“The Invitation” is a 2022 horror/thriller starring Nathalie Emmanuel (Game of Thrones), Thomas Doherty (Descendants 3), Stephanie Corneliussen (Mr. Robot), Alana Boden (I am Elizabeth Smart), and Sean Pertwee (Gotham).
A struggling artist from NY takes a DNA test and finds out she’s related to a wealthy family in England when her cousin from England contacts her and shows up. He invites her to a wedding in England and she accepts. The wedding is being held by an even wealthier family with a giant manor, the head of the household is around her age, single, and seems like the perfect gentleman. Although, he’s hiding a dark secret she’s soon about to find out.
I like a good vampire movie, but they’re hit or miss. This one has the aesthetics. 16th century style manor, England, suave characters. It’s set up to be great, where it lacks though is the first half is super boring. The second half is really good from the dinner scene on where she discovers they’re vampires. It’s just the lead up is so dull. If they had a better lead up it would be a high scoring movie, but where it is it just makes it okay to good. I give it a 6/10.
