Review: In ‘Therapy for a Vampire,’ the Count Really Wants to Change

The title of the Austrian movie “Therapy for a Vampire” sounds like the setup for a joke or an unlikely self-help book. It’s a promising title given that Sigmund Freud treated a patient whom he called the Wolf Man, a constipated Russian aristocrat who dreamed of white wolves. It’s promising, too, given Freud’s writings on the uncanny, the return of the repressed and what he called our “our unmistakable tendency to push death aside.”
