The film packs in a mixed bag of thrills that is, at times, deeply disturbing by virtue of using the kind of horror tropes that are more psychological than gory.

Story: Two police officers from the Bronx, Sarchie (Bana) along with his partner Butler (McHale), investigate the latest in a series of gruesome incidents. Despite being witness to the worst that humanity has to offer in terms of crime, they realize that this particular case has some seriously sinister undertones.

Review: It would take a lot to truly shock officer Sarchie, who has nerves of steel and would not think twice about putting his own life on the line when it comes to doing his duty as a cop. Sarchie and his equally adept partner Butler receive a call one night to investigate an incident at the Bronx Zoo.

The case seems like something not too far removed from the kind of issues they usually handle on an almost day-to-day basis, but soon, more gruesome details come to light. A woman visiting the zoo suddenly and inexplicably kills her baby. When they question her, she mouths strange curses in Latin and sounds far beyond deranged.

A rather unconventional whisky-swilling priest named Mendoza (Ramirez), who also looks like he has been to hell and back, meets Sarchie and tries to tell him the woman is demonically possessed. However, she is actually the victim of an individual who is literally a conduit to hell.

Derrickson (who has also directed The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister) throws in pretty much everything you'd expect from this genre - an elaborate exorcism, mutilated corpses, sinister signs and so on. Sarchie's wife Jen (Munn) might not have much screen time, but she portrays her role effectively.

While it isn't in the league of, say, Insidious or The Ring, Deliver Us From Evil packs in a mixed bag of thrills that is, at times, deeply disturbing by virtue of using the kind of horror tropes that are more psychological than gory.

Rather than being a gore fest throughout, the film is more about an examination of the protagonist's faith in God as well as how he deals with the guilt of past sins that he has not confessed.
