A Defanged Twist On Dracula

The wedding is being held on a large plot of land, and that is where Evie will be staying as well. This place is owned by the extremely handsome Walter DeVille – understoodalike Devil?! Ghostly! Personally, I would call him Walter Dracula, but I am not the person who made this movie. Anyway, Walter Dracula, played by the powerful actor Thomas Doherty, was charming and sexy, and he shoved Evie off her feet pretty quickly. Of course, at this point, the audience is screaming at Evie that her life is in danger. Too bad she’s slow to catch up.

Sometimes, “The Invitation” seems to mean “Get Out.” Evie had left home for a strange place; a place where she was the only Negro surrounded by white people who were too pleasant, but a little mean – one of them even reached out and touched her hair. And an evil butler looks at her with nothing but contempt. The racial elements are not to be underestimated throughout the film – there’s a lot of talk about Evie’s low social status – but “The Invitation” eventually allows this uncomfortable angle to give way to Some fight scenes are quite silent.

One also can’t help but think of “Ready or Not,” another horror movie about a weekend wedding that went very, very wrong. If “The Invitation” even has a flash of electrical energy running through that movie, it could be related to something. Sadly, the movie barely looks good. There are long stretches of absolutely nothing that can effectively affect any of the torpedo’s dynamics. The pacing is not the strong point of this movie.

All of this is unfortunate, because “The Invitation” has an overall successful macabre atmosphere, enhanced by some truly brilliant staging designs that transform the sprawling mansion into a something like Disney’s Haunted Mansion or Guillermo del Toro’s “Crimson Peak”. And Autumn Eakin’s fuzzy cinematography just elevates things. Sadly, sometimes it also darkness – more than a few scenes are obscured in the dark; the shadows appear to have been enhanced to shield any graphic scenes and render PG-13 rated “The Invitation” disparaging.
