Deliver Us from Evil (2006) is a documentary film directed by Amy J. Berg which tells the true story of Catholic priest Oliver O’Grady, who sexually abused potentially hundreds of children between the late 1970s and early 1990s. The film won the Best Documentary Award at the 2006 Los Angeles Film Festival and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. The title refers to a line in the Lord’s Prayer, or the “Our Father.”

The video gives us a sordid glimpse at the story behind the abuse, the psychology of the abuser and the abused, and the circumstances that led to and are a result of the tragic events. It also raises questions of how the Catholic Church polices its own ranks and the tremendous power and responsbility of Church leaders have on their faithful flock.
