Critics Consensus: Director Scott Derrickson continues to have a reliably firm grasp on creepy atmosphere, but Deliver Us from Evil's lack of original scares is reflected in its shopworn title.

It's time for Derrickson, who also directed The Exorcism of Emily Rose, to master a new ritual.

Demon-possession tale based on true story is pretty gory.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Deliver Us from Evil is a demon-possession horror movie that's not to be confused with the 2006 Oscar-nominated documentary of the same name. There's heavy, gory, bloody violence; disgusting corpses; struggling and fighting; guns and knives; children in peril; and scary demons. There's also a subplot about a child molester/murderer. Language is strong, including several uses of "f--k." A main character is a recovering drug addict who still drinks whisky and smokes cigarettes to get by. There are some brief, minor sexual situations. The movie is supposedly based on the true story of Bronx cop Ralph Sarchie, who published a book about his experiences, which may give older teens something to talk about.
