Check out an exclusive ‘inside look’ featurette on the upcoming horror film The Last Voyage of the Demeter, courtesy of Universal Pictures.
The film, starring Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones) and Corey Hawkins (24), looks to bring to the big screen one of the most terrifying adaptations of Dracula lore with a crew setting sail with the Prince of Darkness as cargo.
Check it out below:
Based on a single chilling chapter from Bram Stoker’s classic novel Dracula, The Last Voyage of the Demeter is directed by André Øvredal (Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark) from a screenplay written by Zak Olkewicz, Bragi Schut, and Stefan Ruzowitzky. It stars Corey Hawkins (In the Heights) as Clemens, a doctor who joins the Demeter crew, Aisling Franciosi (The Nightingale) as an unwitting stowaway, Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones) as the ship’s captain and David Dastmalchian (the Ant-Man franchise) as the Demeter’s first mate.
“The film tells the terrifying story of the merchant ship Demeter, which was chartered to carry private cargo—fifty unmarked wooden crates—from Carpathia to London,” reads the synopsis. “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.
Additional cast includes Jon Jon Briones (American Horror Story), Stefan Kapicic (Deadpool films), Nikolai Nikolaeff (Stranger Things) and Javier Botet (It films, Mama). It is produced by Brad Fischer, Mike Medavoy, and Arnold Messer, with Matthew Hirsch set as an executive producer.
