Horror comedy directed by Chris McKay. Renfield (2023) centers on Renfield (Nicholas Hoult), the tortured aide to history’s most narcissistic boss, Dracula (Nicolas Cage), who decides to leave his centuries-long line of work as a henchman 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).
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.

Rebecca Quincy: [to Renfield] I don’t think you’re such a bad guy. But you’re never really going to be free until you face him.
Mark: Renfield, this is codependency one-o-one. A narcissist will take full advantage of a codependent’s low self-esteem. But you’re the one with the real power. And all you got to do is take it back.
Renfield: How do I do that?
Mark: Focus on your needs.
Renfield: I mean, I just haven’t thought about any of my needs in years.
Mark: But if you were to stop focusing on his needs, what would happen? Yeah. What would happen? Stop focusing on his needs. What would happen?
Renfield: He won’t grow to full power.

Trevante: Renfield’s boss!
Dracula: I am Dracula
Mark: Okay. Obviously we’re dealing with a little bit more than just narcissism here.
Renfield: I will no longer tolerate abuse. I deserve happiness.
Dracula: Let me explain something to you, okay? You deserve only suffering!
Dracula: [to Renfield] I will unleash an army of death. Everyone you care about will suffer because you betrayed me.
