We've had an Interview With A Vampire and now it's time for Therapy for a Vampire. The new vampire flick, helmed by David Ruehm, has just released a synopsis and images ahead of its adventure to Cannes. Take a look at them below:
Vienna, early 1930′s. One fine evening, Sigmund Freud has a new patient on his couch – a mysterious count who can no longer bear the “eternally long” relationship with his wife. The vain countess incessantly complains about not being able to look at herself in a mirror, the count tells the professor. Unaware of the fact that the count and his wife are vampires, Freud introduces his mysterious patient to a younger painter, Viktor, who paints portraits that express more than a mirror ever could. While visiting the painter, the count takes an instant shine to Viktor’s girlfriend Lucy – more so than Viktor and the countess would like.
This certainly sounds infinity more interesting than the vast majority of vampire movies and shows being churned out on an industrial scale, although I think we'll have to wait a bit longer to see if the execution lives up to expectation.
Therapy for a Vampire is currently shopping for distributors ahead of arriving in Cannes. With this in mind, we won't know release details for some time.
What do you think? An interesting concept, or instantly forgettable? Let us know below.
