SYNOPSIS OF DELIVER US FROM EVIL:
This film is based on true story.

MY REVIEW OF DELIVER US FROM EVIL:
I will have to say I completely enjoyed this film greatly. From the very start of the first act I was unable to take my eyes away from the screen.
Eric Bana as Ralph Sarchie trying to cope with what is going on was absolutely believable, and the stresses he had to overcome to save his family from the demonic force.
Because of the running time of the movie it was easy not to lose any interest.
So on a scale of 1 to 5; I would give it at least a three.
I believe that this film definitely deserves a look by any fan of POSSESSION type of movies like (THE EXORCIST).
