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?
Well, that’s the billing, but it looks like a very slow slow-thriller, almost to the point of putting me asleep.
If you still care, it also stars Michelle Krusiec and The Age Of Adaline‘s Michiel Huisman, and is directed by Karyn Kusama from a script by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi.
The Invitation doesn’t yet have a UK or US cinema release date, but another look made me realise it’s had a limited internet release only.
And for some reason, when Movieclips uploaded this video, they thought it started Liam Hemsworth. As one of the comments confirms, Mr Hemsworth did not get the invitation… ho-ho.
