This week on End Credits, we want to suck… [turns page] Your blood! Who doesn’t love a good vampire movie, especially when the story ais centred around the greatest and most famous vampire of all time. So on this episode, we’re going to talk about Dracula’s latest in the horror-comedy Renfield, and also talk about some of Dracula’s greatest hits!
This Wednesday, April 19, at 3 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Candice Lepage will discuss:
Too Many Draculas! There are two characters that have been in more movies than any other, one is Sherlock Holmes and the other is Count Dracula. Yet another Dracula is the [co-] star of this week’s film, but to begin with we’re going to countdown some of the other Draculas. From the classic portrayal in 1931, to an even more classic portrayal from the silent era, and then more recent efforts with actors of every sort, we’ll count off (heh) the best Draculas.
REVIEW: Renfield (2023). Being Dracula is easy, but being the guy that lures Dracula’s victims to a blood curdling doom and then cleaning up the mess is hard. This is the premise of Renfield, in which Nicholas Hoult plays the long put-upon minion of the dark prince, while Nicolas Cage plays the most famous vampire of all-time. Transplanted from Europe to New Orleans, and time-shifted from the Victoria Age to modern day, does this horror-comedy raise Dracula from the pop culture grave or is it merely just the walking dead?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 3 pm.
