Well made and funny, this had the potential to be a really bad b movie, however despite having a slight made for tv feel to it the quality of the main two actors combined with a good script serves up a film well worth watching and definately one of the better shudder originals.

I guess I've not seen Barbara Crampton in a movie (that I'm aware of) before this, and I was impressed with her performance. The actor playing Jacob was a good match for her, too; they went toe-to-toe in a number of scenes, and they were GOOD. There were genuine thrills as well as black humor in this picture. I'm impressed by a comment made by awolfe42 in another member review: "The underlying themes of domestic dissatisfaction and patriarchal control are also pretty well fleshed out." Yes, I think that's a better summary than criticizing the depiction of a specific faith, which I've read in other reviews. "Jacob's Wife" was a chilling good show.

Very loose with the word comedy here on shudder but in saying that was a really cool movie, great fun.
