Therapy for a Vampire

Critics Consensus

Therapy for a Vampire should get a few chuckles out of vampire movie fans in search of something new, even if it never quite lives up to its daffy potential.

Critic Reviews for Therapy for a Vampire (Der Vampir auf der Couch)

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (18) | Rotten (11)

  • Dracula meets Sigmund Freud in this Austrian horror farce, which benefits from a polished production but exhausts its premise about halfway through.

    July 21, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Ruhm incorporates classic Hammer Films and "Love at First Bite" in this entertaining vampire spoof by keeping the pacing brisk, the jokes quick and the blood gushing.

    June 30, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Rühm has an ear for the absurd that reminds one of Monty Python. But his humor is as dry as they come - Therapy for a Vampire elicits ironic smiles, not belly laughs.

    June 24, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Rühm shows the right light touch for the material as it veers from psychological parody to romantic mixup comedy to campy horror, and his painterly depiction of Vienna is a marvel, so it's not really such a bother when things fizzle at the finale.

    June 23, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • "Therapy for a Vampire" has nothing to say. It just has stuff happening, none of it repulsive and all of it performed by competent actors, but that's just not enough.

    June 22, 2016 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It aims to be laugh-out-loud hilarious but never rises above a few wan chuckles.
