REVIEW: Delirium

Published

on

Netflix has rolled out a number of horror titles over the past month or so, due to the Halloween holiday, and while there was a lot of new content to go through, some titles from this year may have gotten buried a bit under the mass.

One of those titles is ‘Delirium’, starring Topher Grace, Genesis Rodriguez, and Patricia Clarkson, and arrived this year on the streaming platform, telling the story of “A man recently released from a mental institute inherits a mansion after his wealthy parents die. After a series of disturbing events, he comes to believe it is haunted.”

The movie toes the line between mental illness, paranoia, and the paranormal and consistently puts the viewer in the position of determining whether what Tom (Topher Grace) is experiencing in the house is real, or simply a mental break.

When Tom’s brother Alex (Callan Mulvey) shows up to search the house for their deceased dad’s money, things take a terrible turn. Tom forges a relationship with a local grocery deliver girl Lynn (Rodriguez) who feels a connection with Tom due to her own mental issues.

Under the watch of officer Brody (Clarkson) who seems to find Tom both disturbing and sexually appealing, Tom struggles to deal with what is going on in the house as the events get progressively worse and his paranoia kicks into another gear.

As the movie unfolds, untold dark family secrets start to unravel and push the movie towards some surprising twists and turns at the end.

Delirium won’t be the most unforgettable horror/thriller you will see in 2018, but it quietly makes it’s way into one of the more memorable flicks of the 2018 year. While it gets lost within itself a few times, it steers towards an intriguingly deeper plot that will certainly keep you on your toes, and delivers and ending out of left field.
