“Evil is on board. Powerful evil.”
The Last Voyage of the Demeter--a Universal/Dreamworks Dracula-themed horror pic–will dock in theaters this summer, and the official trailer dropped this week. Check out the atmospheric, frightening video on this page.
The film–based on a single chapter (The Captain’s Log) of the iconic Dracula by Bram Stoker–is directed by Andre Ovredal from a screenplay by Bragi Schut, Stefan Ruzowitsky and Zak Olkewicz–and will hit the big screen Aug. 11.
The feature follows the doomed merchant ship Demeter, which was chartered to carry 50 unmarked wooden crates from Carpathia to London, according to the logline.
But, “strange events befall the crew–as they’re stalked each night by a merciless presence aboard the ship.” When the vessel arrives off the shores of England, it is “a charred, derelict wreck. And there’s no trace of the crew.”
The cast includes Corey Hawkins as Clemens, a doctor who joins the ship’s crew; Aisling Franciosi as a stowaway; Liam Cunningham as the ship’s captain; and David Dastmalchian as the ship’s first mate. Also featured are Jo Jo Briones, Stefan Kapicic, Nikolai Nikolaeff and Javier Botet.
Brad Fischer, Mike Medavoy and Arnold Messer are producing the film, with Matthew Hirsch serving as executive producer.
