Deliver Us From Evil - Film Review

Cop thriller meets exorcism chiller

Deliver Us From Evil - Film Review

6 / 10 Director Scott Derrickson's (Sinister) conjures a genre-mashing supernatural cop thriller starring Eric Bana (The Incredible Hulk) as Ralph Sarchie, a special ops New York cop. Sarchie investigates a series of gory incidents involving a trio of demonically possessed war veterans lead by the deranged Santino (Southcliffe's Sean Harris). With the action shifting from the Iraq frontline to the Big Apple, the grizzled cop teams up with priest Mendoza (Edgar Ramirez, Wrath of the Titans) when evil spirits threaten his family. Combining things that go bump in the night with graphic gore, it's a brooding if not exactly riveting ride soundtracked by The Doors as the spirits try to 'Break On Through'. Inspired by the accounts of the real-life Ralph Sarchie, who became an occult investigator, the exorcism scenes are especially gruesome.
