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

[last lines]
Mendoza: Ralph Sarchie, do you renounce Satan and all of his works?
Sarchie: I do renounce him. All his works, and all his ways. I renounce all evil.

Personally My Pick of The Month
7 July 2014 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

The moment I saw the names Eric Bana (Hulk 2003) and Edgar Ramirez (Wrath of The Titans), I knew that I just had to go and see this film. I've seen this film twice now and boy I enjoyed it very, very much. I've always liked movies involving evil and demonology since the plot, effects, action and suspense are always entertaining to watch

The story is like a combination of Se7en and Exorcist where cop is on a case to solve murder cases supernatural style. In a way, it was something a bit new to my eyes and I was glued to my seat within every minute of the film. The suspense, horror and jump scares were definitely there and that really made the film work. There is also a side story on the main character in the film which explains why he is the way he is and at times made me feel sorry for him

The effects within the film like the ritual ceremony scenes, blood etc in a way were pretty gory and intense to watch and will really make you feel a bit nauseate throughout the film but they were really well made

Eric Bana does a solid job as Ralph Sarchie. It's been a while since I've seen him on the big screen (last was in the Star Trek 2009 film). He puts on a very excellent performance in this film and I was and I really felt the pain that he brought to the character throughout the film. You can really tell that he's having a really hard time with his guilt, family crisis and suffering he goes through everyday as a cop in this movie. Edgar Ramirez plays Mendoza, a priest detective being sent to solve this mystery case. He also puts on a very convincing performance and shows that he's not the typical kind of priest that we hear and see everyday. He has his own demons of the past to deal with and it shows here in this film. Joel McHale as Butler, Sarchie's partner in the film plays a streetwise kind of cop and I really loved his knife fighting skills in the film. Verywell choreographed. Other than those 3 characters, the rest didn't have anything much to with the story a apart from playing as the victims and back up characters for this movie which in my opinion played out really well

Its personally my movie of the month and way better than Transformers 4. I would definitely get did movie once it's available for download. Overall, I really enjoyed this film and would place in my top 10 films of the year. However, I can't believe that this film is not making that much money that it deserves and how bad the critics are bashing it. I say for all you action horror fans out there, go and give this movie a try and judge it for yourselves. I don't think you'll be all that disappointed. I certainly enjoyed it
