We’ve been eagerly awaiting the latest film from director Karyn Kusama (JENNIFER’S BODY, GIRL FIGHT) ever since early positive word of mouth from festival screenings started pouring out last year, and now Drafthouse Films has set March 25th for the official release date, both in theaters and VOD for THE INVITATION. We’ve also got a teaser trailer to whet our appetites! Check it out below, along with the synopsis and a few still images!
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.
Starring: Logan Marshall-Green, Tammy Blanchard, Michiel Huisman, Emayatzy Corinealdi & John Carroll Lynch. Written by Phil Hay & Matt Manfredi. Directed by Karyn Kusama. In Theaters & On VOD March 25th.
