Directed by Chris McKay, with a screenplay by Ryan Ridley, Renfield is a campy, modern-day horror comedy inspired by characters from Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel Dracula. Nicholas Hoult stars as a Renfield, a mild-mannered man who’s had it up to here with his abusive, manipulative boss. It just so happens that his boss is Dracula, the iconic vampire from Transylvania.
Renfield finds comfort in a support group for people in abusive relationships and is empowered to cut himself off from Dracula, who, in addition to being a blood-sucking murderer, is a textbook narcissist. Things get complicated when the mafia stumbles upon Dracula’s lair, and Renfield must team up with the city’s only good cop, Awkwafina, to save the day.
It’s a silly, funny, 90-minute romp of a movie, and it’s perfect to watch on your couch for a night in. Even better? It’s coming to Peacock very soon. Here’s what you need to know about how to watch Renfield on streaming.
