Hollywood Gothique Says:

This impressive combination of storytelling, stunts, and special effects sets the bar by which all other Halloween haunts in Los Angeles are measured. By infusing the traditional walk-through haunted house experience with interactive drama, Delusion turns its audience into vicarious participants, experiencing the horror first-hand – a unique combo that others have imitated but never equaled.

About Delusion Interactive Theatre

This impressive combination of storytelling, stunts, and special effects sets the bar by which all other Halloween haunts in Los Angeles are measured. By infusing the traditional walk-through haunted house experience with interactive drama, Delusion turned its audience into vicarious participants, experiencing the horror first-hand - a unique combo that others have imitated but never equaled.

History of Delusion Interactive Theatre

With its 2011 debut, simply billed as Delusion, the "haunted play"  immediately established itself as one of the best Halloween events in Los Angeles. Created by writer-director Jon Braver (a Hollywood stunt coordinator), Delusion took audiences on a forty-minute tour through a turn-of-the-century mansion, with, the story unfolding around you in the rooms of the 106-year-old house.

The 2012 version, titled Delusion: The Blood Rite (originally announced as "Delusion: The Crimson Queen"), was co-produced by actor Neil Patrick Harris. This was a direct sequel to its predecessor, taking place years later but in the same location, still haunted by the ghosts of the past.

In 2013, Braver offered an all-new variation of his interactive Halloween attraction, entitled Delusion: Masque of Mortality. The play took its audience back to the year 1931, as they sought refuge from a plague. Unfortunately, Delusion: Masque of Mortality was plagued by permit problems at its new location, which resulted in cancelled performances. (Reviewed here.)

In 2014, Delusion Lies Within returned to the West Adams area, near where the first two incarnations of Delusion were performed (in 2011 and 2012). This fine return to form included some of the most amazing effects ever achieved in a live Halloween event - and by "effect" we mean not just virtuoso technique but dramatic impact. (Reviewed here.)

Delusion went on hiatus for 2015, returning in 2016 with Delusion: His Crimson Queen (reviewed here). 2017 was another hiatus, followed by a return in 2018 with Delusion: The Blue Blade, which ran during the Halloween season, then returned for a brief run the following Spring. Halloween 2019 saw a scaled-down production from Delusion, titled Alt Delete, which was billed as a chapter in The Blue Blade saga.
