Consensus: Director Scott Derrickson continues to have a reliably firm grasp on creepy atmosphere, but Deliver Us from Evil's lack of original scares is reflected in its shopworn title.

Time Out

An impressively staged climactic exorcism compensates in part for the random, far-fetched storytelling that precedes it.

Director Scott Derrickson demonstrates a knack for atmosphere but little sense of pacing; some sequences are effectively spooky (particularly one set at the Bronx Zoo), though just as many feel uninspired.

It's time for Derrickson, who also directed The Exorcism of Emily Rose, to master a new ritual.

Chicago Sun-Times

Director Scott Derrickson and his co-writer, Paul Harris Boardman, deliver a routine procedural with unremarkable frights.

A surprisingly strong cast and solid direction make all the malarkey in this horror flick tolerable.

Although resorting a bit too much to cheap scares created by thunderous chords, this is a very efficient and creepy-as-hell horror movie (inspired by allegedly… More

The background music is terrible, and the story fails to hold attention.
