There isn't really much on Netflix that has caught my eye at this point of the night (Midnight). I just decided to go ahead and go with this one. It has a decent cast and seems like it may be interesting. Oh well that's not a good sign. This is directed by Karyn Kusama. She has yet to make a movie I like. Aeon Flux and Jennifer's Body were just awful. Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi also wrote Aeon Flu... read more

To be honest, this movie was not really a high priority but since it was on Netflix and since it was suggested by one of my favorite listal members, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, it turned out to be a nice watch and I was above all surprised by how much it resembled 'Get Out', so far one of the biggest critical success released in 2017. Well, even though I did like 'Get Out', to be... read more

Un triller/drama que pasa una hora de su duración para armar lo que sería un desarollo lento, pero apropiado para una solida, inquietante y simple experiencia sobre una reunión muy sospechosa; al menos, es para experimentarla una vez.

The Invitation (Review in Spanish)

“Ideas interesantes con personajes,que podrían dar para una historia de superación o un viaje donde deben afrontar los dolores pasados. Lastima que se vaya por el camino del terror con un pacing lentísimo que no ayuda a desenvolver el misterio (Una junta de amigos donde algunos actúan extraño y parecen sacados de una secta) porque al estirar una escena por tanto tiempo sin agregar elementos que ayuden a la tensión, lo único que tenés es algo aburrido. Copado como juega con la iluminación o planos para alertar los peligros o como, a veces, logra crear incertidumbre de varios escenarios que dejan a la imaginación porque estamos viendo todo desde el punto de vista de un protagonista con problemas. Una cagada que al final todo se vaya a la mierda y se vuelva un survival donde la sangr” read more

Nowadays, most people starts to have kids at around 30-35 years old. I was a step-father at 23 years old and got a baby at 26 years old and when I would go to the kindergarten, I was always be by far

Glad you found it worth watching, even if you didn't appreciate it as deeply as I did. Interesting that you felt the main character seemed too young to have gone through what he had prior to the event

“To be honest, this movie was not really a high priority but since it was on Netflix and since it was suggested by one of my favorite listal members, I thought I might as well check it out.

Well, even though I did like 'Get Out', to be honest,  it didn't really blow me away though and, in fact, I thought that this movie was actually slightly better even if it was apparently barely seen when it was released. Indeed, I really enjoyed how ambiguous they managed to keep the whole thing and, as long as it remained so ambiguous, it was really quite captivating. Unfortunately, as soon as the truth was revealed, the whole thing went i” read more

30 Favorite Films of 2016 (30 movies items)

"I love good slowburn, and Karyn Kusama's The Invitation is one of the best I've seen. Kusama slowly but surely ratchets up the tension and paranoia before bursting it in the third act. It all leads to one of the best final shots of 2016, the implications of it made my jaw drop, and added a completely new layer to the film. Beyond the effective suspense, though, is an emotional core felt throughout that increases the films depth even more. The Invitation is one of the best thrillers of last 2016."

"Kauhukuukauden avauselokuva ei ole kauhua. Hyvä leffa tämä The Invitation silti on. Tiiviiseen ympäristöön sijoittuva tarina on kirjaimellisesti kulttileffa. Homma kiristyy näppärästi loppua kohden ja ne ihan viimeiset kuvat ovat aika vakuuttavia."
