A video artist looking for work drives to a remote house in the forest to meet a man claiming to be a serial killer. But after agreeing to spend the day with him, she soon realizes that she made a deadly mistake.
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 director and the writers had complete creative control on the film, as it was independently produced without any involvement from major studios. See more »
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 »
This is an atypical movie, with a distinctive style and uncommon story; I think it is a unique piece of art about menacing invitation that took place in the hills, to summarize it i would say, it is about people last resort to slacken off their psychological pain, as a matter of fact, to mitigate pain, a lot of people participate in weird religious cults that might hurt them and hurt others as well. These things happen especially in places full of madness and stress, for instance, California, I'm just saying that this particular movie might freak out LA residents, there are holes in the plot, but it was amusing to watch nonetheless.
