We’re very excited to hear that one of the best original live-action horror experiences is returning to L.A. as DELUSION: Masque of Mortality.
During haunt season we like to take a break from the large multi-maze theme park events and venture out to the local independent haunts and Halloween experiences such as The Haunted Play Presents: Delusion. To our delight and fright, for the past 2 years, DELUSION has been one of our most highly rated haunts. It has not only impressed us but also actor Neil Patrick Harris who loved it so much, he signed on as co-producer for last year’s intensely wicked show. What we all like about DELUSION is that it’s not the typical haunted house/maze experience you’d find elsewhere. Here you find yourself inside a completely immersible environment from the moment you walk onto the property. It’s best described as part haunted house, part theater, and part interactive story. It is a very unique attraction with amazing set design, great actors, stunts, magic, and of course… some very good scares.
Here’s a fun look back at 2012’s Delusion: Blood Rite
For 2013 the original interactive horror theater company is BACK with 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 the Silverlake area of Los Angeles, 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.
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. You should also allow 2 hours for the whole experience. This should account for everything from parking, checking in, refreshments, waiting for your show time, THE SHOW, and after…decompression!
