About the Movie

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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: If the movie works as well as it does, it's because Ms. Kusama can coax scares from shadows, silences and ricocheting looks. – Manohla Dargis, New York Times, Apr 7, 2016

Fresh: Kusama ratchets the story's tension masterfully, building to a final shot that's as chilling as it is perfect. – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, Apr 8, 2016

Fresh: Will is the proxy through which we experience the increasingly confounding web of suspicion and surprises that are obfuscated by social niceties and facades of politesse. – Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times, Apr 15, 2016

Fresh: It's an unusually evocative achievement in suspense, and in a brand of cinematic paranoia unique to the hills, canyons and denizens of LA. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Apr 14, 2016

Customer Reviews


Painfully slow and boring-a series of uncomfortable conversations about each character’s feelings.

Worth it.

It had it’s slightly slow moments, but came together very nicely. Not a stinker. Worth a rental. Had a mood akin to "The Gift,” but with a better ending. Satisfying.

Creepy and amazing

This movie will stay with you. So well done!
