The Invitation

It feels like something of a rite of passage for an actor to try their hand at a good old-fashioned horror flick, which led the conversation when we had the pleasure of interviewing Nathalie Emmanuel and Thomas Doherty for the release of The Invitation. They talk about their experiences stepping foot into this dark, mysterious landscape, and pull back the curtain on the inner mechanisms of the genre (yes, it’s beetroot juice from not real blood). We also talk about viewing Englishness from an outside perspective, and what gets them on the dance floor at a wedding…

Watch the full interview with Nathalie Emmanuel and Thomas Doherty here:


After the death of her mother and having no other known relatives, Evie takes a DNA test and discovers a long-lost cousin she never knew she had. Invited by her newfound family to a lavish wedding in the English countryside, Evie’s at first seduced by the sexy aristocratic host. However, she’s soon thrust into a nightmare of survival as she uncovers twisted secrets about her family history and the unsettling intentions behind their sinful generosity.

The Invitation is out on August 26th
