    • Excerpt: Travis Stevens explores vampirism in a refreshing way thanks to clever writing and a committed performance from Barbara Crampton.
  • Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
    • Excerpt: Jakob’s Wife is freaky, gory, darkly funny, and, best of all, substantive.
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: Jakob’s Wife has it all. Barbara Crampton. Larry Fessenden. Priests. Vampires. Rats. Splatter. The line, “I’m going to tongue fuck a hole in your neck until I puke blood.” Concrete Blonde.
  • [New] | Jared Mobarak @ The Film Stage
    • Excerpt: What we get is therefore fun, but rarely as deep as was possible. And fun is enough as long as you know that’s all you’re getting.
  • C.H. Newell @ Father Son Holy Gore
    • Excerpt: Jakob’s Wife is all about power: who has it, who wants it, and what they do with it when they get it.

    • Excerpt: ‘JAKOB’S WIFE’ is a total vamp-camp gas with a laugh-out-loud script that’s executed to soul-sucking perfection by the combination of Barbara Crampton and Larry Fessenden. Bloody, fun, and shamelessly ridiculous, Travis Stevens has made a gleeful tribute to vampire’s enduring legacy in the horror genre and highlighted why they make for sure good comedy.
