Do you love horror, vampires, and film legend Nicolas Cage? Then Renfield is the movie for you!
The new horror-comedy stars Cage as the world’s best-known vampire, Dracula, who suddenly has to deal with the fact that his long-time servant wants out of their toxic relationship. (He doesn’t take it well.)
We sat down with Cage to discuss his unique take on the iconic vampire, his favorite gory supernatural action sequences, and which of his previous roles he thinks might have a chance fighting Dracula.
Check out our full interview with the Renfield star below:
Evil doesn’t span eternity without a little help.
In this modern monster tale of Dracula’s loyal servant, 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, he’s 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 comes from director Chris McKay (LEGO Batman Movie). Ryan Ridley (Ghosted) wrote the screenplay based on an original idea by Robert Kirkman (TWD, Invincible).
In addition to Hoult and Cage, the film also stars Awkwafina, Ben Schwartz, and Adrian Martinez.
