A lonely teenager mourning the loss of her twin sister falls prey to an unseen spirit with parasitic abilities after befriending three strange new friends that have a strong fascination with the occult. Haunted by dream-like visions of blood and death, she must confront her personal demons and find the vampire before it is too late.

After crying herself to sleep at an eerily disturbing funeral, Mel becomes prey to an angry witch bound to protect the cemetery from intruders. With no place left to turn, she escapes into the depths of a dark forest only to stumble upon three friends that have a strange fascination with the occult. She falls in love with one of them, Tim, but realizes that she must confront her own demons and master her newfound ability to see faded memories through physical contact before their relationship can work out.

Meanwhile, Bryan, a Goth obsessed with the vampire subculture, discovers that while they were in the woods, they accidentally invited a malevolent spirit with parasitic abilities into our world. One by one, everyone close to Mel falls prey to this new kind of vampire, and Mel starts to believe that her psychic visions are leading her to the next victim. But when she finds pictures of bloody female bodies hidden under one of her new friend's beds, she's in for the surprise of her life.

The Invitation, written by Daniel J. Pelletier and myself, is a psychological horror drama that reinvents the classic vampire story and combines it with a realistic story to which anybody can relate.
