Johnny Martin’s new film “Delirium” is one heck of a great ride.

 

Martin has numerous films under his belt as a stunt man, stunt coordinator, writer, unit director and director. Delirium shows off his talents as director, producer and writer. This is an amazing man with close to half of his credits in the genre of horror. “Delirium”

Synopsis:

In the film “Delirium” a group of young men dare a classmate to reach the porch of a legendary old house, said to be haunted by the thirteen victims of a family massacre. In hopes of making a viral video they arm him with a video camera to prove he was there or to capture him fleeing in terror before even reaching the house, as others have. When he doesn’t return, the guys must go in to get him. Inside they discover the truth about the house, the fate of their friend and their own fate as well. Written By Lisa Clemens

Terra’s Opinion

This is the type of film I look for all year long. I usually only find one or two per year. Maybe this will be a bumper year for Indie horror!!!

My feelings “Delirium” are all positive. I love the plot (see synopsis above). As the first young man goes onto the property and close to the house it’s absolutely delicious. The scares start when he spies what he thinks is a human being. Guess what ……..it’s not.

There are a lot of jumpscares, but there are also some understated scares and some that are probably missed by many in the audience. The camera glides across a room and there is a being setting against a wall. The camera keeps going and never goes back. The viewer is left wondering where is that ghost? When will it jump out? Sometimes they come back around and sometimes they don’t. Either way is scary in a way that I haven’t experienced lately. The best scare last year in my opinion was “IT,” and this is a completely different scare.

As each boy becomes a victim of the ghosts of the house, the film becomes more frightening. This is what is supposed to happen in horror films, but doesn’t always or even often his the mark.

The acting is good, the plot is great. The film is well directed. It all comes together in a very pleasing way.

I recommend this “Delirium” to everyone who loves a scary movie. Get your popcorn, find the online or limited theater release and enjoy. This ones a treat.

Always interested in a good indie film, my taste run towards Horror and documentaries. Rom-coms are my least favorite genre, but I will always take a look for the better good of the site. I've reviewed films for seven years and want to do it for about 20 more...we will see.
