Critic Reviews:

Director Travis Stevens is clearly versed enough in the conventions of splatterfest to know how to deliver the grossout scenes and the one-liners needed to make them palatable. On that level, Jakob’s Wife is pretty standard...

"Jakob’s Wife" feels strangely anemic, which, as we all know is more fatal to the already iron-deficient movie vampire than garlic, holy water and sunshine combined.

...there is a genuinely great concept at the front of Jakob’s Wife, but the intentionally bad dialogue at times and over-the-top gore feels like it’s doing a disservice to the themes. The balancing is not necessarily effective here, but it is ambitious screwball horror craziness.
