Critic Reviews for Jakob's Wife

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (32) | Rotten (6)

  • Travis Stevens is psychologically astute, until it gives itself over to turning subtext into extremely legible text.

    April 10, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Its silliness often undermines its exploration of themes and clever gender-swapping. Moreover, it lacks a clear identity; there are two warring movies at play. Still, Crampton fully unleashed will be more than enough to please the midnight crowd.

    March 22, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Stevens mostly compensates for weaknesses in the dialogue by shifting among the film's wildly divergent tones, but this is Crampton's movie through and through.

    March 22, 2021 | Full Review…
  • In the end, Jakob's Wife doesn't deliver on the promise of the premise.

    March 20, 2021 | Full Review…
  • A thin, half-hearted reworking of the vampire mythos that can't quite decide if it's spoofy or serious, and doesn't have the smarts to be both.

    March 18, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Jakob's Wife is a new installment into great vampire horror movies, a breakthrough film for the directing of Travis Stevens, and a spectacular highlight performance for Barbara Crampton.
