Universal City, California, May 2, 2023 – Continuing its nationwide run in theaters, the modern monster tale starring Oscar® winner Nicolas Cage as Dracula, RENFIELD is now available to buy or rent at home on digital platforms nationwide from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
Packed with dark humor, toxic relationships, and lots of blood, RENFIELD showcases an all-star cast alongside Cage including Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road, X-Men franchise), Awkwafina (The Farewell, Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings), Ben Schwartz (“Parks and Recreation”, “House of Lies”), Adrian Martinez (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, iGilbert), Shohreh Aghdashloo (House of Sand and Fog, “House of Saddam”), and Brandon Scott Jones (“Ghosts”, “The Good Place”).

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, codependent relationship…
