We see a lot of great indie horror work here at Dread Central. But every once in awhile we get a look at something that stands out, something that looks like it’s got a chance to rise above and be the next micro-budget film to set the world on fire. Judging by its trailer, Delirium might be it.
We are beginning to become accustomed to the fact that, from time to time, horror films made on tiny budgets are going to go crazy at the box office. Looking back, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Halloween, The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity are all films that fall into the category of surprise runaway hits. Delirium could be next. Take a look at the amazing trailer below and see if you don’t agree that the film has fantastic potential.
Currently in post-production, Delirium is looking at a release date around June of this year. Jared Black wrote and directed the film which stars Jolene Kay, Nathan Polzin, Jonathan Mandell, Taylor Pigeon and Chris Gann.

A big Dread Central saaaa-lute to horror’s Geraldo Rivera, Avery G, for sniffing this one out and giving us the heads up!
Emily has mysteriously returned home to her mother, Rachel, and stepfather, Timothy, after being missing for over a year. There are no clues as to where she has been, and after extensive medical research, no one has been able to provide any answers to the mystery of the past year. Upon Emily’s return, her biological father, Barry, has decided to launch a custody war against Rachel and Timothy, threatening to take Emily away from Rachel again.
As the days go on, strange events begin occurring in the home. Something came back with Emily. Delirium explores the story of two parents faced with the ultimate double-edged sword, through 90 minutes of heart-pounding events and situations. Rachel and Timothy are presented with the choice of keeping Emily in a dangerous home or letting her father take her.
Delirium has been received extremely well in test screenings with audience members being left in tears at the dramatic and emotional ending, which seems to last with them for days. The film has been labeled “a family horror film,” meaning it offers something for just about everyone in the family, creating a whole new category and raising the bar for entertainment. Delirium delivers twists and turns, intense situations, dramatic moments, complicated dilemmas, and of course, extremely scary and violent moments.
