Deliver Us From Evil (2014)
The discussion of Deliver Us From Evil begins on a solid notes with Santos giving it a 3 star review but it quickly runs afoul as the rest chime in less and less favorable experiences. The film from Scott Derrickson is supposedly based on true events where a cop and a priest perform an exorcism on a possessed criminal. The film is atmospheric and looks great but the script is uneven and the acting is a mixed bag with Eric Bana’s New York accent amusing Santos and Thomas.
