Movie Ad of the Week: DELUSION (1981) / THE HOUSE WHERE DEATH LIVES (1984)

Alan Beattie's DELUSION (1981), starring Patricia Pearcy, David Hayward, Simone Griffeth and Joseph Cotten, opened in Santa Fe, NM on January 23, 1981. It was the last release from The International Picture Show Company, the indie that brought U.S. audiences SOLDIER OF ORANGE (1979), THE VISITOR (1980), WHERE TIME BEGAN (1978), the Tim Conway comedies THE BILLION DOLLAR HOBO (1977) and THEY WENT THAT-A-WAY & THAT-A-WAY (1978), and THE MAGIC OF LASSIE (1978).

Three years later, Beattie's movie arrived in 32 "Aquarius Showcase Theatres" in the New York area as THE HOUSE WHERE DEATH LIVES (February 3, 1984) from New American Films, a short-lived company co-owned by filmmaker Tim Kincaid and his wife, Cynthia DePaula.
