Trivia

Despite the claims made throughout the marketing and in the film itself, this is not based on "actual accounts". While there really is a Ralph Sarchie who really was an NYPD officer who claims to have encountered paranormal phenomena in his work and who co-wrote an allegedly non-fiction book that "Deliver Us from Evil" purports to adapt, the film does not actually adapt any of the cases found in said book and instead features a wholly original plot imagined by director Scott Derrickson and his co-writer Paul Harris Boardman.

Goofs

The typefaces in CCTV shots are the same throughout the movie. Although possible, that's extremely unlikely to happen, as are shown recordings from the military, from the zoo and from NYPD. See more »

Quotes

Sarchie: You see, Father, as we speak every day, out there, someone's getting hurt, ripped off, murdered, raped. Where's God when all that's happening? Hmm?
Mendoza: In the hearts of people like you, who put a stop to it. I mean, we can talk all night about the problem of evil, but what about the problem of good? I mean, if there's no God, if the world is just "survival of the fittest," then why are all the men in this room willing to lay down their lives for total strangers? Hmm?

One of the best exorcism type movies I've watched in a while.
3 July 2014 | by (Lawrence, KS) – See all my reviews

This is by far one of the best exorcism type movies I've watched in a very long time. The whole tune of the movie as it progresses is cryptic, and keeps you longing for more. Always trying to figure it out on your own as the movie plays on. Most exorcism type movies drag on with the plot and lose me halfway in, but this one however kept me entertained throughout the entire time. Eric Bana's acting is top quality, and quite frankly the best acting I've saw of him since "Troy". It's def. something to look into, if your looking for a good movie to watch. Be it Drama/Horror/Mystery, this movie is for you. You cannot do split rankings on here, but I give it a good 8.5/10 score.
