it everything he’s got, but when a film offers “Break On Through (To The Other Side)” as a spiritual pathway, it’s hard to take seriously.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Deliver Us from Evil takes a very long time to deliver us from dullness.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Scott Bowles

    Even horror neophytes won't be spooked by a film that looks as if it were shot with a smartphone and an Itty Bitty Booklight.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    A jump scare isn't just a jump scare in the films of Scott Derrickson, which isn't to say this wannabe master of horror has entirely perfected the art of sudden dread.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The question at the heart of Deliver Us From Evil, a garden-variety serial-killer thriller tarted up as an exorcism drama, is not whether good will triumph over evil. Rather, it’s this: What in God’s name possesses good actors to make dreck like this?

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Kyle Anderson

    This rote exorcism-is-real claptrap.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Bana is a likable actor, but he doesn’t bring any vulnerability or transparency to the part; it’s hard to tell what he’s thinking, if he’s thinking anything at all. And so, we move from one bleak, bludgeoning setpiece to another. But with each loud noise, the film loses us more and more.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Despite the screaming gore, the movie is so rote that it can’t even rouse us for the de rigueur exorcism.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    At best, it will be remembered as "that exorcism movie with Eric Bana." More likely, "that exorcism movie where everyone has a bad New York accent."

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Simon Abrams

    Little more than an ugly collection of tropes stolen from "The Exorcist" and "Seven." Full Review
  • Geoff Pevere

    If this movie doesn’t leave you howling at the very idea of demonic possession, you’re in dire need of an exorcist.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Steve Davis

    The mutilated, slobbering, howling possessed in Deliver Us From Evil crawl on all fours like animals, and furiously dig into surfaces until their fingers bleed, but they’re nothing more than a sideshow, freaks on display for your perverse enjoyment. It’s unsettling, but never terrifying.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    This is television-level moviemaking top to bottom, from its preposterous premise, scenery-chomping performances, idiotic sound cues and force-fed jump-scares. Deliver Us From Evil delivers formula, and in a formulaic fashion.
