Just in time for Halloween, the old school horror flick ‘Deliver Us From Evil’ arrives on home video. Is it scary enough to send chills down your spine?
It’s that time of year when movie fans like to pull out a classic horror film or check out something new in the genre. Times have changed over the years when it comes to horror. Before John Carpenter’s classic Halloween hit the big screen and spawned a slew of imitators that focused more on blood and gore than pure horror, scary movies were more about the supernatural. There was a spate of Devil movies in the 70s after the success of The Exorcist, and before that it was mostly monsters and ghosts that came out to spook audiences.
Recently, horror movies have moved away from blood and gore (for better or worse, mostly because of studio imposed PG-13 ratings) for more supernatural spookiness with films like the Insidious movies, The Conjuring, Annabelle and Ouija, and the July release of the 70s throwback Deliver Us From Evil, now available on home video.
