Deliver Us from Evil Reviews
There are some interesting themes at play, but sadly they aren't explored with much inventiveness.
Deliver Us From Evil, after a taut, thrill-filled start, goes slack, gory and repetitive till finally ending in an over-the-top, extended exorcism that leaves us none the wiser on what the fuss was all about.
The only fun bits in the film are when it tricks you that there is something sinister at the end of a dark scene, but sadly it’s just a series of false promises all the way.
Senseless story, uninspired acting and lack of any scares whatsoever make this film another entry in the long list of failed horror movies.
The story is good, the horror element is ever-present, and no matter who you are, it WILL make you jump in your seat every now and then. It doesn’t matter if you are a fan of modern-day blood and gore, or classic exorcism flicks, this movie has something for everyone.
The Exorcist for the post-millennial age. Cliched but spooky nonetheless.
