#THEINVITATION Teaser Trailer

Here is the teaser trailer for Karyn Kusama's intense psychological thriller, THE INVITATION . The critically-acclaimed film will hit theaters and VOD on March 25 from Drafthouse Films. In this taut psychological thriller by Karyn Kusama (Girlfight, Jennifer's Body), the tension is palpable when Will ( Logan Marshall-Green , Prometheus) shows up to his ex-wife Eden ( Tammy Blanchard , Into the Woods) and new husband, David's ( Michiel Huisman , "Game of Thrones") dinner party. The pair's tragic past haunts an equally spooky present: Amid Eden's suspicious behavior and her mysterious house guests, Will becomes convinced that his invitation was extended with a hidden agenda. Unfolding over one dark evening in the Hollywood Hills, The Invitation blurs layers of mounting paranoia, mystery, and horror until both Will-and the audience-are unsure what threats are real or imagined.

Borgman Review. Superbly Written, Directed & Acted Dark Comedy

Borgman Review By: Sue Borgman is a superbly written, directed and acted dark comedy that does not rely on any fancy special effects or mind numbing action. When a disheveled man shows up on your doorstep most people would turn him away, but when a married woman sneaks him into her home, she has no idea what she is in for. Alex van Warmerdam's Borgman is at times dark and confusing, but it is also highly entertaining and hilarious. Borgman sets up an absurd reality from the beginning, one where you aren't sure what the heck is going on. A priest and his companion hunt silently through the fields, accompanied by a braying dog. They are armed and deadly. Their quarry is Camiel Borgman ( Jan Bijvoet ), living in an underground den. As he runs from his hunters he takes time to awaken a pair of friends hidden in dens of their own. He hitches a ride to suburbia and begins going door to door asking for a bath. He finally comes to the home of artist Marina ( Hadewych Mini
