Two young convent girls become friends and decide to spend the summer together. However, their innocent bicycle rides and walks in the country soon develop a much more sinister side. Influenced by their reading of forbidden books, they decide to explore the world of perversion and cruelty. They find a victim and use their innocent appearance to seduce and destroy him.

 Once they have stepped over the line, they find it impossible to stop. And soon they are contemplating the ultimate evil act. Hugely controversial, the film was banned for blasphemy and was never released theatrically in the US. This first Blu-ray release is newly restored from the film’s original negative and includes a number of exclusive extra features. The film was screened as part of the Directors Fortnight at the 1971 Cannes Film Festival.


- Brand new restoration from original negative; new interview with director Joël Séria; archive interview with Joël Séria; archive interview with actress Jeanne Goupil; archive interview with writer/critic Paul Buck; audio commentary from Kat Ellinger; optional English subtitles; Mondo Macabro previews


“Don’t Deliver Us From Evil is a fascinating film and is quite mesmerizing… This is a found gem that comes highly recommended!” Gore Girl’s Dungeon

 “a minor masterpiece and, for the art-house crowd and cult enthusiast, it’s required viewing.”

 “a depraved coming of age story of friendship, steeped in satanic vows, cruel intentions, forbidden books, and a macabre atmosphere” Ian West; Letterboxd
