BAM | 30 Lafayette Ave.
Directed by Karyn Kusama
With Logan Marshall-Green, Michiel Huisman, Tammy Blanchard
In this taut psychological thriller by Karyn Kusama (Girlfight, Jennifer’s Body), the tension is palpable when Will shows up at his ex-wife Eden’s 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 which threats are real or imagined. A Drafthouse Films release.
Directed by Michael Mohan
