DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Crime Horror Thriller - While the advertising plays up a horror angle, this is mostly police procedural thriller with supernatural elements until a huge exorcism finale. Fans of Eric Bana will enjoy this big showcase, and Joel McHale fans will enjoy this gritty change of pace role for him. Edgar Ramirez's role is fairly small until around the halfway mark. Language, violence, and one big exorcism scene make the film far too intense for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Poor 'Deliver Us From Evil' is scary, but only because it can't even make a possessed stuffed animal creepy.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average 'Deliver Us' delivers plenty of groans, not chills.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Very Poor So Deliver devolves into a predictable, overlong waiting game.

NY Post Full Review
Above Average (Very) loosely inspired by the memoir of an NYPD detective who worked with exorcists, "Deliver Us From Evil'' expertly serves shivers, buckets of gore — and pretty much every cliché of the genre.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Sergeant Ralph Sarchie (ERIC BANA) of the NYPD has seen his share of darkness on the mean streets of the South Bronx. Assigned to the 46th Precinct in one of the toughest neighborhoods of the country, Sarchie has witnessed behavior on the outer edges of inhumanity, and it has begun to darken his soul, to the point of affecting his relationship with his wife, Jen (OLIVIA MUNN), and their young daughter, Christina (LULU WILSON).

But when the increasingly troubled Sarchie and his police partner Butler (JOEL McHALE), a sardonic ex-Army Ranger always ready for a fight, are summoned to investigate a bizarre incident, the events which follow will test the pragmatic Sarchie's beliefs and understanding. He finds himself in a tenuous alliance with Joe Mendoza (EDGAR RAMIREZ), a renegade priest whose own faith has been tested more than once, and who tries to convince a skeptical Sarchie that the increasingly horrifying occurrences are nothing less than an encounter with several cases of demonic possession.

Together, the policeman and the priest uncover layer after layer of evidence that what Mendoza describes as primary evil has taken root, and Sarchie is forced to question his entire belief system as they attempt to do battle with the malignant forces threatening the city, and even those he loves the most...his family.
