‘The Invitation’ Gets a Nerve-Racking New Trailer

The Invitation, Karyn Kusama’s dinner-party thriller, has a new full trailer. And it’s absolutely unnerving. It revolves around a man (Logan Marshall-Green), invited to a dinner party hosted by his ex-wife and her new husband. And things are, to put it lightly, not cool.

Here is the trailer:

Kusama, whose underrated thriller Jennifer’s Body has found a cult following in recent years, has loaded this film with sideways glances and paranoia. The Invitation kicked off the 2015 SXSW Festival in Austin, and has been building momentum ever since. “It’s like, How do you describe a rollercoaster?” Kusama says of her film. “You’ve just got to get on the rollercoaster!”

This is right in my wheelhouse, the close-quartered thriller with twists and turns and shocking revelations. The Invitation also stars John Carroll Lynch, Tammy Blanchard, Michael Huisman, and Emayatzy Corinealdi. It will be released theatrically and On Demand April 8.
