🩸🩸🩸🩸 out of 🩸🩸🩸🩸🩸 for copious amounts of bloodshed, dismemberments, beheadings, exploding bodies, the use of severed limbs as weapons, and eviscerations.
The Dracula tale has never been more fun to watch than in Chris McKay's Renfield. Nicholas Hoult is the remorseful and downtrodden manservant Renfield who struggles with how to escape servitude from his vile master. Nic Cage is perfectly cast as the dapper and ferocious Count Dracula, mixing a looming malevolence with goofy charm. Universal has found its footing again with its legendary roster of monster films. Renfield mixes full-theater belly laughs with spectacular gory action to create a movie destined to get repeat viewings. Bela Lugosi and Christopher Lee would be proud.
