Drafthouse Films has picked up the distribution rights to Karyn Kusama‘s horror-thriller The Invitation after its premiere at this year’s SXSW. The film stars Logan Marshall-Green as a guy attending a dinner party at his old house hosted by his ex-wife and her new husband. As the night continues he starts to become paranoid that the two have something nefarious in mind.
“The Invitation has remained under our skin since we first saw it and we’re honored that we’ll be able to share with audiences everywhere,” said Drafthouse COO James Emanuel Shapiro. “Karyn, Phil and Matt have crafted one of the best mysteries we’ve ever seen.”
“I know I speak for our whole team when I say that we could not be more thrilled to be working with Drafthouse Films for the release of ‘The Invitation.’ Drafthouse is a one-of-a-kind label and an influential arbiter of taste. We love what they do. I’m excited by their passionate enthusiasm for the film and truly honored to be working with them,” said Kusama.
There’s no word yet on a release date, but I’m very anxious to check this one out.
