Watch: First Teaser for Karyn Kusama's Horror Thriller 'The Invitation'

The Invitation Teaser Trailer

"Each and every one of us is on a journey…" Drafthouse Films has debuted a teaser trailer for a film called The Invitation, a horror thriller about a lovely dinner party that seems to have a darker side. Logan Marshall-Green plays Will, who is invited to a dinner party at his ex-wife's home, and begins to wonder if her and her new husband have "sinister intentions for their guests." The cast includes Michiel Huisman, John Carroll Lynch, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Tammy Blanchard, Mike Doyle and Lindsay Burdge. I'm not sure what's going to happen but it looks freaky. Those who have seen it will tell you that it's "one of those films about which it is best to know as little as possible before watching it." This shows just enough.

Here's the first teaser trailer for Karyn Kusama's The Invitation, originally debuted on

The Invitation Poster

Will and Eden were once a loving couple. After a tragedy took their son, Eden disappeared. Two years later, out of the blue, she returns with a new husband… and as a different person, eerily changed and eager to reunite with her ex and those she left behind. Over the course of a dinner party in the house that was once his, the haunted Will is gripped by mounting evidence that Eden and her new friends have a mysterious and terrifying agenda. But can we trust Will's hold on reality? Or will he be the unwitting catalyst of the doom he senses? The Invitation is directed by filmmaker Karyn Kusama (Girlfight, Aeon Flux, Jennifer's Body), from a screenplay by Phil Hay & Matt Manfredi. This first premiered at last year's SXSW Film Festival. Drafthouse Films will release The Invitation in select theaters starting March 25th.
