Karyn Kusama’s New Thriller THE INVITATION Opens Friday

Karyn Kusama (Girlfight, Jennifer’s Body), a dear friend and collaborator of John and Maggie’s, has a new movie coming out this Friday, April 8th! The Invitation is a taut psychological thriller that follows Will (Logan Marshall Green), as he attends a dinner party at the home of his ex-wife (Tammy Blanchard) and her new husband (Michiel Huisman of “Game of Thrones”).  As if that set-up isn’t spooky enough, Will becomes convinced that his invitation was extended with sinister intentions.


The Invitation was edited by another longtime collaborator of John and Maggie’s, Plummy Tucker. The screenplay was written by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi.

Village Voice critic Calum Marsh called the movie “so sweat-inducingly tense that I could only watch it through laced fingers.” John and Maggie, who caught a midnight screening of the film at the 2015 SXSW Film Festival, couldn’t agree more.

The Invitation will be in theaters and on VOD on April 8th. Karyn, along with members of the cast & crew, will be attending Q&A’s after screenings in Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, Austin and St. Louis. Check out the Drafthouse webpage for more information.
