How to watch Renfield

So you think your boss is a narcissistic douchebag? R.M. Renfield has you beat. Imagine if, in addition to enduring lies and gaslighting and horrible work/life balance, your boss also wanted you to facilitate and cover up his misdeeds—and for no extra money! You would, however, get perks (super-strength and super-speed) but you have to eat bugs first. (There’s always a catch, huh?) Also, the bossman might crash your group therapy sessions.

That’s all we know about the film ‘cause we also waited to stream Renfield on Peacock instead of going to a theater. But we’re looking forward to the film tonight because we crave a weird Nicolas Cage movie like Dracula does blood.

Weird is where it’s at

Do you like weird movies even if Nicolas Cage isn’t in ‘em? Check out these guides:

Recommended weird Nicholas Cage movies

Nicolas Cage’s filmography is deep and—thanks to his massive talent, unique mannerisms, speech cadences, and (if you believe internet gossip) financial troubles—stacked with oddities. These are only some of our favorite weird Nicholas Cage movies and where you can watch them.

1. Vampire’s Kiss (1988) | Horror comedy

A flop at the box office but a cult favorite on home video, the 1988 horror-comedy Vampire’s Kiss is some top-shelf Cage wackiness.

Cage plays hard-partying, womanizing literary agent Peter Loew. When a bat gets into his house, it triggers a mental breakdown where Loew imagines a one-night stand gives him the VD (vampire disease).

Loew’s ensuing odd behavior—becoming even more abusive to his secretary Alva, wearing plastic fangs, and popping off highly quotable lines—is a treat for Cage fans, which is why Vampire’s Kiss has a cult following.

2. Mandy (1988) | Action horror

Panos Cosmatos’ Coffin Joe-meets-Five Easy Pieces fever dream is weird even without Cage. It’s so strange, in fact, that despite a 90% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes, it has only a 67% audience score.

Now direct your attention to the picture (left). Nobody does crazy eyes like Nicolas Cage, and that’s all you need to know about how the actor enhances Cosmatos’ film.

Add in a disconcertingly browless Andrea Riseborough as Cage’s titular girlfriend—who he must rescue from an acid-addled cult—and you can see why Mandy is a wonderfully WTF hellride.

3. Willy’s Wonderland (2021) | Horror comedy

Willy’s Wonderland” sounds like a vintage ’70s porno, but it’s just a rehashing of the video game Five Nights at Freddy’s, which (for the uninitiated) is also a long night at Chuck E. Cheese.

So, again, we’ve got a weird, wild premise plus Nicolas Cage—who says absolutely nothing throughout the entire film while kicking the asses of animatronic animals possessed by a cannibal killer and his like-minded associates.

Now you see why we think Willy’s Wonderland is as delicious as Chuck E. Cheese pizza is disgusting.

4. Left Behind (2014) | Religious thriller

Why did Nicolas Cage do an evangelical Christian movie? If the hot gossip about his financial woes is true, he may have turned to Jesus. Or it was just a payday.

Now to the fundamental question: Is Nicolas Cage in Left Behind (2014) weirder than the 2000 original with Kirk Cameron? Well, Cameron’s a true believer, and the truth is stranger than fiction. But we’re talking about Nicolas Cage in a story about Jesus stealing the faithful from Earth while leaving the non-believers to endure the Tribulation. And Cage plays it straight, which is weird fo sho.

5. The Wicker Man (2006) | Folk horror

Nicolas Cage screams in pain as bees pour onto his face in The Wicker Man

The original 1973 film The Wicker Man is a masterpiece of folk horror, highly regarded among film critics. So, of course, it needed a ‘Murican remake—with Nicolas Effin’ Cage.

The widely panned Neil LaBute-directed retread earned only a 15% score on Rotten Tomatoes and prompted Cage to claim the film was actually an absurdist comedy. And The Wicker Man (2006) is funny, but only unintentionally—which, to us, is fantastic.

And now, we quote the meme: “NOT THE BEES!”
