THE INVITATION
2015, Drafthouse Films, 98 min, USA, Dir: Karyn Kusama

Set high up in the Hollywood Hills, THE INVITATION turns a familiar reunion scenario into a supremely terrifying thriller that is as sophisticated, thoughtful and disturbing as anything you’ll see in a long time. Will (Logan Marshall-Green) returns to his former home to attend a dinner party mysteriously arranged by his ex-wife, Eden (Tammy Blanchard), and her new husband, David (Michiel Huisman). As he reconnects with old friends, Will succumbs to an overwhelming paranoia that something is desperately wrong and that he is surrounded by dark forces. “A perfectly pitched exercise in psychological dread.” - Justin Chang, Variety.
