Reviews:

” …for viewers who can appreciate a quality human story that explores the evils of everyday life (both personal and supernatural), Derrickson delivers a gripping experience – one that balances crime thriller suspense with absorbing supernatural mythology. It might not be the scariest movie of the year but, thanks to a compelling look at evil in our world, Deliver Us From Evil is still very frightening.” Ben Kendrick, Screen Rant

“Despite its silliness, its mostly contained locations kept it scary. Deliver Us From Evil will get audiences yelping here and there because there are parts when dogs jump out and bark when you don’t think there’s a dog there to jump out and bark. You could also save yourself the ticket price and go to a pet store.” Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian

“What Deliver Us From Evil does have going for it is a sophisticated, gorgeous vision of a world draped in darkness and depravity. Cinematographer Scott Kevan and production designer Bob Shaw imaginatively turn routine horror movie locations — psychiatric wards, old basements — into evocative cathedrals of shadows. Derrickson has always been better at creating mood than in terrifying audiences, and Deliver Us From Evil has plenty of niggling unease.” Tim Grierson, The Verge

“This is a smart blend of cop drama, thriller and paranormal elements. It’s a compelling and surprising mix that raises this genre movie into the realms of an imperfect but solid thriller. Fact or fiction. It’s scary and grisly in all the right places.” Dwight Brown, The Charlotte Post

” …a professionally assembled genre mashup that’s too silly to be scary, and a bit too dull to be a midnight-movie guilty pleasure.” Andrew Barker, Variety

“Technically, Derrickson’s made a fine-looking film that evokes the sort of gritty imagery of Lumet-era New York cop films mashed up with the more uneasy, creepy approach he’s known for with films such as Sinister. If only Deliver Us From Evil’s story had balanced the cop and horror movie elements as deftly as the director’s visual style.” Jim Vejvoda, IGN
