Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Despite a very likable lead and a refreshingly light touch, The Invitation is ultimately too predictable to thrill as either a romance or a horror story.

Thriller about vampires has lots of blood but doesn't suck.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Invitation is a female-centric vampire film from writer-director Jessica M. Thompson. Through the eyes of Evie (Nathalie Emmanuel), viewers are able to see how women often feel like prey, unsure who among them may be a predator. There are moments of intense violence, including bloody wounds, a person on fire, and one explicit slice that's intended to spur a strong reaction. A death by suicide is positioned as a heroic choice. Sex is implied through close-ups of kissing, and a woman's bare backside is shown from afar. Expect some language ("ass," "s--t," and one use of "f--k") and drinking, too. While peril is high for the characters, so is courage. And when Evie's clichéd romantic fantasies seem to be coming true, she -- along with many viewers -- actively questions them: Can we allow ourselves to give in and enjoy the moment? Or should we know that if something looks too good to be true, it probably is?
