Deliver Us From Evil

Deliver Us From Evil is a decently crafted crime thriller with a supernatural twist, based in the Bronx, New York. Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana) is a police officer with an inherent tendency to uncover the city’s sudden series of occult happenings. Somewhat unoriginal in story and dialogue, yet contrastingly genuine in performance and fright, the film does entertain.

Edgar Ramírez nearly steals the light as an unconventional priest, focused on the rituals of exorcism. The two coincide with some blood-curdling scenes that demand attention and reprimand lack of faith.

Although at first seeming gratuitously scary, the story will grip the audience with its acute final moments; which manage to hold their own in this stock-standard genre. (RBM)
