The Film Flamers: A Horror Movie Podcast

The Film Flamers is a podcast devoted to horror movies (or horror adjacent), with a little comedy tossed in! From classics to new favorites to camp, no horror movie is safe from dissection and laughs.

The Invitation (2015)

January 20th, 2020

Listeners, you are cordially invited to our totally non-culty, completely non-creepy dinner party where we will deep dive into Karyn Kusama's criminally under-watched horror thriller film, The Invitation. The film stars Logan Marshall-Green, Tammy Blanchard, Michiel Huisman, and John Carroll Lynch. If you haven't seen this one yet, consider doing so before listening, as this episode may spoil your appetite at the party... and we wouldn't want that. So once you're ready, grab a glass of wine and settle in - cause this one's not to be missed!
