Fellow Movie Goers: What a blast, Cage makes a fun and funny Dracula!

Here’s the premise:  Renfield (Nicholas Hoult) decides to leave his centuries-long line of work as a henchman and familiar to Count Dracula (Nicolas Cage) and finds a new lease on life in modern day New Orleans when he falls in love with a feisty but perennially aggressive traffic cop named Rebecca Quincy (Awkwafina).

From the very beginning when you see Renfield in a codependency support group, it sets the stage for a very funny movie. It was great that the humor did not let up, the movie stayed consistently funny while also having plenty of action and blood.

Nicholas Hoult played Renfield perfectly, with the regret of all he did for a boss that did not care and the longing for a more fulfilling life, Hoult delivered near perfection. There is also Nicolas Cage, who was born to play this version of Dracula; intense, campy, and freakish, Cage is fantastic!!

The story is awesome and refreshing, from the dialog to the action, it was a very fun and satisfying movie. If you like Dracula in any way (especially humorous) then go watch Renfield.
