Scott Derrickson's Sinister was an admirably nasty little horror that managed to stay unnerving despite its familiar framework. His follow up Deliver Us From Evil mostly pulls off the same trick, staying entertaining for its first hour with a bombardment of demonic clichés including bats, ancient ciphers, kiddies in peril, ritualistic murder, and increasingly pasty possession victims.

Too silly to be scary, and a bit too dull to be a midnight-movie guilty pleasure.

[Director Derrickson] really deliver the creepy goods here, providing an apt climax for as taut and credible a movie involving demonic possession as you're likely to see.

Preposterous film plagued by idiotic sound cues, a senseless plot and force-fed jump-scares

Any serious consideration of its themes are overwhelmed by the aggressive deployment of horror clichés.

While the supernatural side of the film suffers a flaw or two, its central conflict works.
