The Invitation – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack LP


Mondo is proud to present Theodore Shapiro’s soundtrack to Karyn Kusama’s haunting thriller The Invitation. The score is an integral part of the terror and darkness of the film, and it easily stands head and shoulders above the competition as a true horror score. It’s quiet yet unnerving, and altogether disquieting. If you loved the sparseness of The Witch, then The Invitation is definitely for you...but we won’t take responsibility if you spin it late at night and end up cowering in the corner.

This one time pressing is limited to 500 copies, and pressed on heavyweight colored vinyl, and featuring liner notes by director Karyn Kusama.

“THE INVITATION perfectly captures something essential about life in Los Angeles,” said composer Theodore Shapiro. “Los Angeles is a city of incredible natural beauty and utopian visions, but also a city in which dread, grief, and the curdling of those visions can often lie just underneath the surface. The score mostly functions in the film as the voice of dread, haunted memories, and grief that sits underneath the surface of a dinner party in the hills of LA. The music follows the film in its descent from uneasiness towards true terror.”

Featuring two original songs by Craig Wedren & Benjamin Newgard
