Deliver Us From Evil – My Full Review by Lawrence of America

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.)

Synopsis – “In DELIVER US FROM EVIL, New York police officer Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana), struggling with his own personal issues, begins investigating a series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes. He joins forces with an unconventional priest (Edgar Ramirez), schooled in the rituals of exorcism, to combat the frightening and demonic possessions that are terrorizing their city. Based upon the book, which details Sarchie’s bone-chilling real-life cases.” –  Written by Sony Pictures Entertainment

Tammy – In this episode of Breaking Bad: The Fast Food Edition our heroine has just lost her McJob and is forced to hit the road after a botched robbery of her former employer (rated R comedy).

Deliver Us From Evil – A preacher and a member of the NYPD set out to arrest a demon. If your in the mood for scary this weekend here you go! Shouldn’t this be coming out in October?

Earth to Echo – If Chronicle and ET had a baby that was raised by Disney it would be this movie. The plot should be familiar to you if you have seen Flight of the Navigator or Explorers.

Opening July 11th

Dawn of The Planet of the Apes – “We apes not start sh*t; we apes finished it!” This movie is the missing link of how we lost the planet to the apes. It should be bananas!

A Long Way Down – Four strangers all get in each others way while attempting to jump off the same building and make a pact to not kill themselves for now.  This move has “date movie” written all over it and is is based off of a book by Nick Hornby. He also wrote the book High Fidelity, which the film About a Boy was based off of.
