DON’T DELIVER US FROM EVIL (1971) ** ½

Two seemingly innocent Catholic schoolgirls drink and smoke and slowly descend into more devious behavior like killing (real) birds and setting fires. They hold a black mass where they pledge themselves to Satan. “Welcome us into your satanic bosom!” When the pair accidentally kills a man, they know they can’t get away with it. During their school play they perform a pretentious skit (“Dig a ditch! Dig it deep!”), which ends with them dousing themselves with gasoline and torching themselves. This subdued horror import from France is all tease and no please. While the performances are good, and the set up intriguing, nothing all that shocking or scary happens. Satanic Catholic schoolgirls will eat it up though.
