TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Director Scott Derrickson continues to have a reliably firm grasp on creepy atmosphere, but Deliver Us from Evil's lack of original scares is reflected in its shopworn title.

Critic Reviews for Deliver Us from Evil

All Critics (132) | Top Critics (34)

The director Scott Derrickson seems uncertain as to whether he is making an exploitation pic intended to give audiences a few fairground-style thrills and frights, or a William Friedkin-style meditation on the nature of evil.

My faith, tested by use of the Doors as a Satanic conduit, vanished for ever the instant a possessed piano bashed out Pop Goes the Weasel.

With its Stygian production design and Bovril-on-the-lens aesthetic, the film works so hard to make an ordinary Bronx day feel like hell, you'll wonder what's left for the afterlife.

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

These wellworn devices might have been more effective had Derrickson managed to link them to a compelling central idea.

If you didn't know that Jerry Bruckheimer produced this movie, the boot prints on your eardrums would've clued you in.

The background music is terrible, and the story fails to hold attention.
