A new clip from The Last Voyage of the Demeter shows Dracula (played by Javier Botet) attacking ship crew members
Universal Pictures’ The Last Voyage of the Demeter, which is based on a single chapter, the Captain’s Log, from Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel Dracula, is set to reach theatres this Friday, August 11th… and if you don’t want to wait for more days to see the film’s version of Dracula in action, all you have to do is watch the new clip embedded above! The clip shows Dracula, played by Javier Botet (Mama), attacking the crew of the titular ship.
Escaping development hell twenty years after the script was first written (Bragi F. Schut, Stefan Ruzowitzky, and Zak Olkewicz all receive writing credits on the finished film), The Last Voyage of the Demeter tells the 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 stars Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton) 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. Also in the cast are Jon Jon Briones (American Horror Story), Stefan Kapicic (Deadpool films), Nikolai Nikolaeff (Stranger Things), and the aforementioned Javier Botet.
Directed by André Øvredal (Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark), The Last Voyage of the Demeter is coming to us from DreamWorks Pictures. The project was produced by Brad Fischer and Mike Medavoy and Arnold Messer for Phoenix Pictures. Matthew Hirsch serves as executive producer.

I won’t be making it out to the theatre this week, but I’m really looking forward to seeing The Last Voyage of the Demeter at some point down the line.
