Don't Deliver Us from Evil (original title: Mais ne nous délivrez pas du mal) is a 1971 French film directed by Joël Séria. It is loosely based on the Parker–Hulme murder case of 1954.


Two young convent girls named Anne and Lore become friends and decide to spend the summer together. At the convent school they take a vow to do evil. Over summer vacation, left to their own devices, they become more and more demented.
