Delirium (Italian: Le foto di Gioia, lit. 'Photos of Gioia') is a 1987 Italian giallo film directed by Lamberto Bava and starring Serena Grandi, David Brandon, George Eastman and Daria Nicolodi.
In an interview, director Lamberto Bava suggested that after doing a few gialli back-to-back, he began to feel unenthusiastic about the genre. Preferring more fantastical films like Demons. This led to Bava to explore the notion of the killer's point of view in Delirium, which involved showing the killer's perception of his victims by giving them grotesque visual features. This ranges from one woman having a giant eyeball for a face while another had the appearance of a bee.
Bava stated this was one of the few films he had time and budget to get the results he desired for the film.
