Join Indievents and Club David, Wednesday, April 20, for the South Dakota Premiere of THE INVITATION.
THE INVITATION has won several awards including Best Picture at Sitges Film Festival. It is one of the most talked about thrillers in the film festival circuit over the past year.
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.
Here are some press quotes about the film:

“#1 Film not to miss in 2016…You won’t see a more shocking thriller all year” – Village Voice
“Masterfully tense” – Sight & Sound
“Nerve jangling…doesn’t miss a step” – The Playlist
