SHUDDER, the streaming service for horror, thrillers and the supernatural, has announced that festival hit Jakob’s Wife will stream exclusively on Shudder from 19 August 2021.
Director and co-writer Travis Stevens (Girl on the Third Floor) and co-producer Barbara Crampton bring a contemporary, insightful and darkly comic reinterpretation of the classic vampire movie theme in this story of a dull, comfortable marriage which suddenly receives a sharp-fanged jolt.
Anne is in her late 50s and feels like her life and marriage have been shrinking over the past thirty years. Through a chance encounter with a stranger, she discovers a new sense of power and an appetite to live bigger and bolder than before. However, these changes come with a toll on her marriage and a heavy body count.
Starring horror icon Barbara Crampton (You’re Next) alongside genre legend Larry Fessenden (The Dead Don’t Die), Bonnie Aarons (The Nun), Nyisha Bell (Holla), Mark Kelly (Fear the Walking Dead), Sarah Lind (The Exorcism of Molly Hartley), Robert Rusler (Weird Science), and Phil Brooks aka CM Punk (Girl on the Third Floor).
