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.

Scary much?

The fact that it is based on a true to life story is what makes this movie scary. If you indulge your thoughts on the underlying reasons why and how the real-life story came to be, then you may get scared of the movie.

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.
