Evil doesn’t span eternity without a little help.
In this modern monster tale of Dracula’s loyal servant, Emmy nominee Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road, X-Men franchise) stars as Renfield, the tortured aide to history’s most narcissistic boss, Dracula (Oscar® winner Nicolas Cage). Renfield is forced to procure his master’s prey and do his every bidding, no matter how debased. But now, after centuries of servitude, Renfield is ready to see if there’s a life outside the shadow of The Prince of Darkness. If only he can figure out how to end his codependency.
Renfield is directed by Emmy winner Chris McKay (The Tomorrow War, The LEGO Batman Movie) from a screen story by The Walking Dead and Invincible creator Robert Kirkman and a screenplay by Ryan Ridley (Ghosted series, Rick & Morty series).
The film also stars Golden Globe winner Awkwafina (The Farewell, Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings), Emmy winner and Oscar® nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo (House of Saddam, House of Sand and Fog), Ben Schwartz (Sonic, The Afterparty), Adrian Martinez (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Focus) and Brandon Scott Jones (Ghosts, The Other Two).
Renfield is a Skybound/Giant Wildcat production, produced by Chris McKay, Samantha Nisenboim (co-producer, The Tomorrow War), Bryan Furst (Daybreakers), Sean Furst (Daybreakers), Robert Kirkman and David Alpert p.g.a. (The Walking Dead). The executive producer is Todd Lewis (unit production manager, Jason Bourne).
I really like actually how Renfield gets his power from eating critters just like how he thought he did in the books. Emphasis on thought, the man was just a looney who worshipped Dracula for some reason
A psychotic patient who was manipulated by Dracula
@Wolfyami are you asking questions or making statements?
@Victor M huh? I don’t see the correlation. Reinfield does it cause he a vampire and bugs have blood? Everything all at once was literally based on randomness to access said abilities?
“Rats, THOUSANDS of rats! All red blood, ALL red eyes, like HIS, only smaller!”
Nicolas Cage as Dracula is such great casting, I don’t understand why no one has thought of it before.
@GenoX no,no, just no. Awkafina, just no.
Because he’s a terrible actor
@Mikea James I’m dead I’m dead I’m dead.
@Sully Fox Classic
@Mikea Jamesof course he was the first Dracula of the movies
Whoever decided to make Nic Cage Dracula is a freakin genius.
At first sight he looked like Bela Lugosi !
35 years later, Nick Cage is finally a vampire.
Nichols Cage as a vampire is gold.
Method acting probably
ALl those years of him yelling out IM A VAMPIRE!!! from that movie finally paid off!
I started out thinking this movie was gonna be really cool.
I’m gonna be honest this actually looks so good…also Nicholas cage as a vampire actually suits him…the song they used is so perfect you gotta love creep by radiohead
@GameXentral he’s literally the main antagonist
@GameXentral idk, he does many small studio stuff now.
Cage makes only a handful of appearances in the film. But the trailers give the impression that he is featured more prominently.
The funniest part of this is that Cage actually looks a lot like Bela Lugosi in the costume.
@Benjamin Perez Oh shoot, my bad.
@Benjamin Perez I was gonna say, I don’t remember doc brown ever being dracula lol
Lee, not Lloyd.
I guess that was what they were going for.
I won’t lie, ‘I deserve to be happy’ is actually a really good theme for a movie and for some reason it’s not one that’s used that often
@MM it’s not a horrible saying. Yes, it was abused by people who make poor choices. But then a lot of good sayings have been abused by the wrong people like the saying “respect is earned not given” was used as an excuse for being just a plain a**hole. But that doesn’t make them horrible sayings.
It gave me ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ vibes.
I think the better term is “chasing happiness”. Everyone deserves to be happy but we’re a bottomless void and we’ll never be truly satisfied till the sweet release of death.
“I deserve to be happy” is really a not a great theme in my opinion, simply because it’s not very cinematic, by that I mean it doesn’t have a narrative action. There’s no push and pull. Some theme like “Take control of your own happiness” is better, it’s similar but there’s action going from someone who has no control over their happiness(being practically a slave and giving up control of his life to someone else) to someone who fights back and takes control.
Also, I think the theme is very saccharin for my liking. It’s very foundational, in that it doesn’t really say anything deep about an individual. But that’s just me.
For once a “cheesy movie trailer song cover” might be near as good as the original that high note was awesome! I really like all the gore and the world they created around Renfield definitely gets at that horror vibe but then Aquafina grounds it in reality too.
That’s not a cover, that’s the original. It might possibly be the acoustic version that they added backing to? But yeah-that’s Radiohead.
Aquafina is a brand of bottled water.
Isn’t it a remix of the original.
The voice sounds pretty much exactly like the original with just more reverb.
THEY GOT AQUAFINA TO PLAY THE STRAIGHT ROLE WHILE EVERYTHING ELSE IS BONKERS. this is like the first half of The Other Guys with Will Farrell playing the straight role.
I got to participate in an audience test screening for this movie a few months ago. It wasn’t the full movie, it was various scenes and we would rate how we enjoyed them, if we thought they were funny or not, etc. What I did see looked really fun and entertaining. It gave me a very “What We Do In The Shadows” type of vibe. I’m excited to see the full movie.
Nice. And thanks for the little mini review. You know how sometimes the put all the good stuff in the trailer, and then the movie sucks. It’s always a worry. This makes it sound like it might fulfill the promise of the trailer.
How do you get to be part of a test screening?
I love the look of this. Nicholas Cage always gives it 110%. In fact, he ages so annoyingly well… not sure this might be semi-biographical.
Anyway, it’s going to be added to my list of ‘Must See Films’ – and, until recently, that list has been gathering dust.
