Jakob's Wife is a bloody good time and it's premiering exclusively on Shudder August 19, 2021. Anne (Crampton), is the titular church mouse wife of small-town minister Jakob. Upon meeting "The Master", something awakens within her and Anne finds a voracious new appetite for life. This new way of life is at odds with the old, and that creates some... conflict for Jakob (Fessenden) and his wife. Jakob's Wife gives us an adult-centric story, (horror all grown up if you will); a theme explored in-depth earlier this year by Phil Nobile Jr.
The film was directed by Travis Stevens (Girl on the Third Floor) who co-wrote the film alongside Mark Steensland (The Special) and Kathy Charles (Castle Freak). JAKOB’S WIFE stars Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, You're Next), Larry Fessenden (Habit, Stake Land), Nyisha Bell (Coming 2 America), Mark Kelly (The Hot Zone), Sarah Lind (Wolfcop), Robert Rusler (A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge, Vamp), Bonnie Aarons (The Nun, The Conjuring 2) and former WWE wrestler, Phil Brooks, aka CM Punk (Girl on the Third Floor).
