Renfield, Dracula's loyal servant, seeks to end their codependency and find a life outside the shadow of The Prince of Darkness.


Why watch this film?

Of all the monsters of cinema, Dracula is perhaps the most iconic and monolithic, with countless representations on screen. That's why Renfield: Vampire's Assistant is already refreshing just for the sake of telling a story focused on its namesake servant (Nicholas Hoult), who has been subjected to the vampire for decades and, in the 21st century, finally decides to break away from their abusive relationship. The premise is very funny, but the script veers off into crime thriller and superhero action with little consistency, so it ends up losing some of its charm. However, Nicolas Cage is simply phenomenal as Dracula and there are plenty of references to classic representations of the character. If you're a fan of monsters, the character or the actor, you'll definitely enjoy it.
