The Invitation (2015) was Karyn Kusama’s follow-up to Jennifer’s Body (2009) which turned out to be a masterfully done slow burn that is an anxious viewing with some seriously terrifying moments, but it feels like nobody saw it?

Guest Anna Jo and I,  discuss why this under-the-radar creepy film it’s a must-watch with some serious after the pandemic vibes and filled with stunning performances that will keep you glued to the screen.

Additionally, we tackle gaslighting, why this movie is a nightmare situation for both of us, casual horror fandom, needle drops in Marvel movies, and much more!
