Quickly being mentioned as a film not to miss this year is the Karyn Kusama head turner THE INVITATION. A chilling tale about a man who attends a dinner party for his ex and her new husband, both he and the viewer have an experience like no other. Drafthouse Films will release THE INVITATION on VOD and in theaters on March 25th. The first trailer debuted last week and we have it ahead ICYMI. Look for more on this one soon!
In this taut psychological thriller by Karyn Kusama (Girlfight, Jennifer’s Body), the tension is palpable when Will (Logan Marshall-Green, Prometheus) shows up to his ex-wife Eden (Tammy Blanchard, Into the Woods) and new husband, David’s (Michiel Huisman, “Game of Thrones”) dinner party. The pair’s tragic past haunts an equally spooky present: Amid Eden’s suspicious behavior and her mysterious house guests, Will becomes convinced that his invitation was extended with a hidden agenda. Unfolding over one dark evening in the Hollywood Hills, The Invitation blurs layers of mounting paranoia, mystery, and horror until both Will-and the audience-are unsure what threats are real or imagined.
THE INVITATION is directed by Karyn Kusama and stars Logan Marshall-Green, Tammy Blanchard, Michiel Huisman, Emayatzy Corinealdi and John Carroll Lynch. It will be available March 25 (In Theaters & On VOD).
