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 EW.com:

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.

    Why such horrors are not happening to people who run banks. Sometimes, I wonder about that and think, that would be really cool think to watch ...
    • I'd like it to happen in real life. Not on screen.
      • shiboleth
        Thanks for that observation. I am not really willing to be a sadist when I say, 'that would be really cool think to watch', but comparing to a real life issues for a lot of people in this world, yeah, that would be right thing, seeing bank executives in awkward horror situation, that would be in fact the real everybody anticipates, if I may say so ...
        • We already live in a horror situation created by bankers, maybe it's time folk stopped thinking society will sort itself out and just chop a few of them up. :-)
          • shiboleth
            Sure, some people, bankers definitely, deserve all the contempt most people have for them. If that, what you propose, would solve some problems, I would be totally ok with that. But somehow, I'm not sure. Breaking some rotten eggs is, I'm afraid, just not enough ...
          • You'd have to break the whole box of eggs I think. But yep, it's not such a realistic idea. Seems people are pretty happy being miserable, until they get unhappy nothing is going to change. :-(
          • shiboleth
            Couldn't agree more.
    • There was the International with Naomi Watts and Clive Owen I think? It wasn't a horror as much as it was a thriller. Never saw it, and I'm not recommending it, but your comment got me thinking
      • shiboleth
        I know about that one but I share your experience: never watched it. And I don't know if I ever will. Doesn't look like something worth my time. As for the rest, what can I add? Maybe just this: world we live in is very comfortable with horror and pleasure at the same time.
  • cuckoozey
    A horror film that's not a remake or a sequel? I'm in.
  • DAVIDPD
    Damn Pagans...!
  • Mr. Guymon
    ah...what is this and where is it going?
  • Terry Craig
    "Abigail's Party" with a psycho protagonist? I'm kinda interested.
