Description: Writer-director Jon Braver offers up an all-new variation of his wonderful combination of drama and walk-through haunted house. This Halloween's interactive play, entitled DELUSION: MASQUE OF MORTALITY, takes its audience back to the year 1931, as they seek refuge from a plague decimating the land - apparently inspired by Poe's "Masque of the Red Death."

In case you are out of the loop, Delusion sets a new bar for Halloween events in Los Angeles. It realizes the claim other haunts make but fail to achieve - placing you inside the horror, as an active participant.

More information from the official press release:

The best original live-action horror experience returns to L.A. for its 3rd year as
DELUSION: Masque of Mortality, from September 26 to November 23!

Los Angeles, September 10, 2013 - The original interactive horror theater company is BAC Kwith a vengeance. This year, the much anticipated DELUSION live-action horror experience returns to Los Angeles with a new location, new story, and new official title - DELUSION: Masque of Mortality.

Taking place at the Bethany Presbyterian Church in Silverlake, show-goers will be taken back in time to 1930, where there has been an outbreak of the plague. Mysterious figures calling themselves The Doctors have promised a remedy not only to the plague, but of a greater life, free of the oppression of God and human limitations. Amongst all of this, you find refuge in The Church, where you await to be summoned when the time is right... In the meantime, you will seek comfort at the bar where fellow refugees will imbibe on craft cocktails of liquid courage, while they await their destiny.

DELUSION is the original first-person horror experience where you are the lead character. If you haven’t attended DELUSION, imagine being a character in a horror film.. moving through a dark, new world, where secrets and horror lurk around every corner. To survive, you must push forward into dark paths, and unravel the mysteries yourself. Last year’s executive producer, Neil Patrick Harris, says “DELUSION re-imagines and redefines the horror experience with an innovative blend of theatrics and action in a live performance that has never been done before. There are no seats, no comfort of the fourth wall and audience members really have to engage and participate to move the story forward.”

DELUSION has defined a new category of horror experience that has spurred similar shows around the country. However, only DELUSION holds true to the form, where you become the protagonist in a hands-on experience with special effects and theatrics produced by Hollywood stunt director Jon Braver, who has worked on A-list films The Dark Knight Rises, Star Trek, Iron Man and many others. In past year’s it’s been said that DELUSION is the “...single best horror event in Los Angeles” and “the hottest ticket in town...” Last year, Delusion: The Blood Rite sold out quickly, and had to be extended. This year, DELUSION will have a full extended run from September 26 through November 23 and is sure to sell out. Tickets are available now at and are going fast!

Come to the refuge... and play your part!!!
