eye Weekly
Adam Nayman quote iconDeliver Us From Evil is not the first film to probe the institutionalized hypocrisy and destructive sexual pathology that exist within the Catholic Church, but its laser-like focus and lack of hysteria make it so much more damning than an easy, knee-jerk screed.
James Berardinelli quote iconIf you want real horror - the kind that will turn your stomach and curdle your insides - you need look no further than the documentary realm and Deliver Us from Evil. After watching this film, you will believe that evil exists on earth. That the movie deals in truth and established facts makes it all the more disturbing.
