Trivia

The role of Butler was always written with Joel McHale in mind, however, Butler was "the worst character in the script", according to the director and writer. After struggling to improve the role, he then imagined what he thought McHale would be like if he had gone to the Army instead of college, and worked in law enforcement instead of entertainment. After that, writing became easier and the character grew. See more »

Goofs

The priest, when telling Ralph about his affair and subsequent abortion, says that he should have been "defrocked." He says that his confessor also warned him that should he behave similarly again, he would be "defrocked." The word "defrocked" is a uniquely protestant term and a Catholic priest would not use that word. See more »

The Right Kind of Exorcism
12 July 2014 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

It's been a while since I found a decent exorcism movie. I mean, some of the exorcism-theme movies I've watched is pretty decent if not too ordinary. Too similar with the process and the pace. So, when I see that Deliver Us From Evil has arrived, I too didn't really put up too much hope. I thought this is just another typical exorcism movie.

You see, most of the exorcism will always start with the same process. Some devil possessing a child (or someone), (usually) the parents got distracted over the fact and try to find a way to rid the devil. A priest got the information and try to help exorcise the demon. The priest done it successfully (or so he thought) only to find that the demon hasn't really left the child. The priest then try to find a much more experienced priest to help him and finally able to rid the devil for good, but with the cost of someone's life. That's pretty much how all exorcism related movie goes.

But not with this one. I'm actually pretty hyped up after watching it!!! The acting is great, the pace is good and basically got a different presentation to make this into a not boring "typical-exorcism" movie. It actually makes you yearn for more information, dragging your heighten-interest along the way and keeps up the momentum to finally gave you a shocking horror, straight to your face.

I dare gave it 8/10 for Deliver Us From Evil.
