She cleans. She cooks. And always stands behind her man. One might say: in his shadow. But as the minister’s wife learns that her old flame is coming to town, she lets herself be talked into a secret meeting—an encounter that will change her life forever. And not just in the way she imagined. Travis Stevens’s witty, wild horror comedy renders a vampire’s bite into the psychosexual empowerment of an unhappily married woman: the role of a lifetime for marvelous genre icon Barbara Crampton, who also served as a producer on Jakob’s Wife.
