- Flixster activity is somewhat encouraging.

CONS:

- Reviews are in the cellar.
- The big success of 22 Jump Street and Neighbors has diminished demand for another comedy this soon.
- Twitter activity has been sluggish.

Deliver Us From Evil

PROS:

- Horror fans have been starved in recent months outside of low-level performers like Oculus.
- Eric Bana adds some recognition that many horrors usually lack.
- Facebook activity is healthy.

CONS:

- Online buzz is noticeably weak for a horror flick.
- Bana is far from a guaranteed box office draw.
- The upcoming Purge sequel is likely taking attention away from this among the target audience.

Earth to Echo

PROS:

- Families and pre-teens looking for an alternative to typical summer blockbusters could check this out.
