Have you ever imagined what you’d do as the main character
in a horror movie? How would you react? Where would you run? Would you
sacrifice yourself to save your friends? DELUSION: THE BLOOD RITE brings your
worst fears to life and creates a truly immersive and interactive horror
experience that is unlike any other haunted attraction.
Last year, Haunted Play’s DELUSION was a huge success, even
attracting a multitude of celebrity guests, including Neil Patrick Harris who,
this year, has been appointed as co-producer of the show. Attendees of last
year’s show will be pleased to see not only a longer piece, but also an
expansion on the same storyline, bringing an even more realistic and profound
depth to the already very involved plot. Writer/director Jon Braver has created
a truly unique experience that every horror fan should have the chance to
DELUSION: THE BLOOD RITE is not just a haunted house or
maze, as one may suspect, it is a play and a fully interactive experience as
well. Each attendee is thrust directly into the horrors that lie within the
boundaries of the mansion. The house itself, nestled in the heart of South Los
Angeles, is decidedly creepy and has often functioned as the site of
on-location filming, including Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN. Unlike last year however,
the exterior of the house is utilized, and that is where the experience begins.
You are a WWI veteran with ties to Dr. Lowell’s experiments,
and forces have drawn you back. Your presence unleashes a string of events
having to do with the patients, who all possess supernatural abilities. As you
make your way through the house, the story of Dr. Lowell unfolds and you come
to understand your own connection to his heinous experiments on his inmates.
Besides providing an in-depth tale that connects the audience to the house they
are guided through, the scares themselves are highly effective and unlike any
other haunt. Jolts come from all directions, but not without purpose. The
frights are built into the story seamlessly.
Unlike many other haunts, the fear here is driven by the story, and not
merely based around masked characters jumping at you. Mind you, the actors will
touch, which only heightens the anticipation and suspense as the journey
DELUSION: THE BLOOD RITE is a horror attraction that, at
times, words fail. From the exceptional original score by Siddhartha Barnhoorn and
the expertly done FX (including wire-work 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 show has been extended until December 9th, and tickets
have been selling out nightly, so get them now at Haunted Play.
