Next week, Karyn Kusama opens the SXSW Midnighters with her highly anticipated The Invitation, her long-awaited follow-up to the terrific (and undervalued) Jennifers Body that boasts something of a chilling premise. Shock Till You Drop presents the first poster for the film, an elegant piece designed by the acclaimed Justin Erickson, of Phantom City Creative, below.
Starring Logan Marshall-Green and Tammy Blanchard, The Invitation presents a scenario of disarray, past trauma, mistrust and paranoia; the perfect dinner party atmosphere. In the film, 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?
The Invitation premieres Friday, March 13th as part of Austins annual SXSW. You can find all screening info here, and expect much more on the film at Shock in the coming weeks.
