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.
Since the movie makes it obvious that the house is in LA/Hollywood Hills, the unreliable service issue is an early indicator that something is wrong and most likely deliberately caused by the hosts so the guests can't call out. See more »
Will thinks you guys are on pills. Figuratively.
You think we're crazy?
I-I never said that.
It's okay, I'm not offended. A lot of people think we're crazy. But I doubt they're as happy as we are.

Slow but great
I've read a few reviews here both for and against the film. I'm a die hard thriller fan and I thought that this film was very well done. It is slow- but why is that a bad thing?- I'm not sure. It builds to a great ending.
My only meh is the actress who plays Eden. I think they could have cast her better. Other than that I'll say worth the watch if you like thrillers.
