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.
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. It is a psychological thriller, after all.
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.
A man accepts an invitation to a dinner party hosted by his ex-wife, an unsettling affair that reopens old wounds and creates new tensions. Will and Eden were once a loving couple. After a tragedy took their son, Eden disappeared.

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.
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.
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.
The real twist of The Invitation’s ending is far more unnerving and complicated. That element explodes into violence in the film’s last act when it is revealed that the group Eden, David and Pruitt belong to – The Invitation – is a cult that believes the way to create peace is through death.
Parents need to know that The Invitation is a thriller with some bloody/ gory , horror-style scenes. There’s lots of fighting, punching, bashing, shooting, and stabbing, with plenty of blood and many dead bodies. Ultimately this is a smart, well-made thriller that should provide food for thought for mature viewers.
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.
