‘Renfield’ With Nicolas Cage Hits Blu-Ray And Digital In June


Renfield, starring Nicholas Cage and Nicholas Hoult, hits Blu-ray and Digital June 6 via Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. The “Dracula Sucks” Edition (love that moniker!) features over 60 minutes of never before seen content.

Nicholas Hoult plays the titular character in Renfield, a loyal worker whose boss is none other than Dracula (Nicolas Cage). Renfield finds his master’s prey and follows his orders to the book, and this job has lasted for centuries. Now he wants to break out from The Prince of Darkness’ shadow. That, however, is not an easy task.
