As Dracula, Nicolas Cage sounds reasonable. Given his ambition to perform the parts for years as well as his talent at going all out with the roles that seem to be the exact match for this legendary figure, it's almost surprising he hasn't portrayed the vampire character. But now with Chris McKay's Renfield, he finally deserves to embark on this legendary Universal demon part.

The New Movie

In the latest scary plus comedy movie Renfield, which spotlights Nicholas Hoult as the main protagonist, Nicolas Cage portrays the legendary monster of violence, Dracula.

When Will It Release?

The eagerly awaited movie will have its big debut on March 30 now at Overlook Film Festival before actually going on general launch on April 14.

The Scary Sneak Peek

Fans also ended up getting a sneak peek at Cage's wonderfully frightening performance as he chains Hoult's Renfield to millennia of pious debt slavery in the full teaser released on Wednesday.

The Opening Sequence

In the first opening scene, a frightened-looking Hoult bows in front of Cage who declares, "I am Dracula."The bloody scenes are a part of the entire movie. Starting from the part where the Catholic priest is torn down into tiny pieces by Dracula. 

The Gap

The scenes later shown are 90 years apart. It shows Reinfield who looks malnourished and tired. Exhausted from carrying all the bodies to his master, for the delicious meal. Dracula explains the poor Reinfeild saying, “Renfield, your whole purpose in life is to serve me.”

The Climax

Renfield is shown dining alone in a darkly lit tavern, pining for a “normal life again,” throughout a brief break from the vampire. A band of hooded criminals carrying weapons storms the institution, blasting shots up into the roof as they enter.

The New Character

Rebecca Quincy, played by Awkwafina, is a cop who is involved in the burglary. But as she tries to pull a move, she was stopped by the robber who pointed the gun at her head.

The Saviour


Renfield, who is shown cowering under a desk, intends to take measures by putting an insect in between his teeth, which appears to provide him with supernatural skills.

How Did They Survive?
