There, Renfield discovered the 12-step self-assistance group for individuals in codependent dealings.

Writer’s Observation

This movie had every great thing going to be an amazingly fun popcorn flick and entertaining. The comedy was spotted on, the gore outcomes were all extreme and nice, and all the performances and the casting were excellent, particularly Cage, who was the best for the role. The chemistry and character with Awkwafina had been a good compliment to the character of Nicholas Hoult. But the great part of the movie was the great twist to the over-done vampire/Dracula genre. It had been a unique and a refreshing twist on the story.

All in all the top messy fun with gratuitous violence and buckets of blood and both Hoult as Renfield Cage as Dracula have an authentic master and servant relationship with superb excellent acting. The plot was not as special as this could be, but it is still nice and its moral message had been well delivered and woven between the frequent rapid paced action scenes. It has great special effects, use of music, and makeup but at times, there is a little mish-mash and there was not that much comedy to expect.
