REVIEW — “The Invitation”
From the opening scene, “The Invitation” creates an eery and overwhelming sense of dread and uncertainty. It wonderfully, creepily encapsulates it, and escalates it, for 100 minutes of fantastic terror and psychological horror. It begins at a dinner party for Will (Logan-Marshall Green)’s ex-girlfriend, and he has his new girlfriend by his side. From the get-go something is unusual. There’s a silent mystery of despair in the air, but the film sweetly takes its time to slowly unravel what actually went down. On top of that, as the night goes on, he begins to suspect that his ex and her new husband might be planning something sinister for him and his old friends.
