  • Extended (Vinegar Syndrome Blu-ray)

The UK VHS from Vipco ("regular" version) was compared with the US Blu-ray of Vinegar Syndrome (Extended version).

After an accident, wealthy Ivar Langrock is in a wheelchair and dependent on help. Nurse Meredith Stone moves into his house to help him with everyday life. She immediately feels warmly welcomed by the cook Duffy and the butler Phillip. Langrock's grandson Gabriel, who previously lived in a hippie commune, also moves into the house. Meredith falls in love with him, while the family lawyer Jeffrey has his eye on Meredith. A terrible series of murders soon takes place in the house...

Delusion is a charming psychological thriller that skillfully builds up several mysteries and offers a surprising finale. The production is quite classic with few spectacular murder scenes. Patricia Pearcy (Squirm) can be seen in the leading role.

The film was released on Blu-ray by Vinegar Syndrome in the USA on May 28, 2024. The cover advertises a longer and previously unreleased cut of the film and indeed, the US Blu-ray contains some action scenes that have apparently never been seen before. This gives the movie more depth, as, for example, the relationship between Meredith and Jeffrey is developed further or Meredith's mother is dealt with a little more. However, the scenes are not absolutely necessary and it must be added that the movie is unfortunately stretched out a little more as a result. Due to the excellent picture quality of the US Blu-ray, the US Blu-ray is highly recommended either way.
