The Invitation

Synopsis: Will and Eden were once a loving couple. After a tragedy took their son, Eden disappeared. Two years later, out of the blue, she returns with a new husband... and as a different person, eerily changed and eager to reunite with her ex and those she left behind. Over the course of a dinner party in the house that was once his, the haunted Will is gripped by mounting evidence that Eden and her new friends have a mysterious and terrifying agenda. But can we trust Will's hold on reality? Or will he be the unwitting catalyst of the doom he senses?

How do you guys know each other?


Just friends in common, I guess.

We met in Mexico.

Sadie's staying here with

us and helping us out.


It's fun. We have fun.

Hope you don't mind me crashing the party.

It's awesome.


They've told me

so much about you.

We hit a coyote

on the way up here.

- What?

- What?

It just came out of nowhere.

I mean, there was

nothing we could do.

It was in horrible shape.

He had to kill it.

What? How did you not tell

us this, like, immediately?

You killed it with, like, what?

Tire iron.

Oh, god. What?

I don't know how you did it, man.

That's pretty butch.

No, it was a good thing.

That was mercy.


Would you mind if I looked

around for a little bit?

Of course not.

Thank you.

See you in a bit.

Can't believe it.

A tire iron requires a lot of...

- Wow.

- I know.

No, you don't. No, you don't.

No, you don't.

No. No. No!

- Will.



You scared me.

No harm done.

You're so handsome tonight.

You're shining.

And, Kira,

you're both really beautiful.

Thank you.


Could you help me

get those glasses, please?

Bars on windows are new.

Well, I was here

alone for a while.

It's security, safer.

It's nice.

Thank you.

We got them in Mexico.

Is that where you've been

for the last two years?

Some of the time.

Did you worry about me?

Did you think about me?


I did.

Well, I'm fantastic.

I've never been better.

You don't have to worry

about me anymore.

You don't find it hard

to be in this house again?

No, not at all.

It doesn't have to be.

That's what's so incredible.

You look different, Edie.

I am different.

I'm free.

All that useless pain,

it's gone.

It's something

anyone can have, will,

and I want you to have it, too.

Eden looks hot.

I can say that, right?
