This weekend sees the release of The Invitation, Karyn Kusama's unnerving indie about a dinner party gone horribly wrong. To celebrate the release, Kusama, who rose to prominence after her breakout movie Girlfight, is this month's guest curator for Shudder, a streaming service whose only goal is to scare the living crap out of you. Led by curators Colin Geddes, a prominent film aficionado and historian, and Sam Zimmerman, a horror expert, the service offers viewers "a variety of films that span all decades and subgenres of horror in detailed collections. Kusama is the latest filmmaker to curate her collection, and you can click through the following slideshow to find out which films she chose and why she chose them.
