It is only when he returns to the house that the feelings inundate him with guilt and repentance. 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.
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.
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.
Gina, who had sipped her drink before Will’s intervention, collapses and dies . The couple overpower him, and Kira beats him to death. Eden shoots Will , then in shock, shoots herself in the stomach. Tommy attacks David, stabbing him with a knife.
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.
In the book their son Michael kills his cousin Bo and gets rid of his body. He does this without remorse just as he committed the crime leading you to believe he is a sociopath like his father.
And their son was accidentally killed by another boy , family friend.
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.
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.
