All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Invitation (2016)

Starring: Logan Marshall-Green, Tammy Blanchard, Michiel Huisman, John Carroll Lynch, Emayatzy Corinealdi
Director: Karyn Kusama

A couple is invited to a dinner party thrown by his ex wife and her new boyfriend. Old friends arrive and so does the trauma of the former couple which leads the man to believe their hosts have anterior motives.

My Take:
The movie does a great job of building intense drama between the former couple by showing on how they are each coping still with their child's death. Then it plays a fine line between what is reason for the gathering vs what might be in the mind of the main character. It's all boils up to an outstanding climax.

Rating: So Good

Watched: Netflix Instant
