Deliver Us from Evil

New York police officer Ralph Sarchie investigates a series of crimes. He joins forces with an unconventional priest, schooled in the rites of exorcism, to combat the possessions that are terrorising their city.

 

Deliver Us from Evil is a new horror movie written and directed by Scott Derrickson, it stars Eric Bana, Joe McHale and Edgar Ramirez. I've always quite liked horror movies and possessions stories, as a result I was quite excited for a new horror movie to come out. I liked the director's touch on creepiness, the atmosphere, the editing work, his whole cinematography and the music as well was really good. This film is all a bit cliché though; like we've seen it all before in previous hunting, horror, and exorcism stories. There are a lot of irrelevant and useless jump scares, that did not ad a lot of scariness to the film. They bring those cop investigation elements to it which is a pretty good idea I think. I know it may seems a little contradictory however, Deliver Us from Evil is kind of original at times: as we're waiting for creepy sounds and doors openings to happen but nothing of that happened. Every scenes fell in place.


Overall obviously we've seen it all before and sometimes we've seen it done better than this but we've seen horror movies a lot worst than this one. Deliver Us from Evil could go both ways; as a cliché paranormal movie with a shitty cop twist to it OR as a quite good cop movie with a paranormal twist to it.
