hey this is the unofficial Horror movie reviewer for ATS. So Deliver us From Evil was hyped to be the best Horror movie of the year. with good
actors in it. (Olivia Munn, Joel McHale). So did it live up to the hype? Was it a good Scary movie? No and Yes No it did not live up to the hype
but it was a good scary movie.
I found out a week before the movie dropped that this was based on an actual true story from an NYPD detective. So given that it is hard to find fault
with the story of the movie. and it is strung together in an okay fashion. the actors are good. With funny man Joel McHale(the soup, Community)
being the big surprise for me. He was funny but not a sideshow taking away from the vibe and tenor of the movie. and the unorthodoxed priest was an
interesting person as well. The movie had good scares and had a moderate creepiness to it.
A knock against it I would say was you were unsure of what exactly you were supposed to be afraid of as it turned into more a mystery then a
scary/Horror movie. But that is only for me speaking a lot of people love mystery. this was not on the level of the conjuring, insidious or
Sinister. Those are the best of our current times. And again this is still a good scary movie. its just not on an elite level.
Most of the scares are what you have seen in the previews if you have seen the previews.
