Karyn Kusama’s The Invitation Coming From Mondo - Print and Vinyl


From Mondo:

Karyn Kusama’s The Invitation is a razor sharp psychological thriller set during a swanky Los Angeles dinner party. Things at this party are either perfectly normal or hyper crazy depending on the audience’s perspective and proclivity towards paranoia. This is a film made by very smart people so we naturally turned to the very smart Alan Hynes to come up with a very smart poster.

The Invitation poster and vinyl soundtrack (previously announced) will be one sale tomorrow at 12PM CSTat mondotees.com.

Mondo is proud to present Theodore Shapiro’s soundtrack to Karyn Kusama’s haunting thriller The Invitation. The film takes place over the course of one night as a group of old friends gather for a reunion, which includes two divorcees (Will & Eden, complete with new partners in tow). During the course of the meal, tensions and paranoia overflow as old wounds are opened and friendships tested. The atmosphere burns with a slow sense of dread as Will becomes ever more paranoid with each passing conversation, alienating himself from those around him.

The beauty of the film is that by the time you think you have it figured out, it turns around and slaps you clean in the face. The score by Theodore Shapiro is an integral part of the terror and darkness of The Invitiation, and it easily stands head and shoulders as a true horror score. It’s quiet yet unnerving and disquieting. If you loved the sparseness of The Witch, then The Invitation is definitely for you...but we won’t take responsibility if you spin it late at night and end up cowering in the corner.

Composer Theodore Shapiro said, "The Invitation perfectly captures something essential about life in Los Angeles. The score mostly functions in the film as the voice of dread, haunted memories, and grief that sits underneath the surface of a dinner party in the hills of LA. The music follows the film in its descent from uneasiness towards true terror.”
