Synopsis

From the director of horror film classic ‘Nightwatch’, DELIVER US FROM EVIL is a chilling portrait of a family torn apart by violence and envy.

In search of a new lifestyle, Johannes and his wife leave the city and move with their two children to his childhood town in the countryside. Violence erupts when truck driver Lars, Johannes's wayward brother, runs over a local woman and pins the blame on the town’s Bosnian refugee. When Johannes stands up for the man and gives him shelter, Lars and his friends head for Johannes's secluded house, armed with a shotgun and boundless rage...

Compared by critics to cult classic ‘Straw Dogs’, and reminiscent of Michael Haneke’s work, DELIVER US FROM EVIL is an unforgettable journey into the darkness of the human psyche.
