A deeply unsettling first trailer for Karyn Kusama’s excellent psychological horror The Invitation has arrived.

“In this taut psychological thriller by Karyn Kusama (Girlfight, Jennifer’s Body), the tension is palpable when Will (Logan Marshall-Green, Prometheus) shows up to a dinner party hosted by his ex-wife Eden (Tammy Blanchard, Into the Woods) and new husband David (Michiel Huisman, Game of Thrones). The estranged divorcees’ tragic past haunts an equally eerie 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 what threats are real or imagined.”

We caught The Invitation at the London Film Festival last year and absolutely loved it (read our five-star review here). Fingers crossed for a UK release soon.

The Invitation is released on 23 March in the US. Keep up with the latest horror news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
