Writer/director David Rühm's German-language Swiss/Austrian production THERAPY FOR A VAMPIRE (a.k.a. DER VAMPIR AUF DER COUCH) has been making the festival rounds since late 2014, but it will finally be receiving a proper release in the United States this month.

Music Box Films will be releasing the horror/comedy into theatres in New York and Los Angeles tomorrow, June 10th, with the movie set to reach more screens across the country throughout June and July. The list of theatres that have booked THERAPY FOR A VAMPIRE can be seen on MusicBoxFilms.com.

The film's synopsis: 

Vienna, 1932. Count von Kozsnom has lost his thirst for life, and his marriage cooled centuries ago. Fortunately, Sigmund Freud is accepting new patients; the good doctor suggests the Count appease his vain wife by commissioning a portrait of her by his assistant, Viktor. But it’s Viktor’s headstrong girlfriend Lucy who most intrigues the Count, convinced she’s the reincarnation of his one true love. Soon, the whole crowd is a hilarious mess of mistaken identities and misplaced affections in this send-up of the vampire genre, proving that 500 years of marriage is enough.

Tobias Moretti, Jeanette Hain, Cornelia Ivancan, Dominic Oley, David Bennent, Karl Fischer, Erni Mangold, Lars Rudolph, and Anatole Taubman star.

The trailer for THERAPY FOR A VAMPIRE can be seen below, and it looks to be a stylish film that provides some silly fun.
