DE­LIVER US FROM EVIL ★ Di­rected by Scott Der­rick­son. Star­ring Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - CINEMA -

Largely use­less hor­ror romp con­cern­ing a cop hunt­ing down demons in New York City. Much of the film fits to stan­dard hokum tem­plates. False scares pile up and even­tu­ally lead to at­tempts at the real thing. It ends up with a reaf­fir­ma­tion of faith cornier than those in any happy-clappy Christian pro­pa­ganda. The one dis­tin­guish­ing fea­ture is an at­tempt to in­cor­po­rate The Doors’ lyrics into the hor­ror. This is beyond mis­guided. 16 cert, 118 min
