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

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 »

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.
