Renfield’s R rating is primarily due to its use of violence and gore. As a result, you will see many acts of violence throughout the film. For example, Dracula blows up a man from the inside, Renfield stabs a man with a fork, and Dracula kills a group of people very violently in a building.

Does Renfield Have Profanity?

The second reason for Renfield’s R rating is its use of profanity. The film does have wide use of profanity throughout the film. So you can expect to hear cuss words like fuck and shit. In addition, the film is expected to have over 100 uses of profanity and sexual expletives.

Does Renfield Have Alcohol, Drugs, and Smoking?

Yes, Renfield does have scenes where drugs are used. For instance, you will see cocaine in one scene. Drugs are also mentioned in the film.

Does Renfield Have Frightening and Intense Scenes?

Along with the violence and gore mentioned above, you will see shootings, stabbings, mutilations, limbs being ripped off, people being cut in half, and decapitation. You will also see internal organs and visible wounds on people. However, this is done to comedic effect but still could be too frightening or intense for some viewers.
