THERAPY FOR A VAMPIRE REVIEWED
“Therapy For A Vampire” posits what if random European vampire met with Freud. Easy sight gags are had, alongside some cheap period jokes. It’s a funny enough Austrian movie that dodges issues of World War II and vampire lore to tell a contained story. Basically, this nondescript Count is having midlife sexual issues. He wants younger mortal women and he hates his wife’s obsession with her lack of reflection. Penis jokes also slip into the mix.
For those of you that couldn’t keep up with “A Dangerous Method”, this will be for you. Not every movie needs to be a heavy trip, but I expected something that felt slightly more mature. Comedy in that sense works weird. While this plays rather old-fashioned, many might see it as hokey. I’m not quite sure where I fall in that grand scheme. But, it was worth a stream.
