Renfield

What to Know

Critics Consensus

Although it fails to take full advantage of its committed stars and killer premise, Renfield's batty horror-comedy blend sinks in just enough to leave an impression.

Audience Says

You'll enjoy Renfield more if you're ready for a lot of campy humor -- but why else would you be watching a Nicolas Cage vampire movie?

Renfield | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Wenlei Ma News.com.au There’s a spicier, punchier and sillier movie trapped inside. Shame it couldn’t be coaxed out. Rated: 2.5/5 Jun 16, 2023 Full Review Renfield | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Philip Kemp Sight & Sound Renfield is played for laughs – though with no shortage of blood and violence. Jun 8, 2023 Full Review Renfield | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Jake Wilson The Age (Australia) The main attraction is Nicolas Cage’s barnstorming performance as Dracula, played mainly for laughs yet indicating careful study of his many predecessors in the role. Rated: 3/5 May 25, 2023 Full Review Renfield | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Zach Youngs InSession Film Renfield wants to be cool and it wants us to think it's cool, different, and edgy, but it fails. There's a reason Dracula has endured and why we haven't felt the need to be familiar with Renfield before. Rated: D Jul 3, 2024 Full Review Renfield | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Sarah Vincent Sarah G Vincent Views “Renfield,” the brainchild of The Walking Dead’s Robert Kirkman, is a delight and super cute. The casting director is brilliant to cast Hoult May 25, 2024 Full Review Renfield | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Derek Sante KSNV (Las Vegas) Filled with laughs and so much blood, this film crosses many lines. Just plain bloody fun, gets a B grade from me. Rated: B Nov 13, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

Joseph I came for Nicholas Cage and was not disappointed. He played an amazing Dracula in the modern world. That being said if you aren’t a fan of Nicholas cage I’d rate the movie somewhere between 3 and 4 stars but if you are I highly recommend it. Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/28/24 Full Review Maurice Aquafina was not funny in this and the ending was too silly for my tastes. It could have lean more into the horror. Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/09/23 Full Review Lori A Z it was alright--a bit unique Rated 3/5 Stars • Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/12/23 Full Review Michael Loved the whole movie!
