THE INVITATION

New England Premiere!

Skype Q+A with screenwriter Phil Hay following the screening!

(2015) dir Karyn Kusama w/Logan Marshall-Green, Michiel Huisman, John Carroll Lynch, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Tammy Blanchard [100 min;DCP]
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.

“A dinner-party mystery so sweat-inducingly tense that I could only watch it through laced fingers.” – Calum Marsh, Village Voice

“‘The Invitation’ is one of the most devastating films of the year.” – Mike Snoonian, All Things Horror

“‘The Invitation’ is my nightmare.” – Fred Topel, Nerd Report
