Watch or Don’t: Deliver Us From Evil

Carousel - Image1

Deliver Us From Evil follows an NYPD sergeant investigating a string of absurd crimes that he eventually suspects are supernatural in nature.

Entertainment Value

  • Joel McHale plays the sergeant’s sidekick in a role that was written with him in mind. Most excellent!
  • Merging the fear of being a cop at night in the Bronx with the fear of supernatural evil emphasizes how trapped anyone who wants to be a force for good can feel in a broken world.

Dark Muse Value

  • Is it enough to fight for good when evil cannot be fully vanquished?
  • How much evil in the world is secondary (human choices) and how much is primary (beyond human)?

Verdict: WATCH
