Evil lurks onboard in the first U.S Trailer for The Last Voyage of the Demeter.
Universal Pictures unleash the first promo for the film based around the chapter that brings Bram Stoker‘s iconic character, Dracula to UK. Directed by André Øvredal (Scary Stories To Tell in the Dark, Trollhunter), starring Corey Hawkins is Clemens, the ship’s doctor. Aisling Franciosi as an unwitting stowaway, Liam Cunningham as the ship’s captain and David Dastmalchian as the Demeter’s first mate.
In Stoker’s novel the Demeter cargo ship was originally a Russian crew. Chartered by Dracula himself heading towards England with the crew unaware who is onboard. When strange things start to happen, the crew find themselves fighting for survival.
Perfect time to release this trailer with the upcoming release of Renfield. That maybe a comedy horror, it’s also involving Dracula this time is all about the legend born. This looks pretty solid, good move to have know cast, rather a major stand out cast…
Based on a single chilling chapter from Bram Stoker’s classic novel Dracula, The Last Voyage of the Demeter tells the terrifying story of the merchant ship Demeter, which was chartered to carry private cargo—fifty unmarked wooden crates—from Carpathia to London.
Strange events befall the doomed crew as they attempt to survive the ocean voyage, stalked each night by a merciless presence onboard the ship. When the Demeter finally arrives off the shores of England, it is a charred, derelict wreck. There is no trace of the crew.
The film also stars Jon Jon Briones, Stefan Kapicic, Nikolai Nikolaeff, and Javier Botet.
The Last Voyage of the Demeter will be released in the U.S by Universal Pictures and here in the UK it’s eOne UK. The film be released on 11th August in the U.S and a week later, 18th August in the UK and Ireland.
