The latest project from acclaimed GIRLFIGHT director Karyn Kusama creeps closer to a release, and so today brings a couple of clips and character posters for the intense psychological thriller THE INVITATION.
Arguably best known for her more mainstream work with the likes of AEON FLUX and JENNIFER’S BODY, Kusama returns to the indie scene with this truly terrifying film which has captivated audiences on the festival circuit. You can catch our Holly’s four-star review from the London Film Festival right here.
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 a dinner party hosted by his ex-wife Eden (Tammy Blanchard, Into the Woods) and new husband David (Michiel Huisman, “Game of Thrones”). The estranged divorcees’ tragic past haunts an equally eerie 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 unleashed in limited US theaters and VOD April 8, and stars Logan Marshall-Green, Tammy Blanchard, Michiel Huisman, Emayatzy Corinealdi, and John Carroll Lynch.
