Evil Aboard First Trailer for André Øvredal’s Dracula-Inspired Shocker, ‘THE LAST VOYAGE OF THE DEMETER’

EVIL IS ON BOARD!

Universal Pictures has just dropped the first official trailer for Norwegian horror virtuoso André Øvredal‘s (Scary Stories To Tell in the Dark, Trollhunter) latest chilling endeavour, The Last Voyage of the Demeter.

Directed by Øvredal, from a script by Bragi F. Schut (Escape Room), Stefan Ruzowitzky (The Counterfeiters) and Zak Olkewicz (the upcoming Bullet Train), based on the chapter “The Captain’s Log” of Bram Stoker’s “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 stars Corey Hawkins (In the Heights, Straight Outta Compton) as Clemens, a doctor who joins the Demeter crew, Aisling Franciosi (“Game of Thrones,” The Nightingale) as an unwitting stowaway, Liam Cunningham (“Game of Thrones,” Clash of the Titans) as the ship’s captain and David Dastmalchian (Dune, the Ant-Man franchise) as the Demeter’s first mate.

The film also features Jon Jon Briones (Ratched, “American Horror Story”), Stefan Kapicic (the Deadpool saga, “Better Call Saul”), Nikolai Nikolaeff (“Stranger Things,” Bruised) and Javier Botet (Rec, Mama).

The film is produced by Brad Fischer and by Oscar®-nominated producer Mike Medavoy and Arnold Messer for Phoenix Pictures and is executive produced by Matthew Hirsch.

The Last Voyage of the Demeter is slated for an August 11 theatrical release and in the meantime, we’ll leave you with the aforementioned trailer.
