Deliver Us from Evil (2014, USA)

Deliver Us from Evil (2014, USA)The face of law enforcement in writer-director Scott Derrickson’s latest horror is a horribly self-righteous tough guy who finds religion and lays down his own kind of violent justice. Derrickson’s fourth feature is loosely based on the memoir of ex NYPD cop turned demonologist Ralph Sarchie, who acts as the hero of this piece….The strong religious overtones are to be expected, but the way religion is depicted purely as a force for good comes across as distractingly preachy; it’s a message delivered with all the nuance and balance of Fox News.
