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.

Early in the film, Sarchie's arm is slashed by Jimmy in an encounter, suffering a deep gash that it is stated will require stitches. In the very next scene at the Bronx Zoo, the wound is not visible. Immediately following, we see him at home and the arm is bandaged. See more »
If you enjoyed Sinister, you will enjoy this creepy joy ride
I really enjoyed Scott Derrickson's 'Sinister' and he followed it up with a very good horror flick here.
It keeps you interested and on the edge of your seat the whole time. Not to many slow parts and there are some pretty creepy and terrifying moments. The tone and the dark hallways and dark basements and the creepy noises and the sudden jumps and scares will make you jump a few times yourself. I looked away a few times just because, you'll see.
A pretty decent story involving soldiers in Iraq and what happens to them there and then what proceeds and how Eric Bana's character gets involved while responding to a domestic disturbance call involving one of those soldiers, and it takes off from there.
Eric Bana is pretty bad-ass here, as is Joel McHale. They are tough cops from the Bronx who see some pretty insane stuff over the course of a few shifts. Olivia Munn is a babe and plays a great wife who cares and does great with little screen time.
It's a supernatural/demon/serial killer flick all rolled into one.
If you enjoy horror flicks like I do, and the supernatural and demon stuff, def check this out. Not much gore, just very dark and creepy with it's share of make you jump moments.
Not many flaws if any. Check it out!
