Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Deliver Us from Evil is a demon-possession horror movie that's not to be confused with the 2006 Oscar-nominated documentary of the same name. There's heavy, gory, bloody violence; disgusting corpses; struggling and fighting; guns and knives; children in peril; and scary demons. There's also a subplot about a child molester/murderer. Language is strong, including several uses of "f--k." A main character is a recovering drug addict who still drinks whisky and smokes cigarettes to get by. There are some brief, minor sexual situations. The movie is supposedly based on the true story of Bronx cop Ralph Sarchie, who published a book about his experiences, which may give older teens something to talk about.

Sexual Content

A woman tries to pick up a man in a bar ("you look good sweaty"). A husband and wife kiss in bed, and the woman's nipple is somewhat visible through her sleepwear. A character mentions his "favorite porn site."


A woman has a bruised and bloodied face, suggesting that her husband has beaten her. Her young daughter also has a trickle of blood from her nose. The bluish body of a dead baby is shown, wrapped in cloth. A man punches bad guys in the face again and again. Several scenes of struggling and fighting, sometimes with knives. Lots of gory wounds, with gurgling and spurting blood; crazy, scary, demon-possessed people; and gross dead bodies. A crucified cat is shown. A woman tosses a baby into a ravine at the zoo. A little girl is shown to be terrified and possibly in danger. A subplot is about a child molester. Some brief Iraq war footage, with shooting and explosions. The cops draw their guns from time to time.


"F--k" is used several times. "S--t" is also heard, as are "balls," "ass," "hell," "Christ," "goddamn," and "Jesus" (as an exclamation). A middle finger gesture is shown.

Social Behavior

A character struggles with inner demons -- and outer demons -- and learns that he doesn't want to live in a world of violence anymore. In the end, he decides to work in a more spiritual realm and spend more time with his family.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A priest is shown drinking whisky and smoking cigarettes on more than one occasion. He admits to a past as a drug addict (he mentions a "speedball needle stuck in my arm"), and though he's clean now, he says that the alcohol and cigarettes help get him through.
