The hilariously twisted modern-day monster tale starring Nicolas Cage and Nicholas Hoult is yours to own with Deleted Scenes and more!


Oscar Winner Nicolas Cage stars as Dracula in the side-splitting, action-packed new cult classic, Renfield. Soaked with bloody fun and overflowing with toxic relationships, Renfield comes home on digital, Blu-ray and DVD - June 6th, 2023 in a “Dracula Sucks Edition” with 60 minutes of darkly humorous and captivating never-before-seen bonus features, including deleted scenes and featurettes that dive deeper into the cutting-edge comedy and the secrets behind turning classic tale into a modern monster movie. 


Renfield features an immortal cast alongside Cage including Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road, Warm Bodies), Awkwafina (The Farewell, Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings), Ben Schwartz (Sonic the Hedgehog), Adrian Martinez (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), Shohreh Aghdashloo (House of Sand and Fog), and Brandon Scott Jones (“Ghosts”, “The Good Place”). Directed by Chris McKay (The Tomorrow War, The LEGO Batman Movie) and written by Ryan Ridley (“Rick & Morty”, “Community”) from a story by Robert Kirkman (“The Walking Dead”, “Invincible”), the edgy horror comedy is produced by Skybound Entertainment and Giant Wildcat. 


“Nicholas Hoult stars as Renfield, the tortured aide to history’s most narcissistic boss: Dracula (Nicolas Cage). For centuries, Renfield has slavishly served Dracula by procuring his master’s prey and doing his every bidding, no matter how debased. But now, Renfield is ready to look for a new life outside the shadow of The Prince of Darkness, if only he can figure out how to end the toxic, co-dependent relationship…” 


As of 06/02/23, the Rotten Tomatoes critical score sits at 58% and an audience score of 79%.
