Channeling Bela Lugosi, Nicolas Cage chews all the scenery he can with some impressive fangs. But this movie (when it's working) is way more about Drac's put-upon servant Renfield (Nicholas Hoult), who befriendsa dogged New Orleans cop (Awkwafina), runs afoul of drug dealersand more importantly realizes his codependent working relationship isn't working anymore. It's a bit of a gory mess, but Cage and Hoult keep it watchable.
