Deliver Us From Evil is a pretty run-of-the-mill possession horror film. But it has one thing going for it: The bromance between a lapsed-Catholic cop (Eric Bana) and an unconventional priest (Edgar Ramirez). This lets the film occasionally get into themes of masculine vulnerability, and the craving for forgiveness.
Get thee behind me, spoilers!
Deliver Us From Evil really is nothing to write home about — it's yet another demonic horror film, offering almost no surprises and a lot of dull jump-scares. Plus it's the latest in a long line of "based on a true story" movies, which only makes the whole thing more predictable. (Because the "true story" almost always ends with someone alive to tell the tale.)
