According to an ancient prophecy, a woman will give birth to identical twin boys; one the Messiah, the other the Antichrist. After a Russian nun claims to have immaculately conceived twins, the Vatican sends a priest to investigate. There he discovers a secret society, Vox Dei, that plans to kill the Nun and her children.
Directors Lee Roy Kunz and Cru Ennis explains the idea behind the film:
‘Deliver Us’ is a theological horror film that explores religious prophecies from various cultures throughout history. A universal thread in world religions is the story of feuding brothers: Cain and Abel, Thor and Loki, Set and Osiris, Zeus and Hades, and in our case Jesus and Lucifer. We center our story around identical twin brothers to tap into this cultural consciousness and to explore “the problem of evil”–the question of why a good and all-powerful God would permit the flourishing of evil. By presenting this existential dilemma within the horror genre, we aim to engage viewers on multiple levels to not just frighten but provide a thought-provoking experience.
Magnet Releasing will release ‘Deliver Us’ in theaters and on VOD today, September 29th, 2023.
