The chances are you didn’t catch Karyn Kusama’s 2015 film The Invitation in cinemas as it got a pretty limited release, but it’s been given a new lease of life on Netflix this month.
Actually, claire was killed . It was in a deleted scene, she was attacked by pruitt in the bushes. The director revealed this in the film’s commentary.
Written by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi, the screenwriting team behind Ride Along and Clash of the Titans, the movie was brought to Kusama, who is married to Hay, early in the writing process. But the movie is in no way based on real experiences.

The Invitation Official Trailer #1 (2016) – Liam Hemsworth .
Written in a letter form, in an informal format. Such letters are very persuasive in nature. Written in the first person. Salutation is ‘dear + name’. Complimentary close ‘Yours sincerely’. Date of writing the invitation is given. Sender’s address appears on the left-hand side. Various tenses used to suit the sense.
Feeling regret over the violence of the killings, Eden is comforted by David, who assures her that what they are doing is the only way they can leave the earth and be freed from their pain. Will retrieves a fireplace poker from Sadie while she lies dying from apparently drinking the poison.
However, Karyn Kusama confirmed that Claire didn’t actually survive. In the movie’s commentary, Kusama discloses that she had intended to reveal Claire’s fate—she was murdered by Pruitt after he followed her to her car—and even show this to the audience.
And their son was accidentally killed by another boy, family friend.
Since the film has a strict main character POV, we’re left inside and wondering along with Will. Kusama reveals in the commentary that Claire was indeed attacked off screen bu Pruitt and a scene of her in the bushes, dying from her wounds, was eventually cut from the film for story reasons.
The ending comes alive from the moment Eden pours glasses with poisoned wine. The mix of nervousness and joy blanks her face and is a forewarning of what is to come. The movie springs to life and every little action of the characters in the middle starts making sense.
It comes to their knowledge that they were not the only ones in this. Earlier we saw that before the drinks were served, David lit the red lantern. This indicated that it was a sign for the commencement of the sinister events. The cult group ‘The Invitation ‘ has brainwashed many people in LA.
Sadie – Stabbed in the neck with a fireplace poker, body shown. Pruitt – Beaten to death with a fireplace poker by Kira. Eden – Committed suicide by shooting herself in the stomach. David – Stabbed to death by Tommy.
Will tells David that Eden shot herself and David is glad, because she’s with “them” now. Kira realizes that the gun is empty. Will warns David not to approach because they have a gun but David isn’t worried about his own death because “it’s time.” He’s stopped short by Tommy who has survived the stabbing.
The film is centered around a lavish dinner party that reunites friends (and lovers) who haven’t seen each other in over two yearsand I really don’t want to say much more than that.
