Reviews

"The show is beautiful: well-crafted, well-acted, well-directed...   of all the Halloween shows in Los Angeles,   Delusion is the crown jewel."

"Delusion has created a genre in interactive horror theater that no one has come close to beating. The attention to detail, production value, and level of absolute excellence they have achieved is unmatched."

"...truly a play that no person should miss. It is this brief moment where you get to escape the mundane and explore a world of monsters...  it was unlike anything else I’ve ever experienced."

"Hottest ticket in town. Delusion’s story is gothic and twisted …its scares driven by psychology."

"...one could go to Delusion multiple times and not have the same experience twice...  Braver & Co. have become the undisputed kings of the haunted attraction."

"It might be the scariest play you’ve ever seen, because you are in it. It’s a psychological thriller that tests your courage. It is sure to keep you up at night."

"Delusion is one of the most thrilling and innovative experiences I participated in this Halloween season. And I’m kicking myself for waiting so long to see it."

"From the exceptional score and the expertly done FX (including wirework and other stunts), to the immensely talented cast and exciting concept, this event is truly unique and should be a no-brainer for anyone looking for the single best horror event in Los Angeles."

The Experience

How would it feel to be a character in a real-life horror and suspense film? Touted as "the future of live entertainment" and "the single greatest event in LA" this moving play immerses you in a living, breathing world as you play your part in a psychologically disturbing tale of horror, suspense, mystery and adventure. First premiered in 2011, Delusion is on a mission to re-define live theatre by creating psychologically disturbing, interactive experiences that incorporate the audience into the story as characters.

Using an innovative blend of suspenseful storytelling, a chilling original score, visual FX, and professional actors and stuntmen, Delusion creates a truly one of a kind word-class immersive experience. You will interact with actors, perform actions, retrieve objects, solve mysteries, choose paths and perhaps sacrifice yourself to move the story forward. You are invited to become a key player in Delusion's next twisted tale! How far will you go to fully realize your journey into the darkness and beyond?

Allow yourself to enter a world of horror, mystery and adventure... leaving your former life behind. Some of you will be asked to perform certain actions to further the story so a strong mind will be necessary. But in the end, it's all great fun! After the show, people held each other, laughed and were dying to go again!
