Toilet Radio 333 – Jakob’s Wife (Feat. VHS)
The October Spooktacular continues! This week we’re joined by Mike Hochins of Canadian death metal horror punks, VHS. We’re sitting down to talk 2021 Shudder release Jakob’s Wife, which is in some ways the How Stella Got Her Groove Back of vampire flicks. Starring Barbara Crampton in the delightful titular role and featuring Larry
Fassbender Fessenden as the aforementioned Jakob, Jakob’s Wife is a tight 90-minute exploration of a small town preacher’s wife stuck in an increasingly shitty marriage – until some dang vampires come to town. If you’re looking for a horror movie that challenges your preconceptions about vampire tales, speaks frankly about aging and relationships, and offers The Man Behind The Diner from Mulholland Drive as a vampiric force of liberation, this might be the movie for you. We loved it and we had a great time discussing it. Lemme know what you think in the comments.
NEXT WEEK: We’re watching Ravenous (1999) with a very special guest – our own Rolderathis! Join us next time as the October Spooktacular continues.
Music featured on this ‘sode:
VHS – Undead Cassanova from the upcoming I Heard They Suck… Blood
