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?
During the film, it is often mentioned that cellphone service at the home where The Invitation takes place is unreliable and spotty at best, yet several times the viewer can clearly see the lights of what appears to be a nearby densely populated area. See more »
You look different, Edie.
I am different. I'm free. All that useless pain, it's gone. It's something anyone can have, Will, and I want you to have it too.

Gigantic build up to nothing interesting.
The cast it's arguably good. But the film is paced so slowly that it just becomes too boring to watch and enjoy at the same time.
You are waiting for the big twist of all the build up but the ending just isn't satisfying and doesn't make up for the wasted time of nothing substantial happening.
