Taiwanese slasher horror. Five young friends - two men and three women - are surprised and pleased to receive an invitation to an exclusive party intended only for the very rich and famous elite. On arrival, however, their fantasies of a lavish and luxurious evening turn to terror when they find themselves locked inside the building and systematically hunted down. The party turns out to be an elaborate and horrific killing game in which they are the tortured victims and the idle rich audience the sadistic spectators.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Slasher / Gore Film 19 Feb 2011
By CBH
Format:DVD
This film is more of a slasher than a horror, its main focus is the gore. The synopsis given on this page is fairly poor and I wouldn't say it really sums up this film well!

After a quick background of how the main character gets an invitation to an exclusive party, he quickly meets several other "new members" of this select guest list. You quickly find out that each of them is pretending to be someone else to get into the party, and that they have been allowed entry as the entertainment rather than as guests. I wont say much more about the story (ill let you find that out yourself!), but the film them quickly starts off into a very well done gore filled movie.

The movie is very well done, with an actually good story and better than normal gore. The acting is good throughout and the scenes very well done. The only downsides of this movie are the few random nonessential scenes and the odd plot holes that crop up.

Overall this is definitely worth buying as a good slasher / gore film, but not really worth buying if thats not what your looking for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kill The Poor 27 Oct 2010
By Mr. Jonathon T. Beckett TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
!!!WARNING. MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!

Wade Chen(Bryant Chang) struggles to hold down his job driving rich executives round town. He catches company President Yang(Jerry Huang) having sex with a famous magazine model in the back of the car, but Yang tells him everything is good and to buy his silence, Yang gives Wade an invitation to an exclusive party. The back of the invitation card invites the guest to write down their greatest wish.
Wade cannot believe his luck when he arrives at the party. Not only does he get lucky with the very same magazine model that he caught Yang with, he also wins big on the roulette wheel and finds out he's one of five inductees who have been granted membership into the mysterious Mr Warren's circle. All five are taken to one side and told their greatest wishes are about to come true. It soon becomes apparent however, that the five unsuspecting guests are part of someone elses twisted wish fulfilment fantasy,as one by one they are hunted down by a masked killer.
This slick and twisted Taiwanese slasher does take a little while to get going but once it does it stays in first gear for the rest of its duration. Lulling viewers into a false sense of security, at the half hour mark it suddenly presents its audience with a brutal slaying and from then on things get very bloody indeed, with a couple of quite extreme set pieces that made me wince a little.
Okay, the film is hardly original, taking its inspiration from Western horrors such as Hostel, Vacancy and the Saw fanchise. It does, however, have enough wit and invention of its own to sustain interest.
Bryant Chang is very likeable as the male lead, the character of Wade finding hidden strengths in the terrible situation he finds himself in.

A party to remember for the rest of their of lives... Ordinary young men and women often dream of the unreachable life of the world's idle rich. Wade, Richard, Hitomi, Holly and Lin certainly do. They have all received an invitation to an exclusive party held by a group of rich & famous people, obviously addressed to them by mistake. But all the same, they attend. It is the best party ever, a wishing game takes place where their deepest desires materialize. But when they find Richard's body brutally killed, the wishing game turns into a killing game in which they are the tortured victims and a rich audience the sadistic spectators. To escape from the party and survive is now their only dream. WHAT CAN I SAY ?
This is a very cool horror thriller with a great story,
it copies films like Hostel and Saw and adds a splash of other films like scream.
The cast is very good and the budget of a good standard too,
The suspense is good, there's a lot of nailing biting moments before the kills begin,
the scene is set and the tension builds.
The story keeps you guessing,
and make you wondering exactly what's going to happen next .
The film is filled with blood and terror and gore,
your nerves are pushed to edge throughout this film ...
but their is a catch?
you can only watch this film ?

4.0 out of 5 stars Sorry, I'm busy that night! 7 Jun 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
You'll never view an invitation in the same way after this all action Taiwanese gore-fest!

'Invitation Only' isn't a classic but I've seen it twice now and really enjoyed it on both occasions (the second time I posed as a human-hiding cushion for someone far less hardened to horror than me!)

Gore, blood and plenty of cringes are the main ingrediants of this decent J Horror offering. The acting looks iffy and at times it gets a little confusing as the dialogue switches from English to Mandarin and back again.

There is also a cracking line (maybe scripted, maybe a dodgy subtitle translation) which really made me chuckle. One of the characters says (rather impatiently) "Hey, come on, what's the matter" to a her bawling accomplice. This comes after the body parts of a dismembered party goer have just been found!!

"I've got a touch of toothache" was the pick of our sarcastic living room responses!

I'm being picky though and if it's an enjoyable splatterfest your after then 'Invitation Only' delivers the goods. It wouldn't be for me all the time, but in fairness the plot is solid, the storyline quite original and the pace fast-moving. There's a little twist thrown in for good measure and the SFX are highly applaudable; no CGI here, just buckets of blood and some pretty near-the-mark 'ouch' moments.

For fans of this type of horror 'Invitation Only' is a definite. RSVP now and accept!
