Although Thompson has only directed one previous feature film, The Invitation’s star-studded cast, led by Game of Thrones’ Emmanuel, hints that the script was attractive enough for them to sign on. Hopefully, this means the film will able to deliver a fresh take on a premise that is reminiscent of several other horror films, like Get Out and Ready or Not. Viewers will have to see whether The Invitation is able to deliver as much fright as the trailer promises when it hits theaters on August 26.
