Deliver Us From Evil is a wonderful balance between action and horror. While it does have some of the jump out at you and startle you moments. The movie does not rely heavily on cheap scare tactics. It slowly sets the mood while telling the story from the point of view of a non believer that slow turns in to a believer.
Not only is this movie a good scary movie it is also a good action movie. The movie follows a detective trying to find the link between a series of seemingly random acts of violence. Each time the case leads him to a more disturbing explainable event.
OVERALL – If your in the mood for a scary movie this movie is worth at least a matinee ticket. If not in the scary movie mood keep it in mind for as a must rent come Halloween. (IMHO: it should of been released in October.)
