Fangs, Nic! This Final ‘Renfield’ Trailer is Beyond
We aren’t sure what to make of the upcoming movie Renfield, but after watching this final trailer, we are definitely interested. Although it’s coming across as a straight-up comedy, the movie isn’t light on blood according to the latest, and final, trailer.
When you watch it, the zingers and (CGI) blood fly, but there also seems to be some inspiration and romance at the heart of the story. Not between Dracula and his titular assistant (that would be interesting), but between Renfield and a cop named Rebecca Quincy (Awkwafina).
Horror movies with a comedic edge are becoming very popular this year. First, we had the hilarious and often brutal Cocaine Bear and soon we are getting the saliently self-aware African American film The Blackening which pokes fun at POC horror tropes: their tagline is “We can’t all die first.” Then there was Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey, but was that a comedy, or just “funny.”
It still remains to be seen if Renfield is Mel Brooks funny or Edgar Wright funny.
Either way, Renfied looks like it’s going to be a good time with Nic Cage being his usual campy self. It’s currently making the festival rounds now but will be released theatrically on April 14.
Renfield is directed by Chris McKay (The Tomorrow War, and Lego Batman Movie) and stars Nicolas Cage, Nichoals Hoult with co-stars Awkwafina, Ben Schwartz, Adrian Martinez, and Shohreh Aghdashloo.
In this modern monster tale of Dracula’s loyal servant, Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road, X-Men) stars at Renfield, the tortured aid 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, Renfiedl 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.
