‘The Last Voyage of the Demeter’ trailer – new Dracula film described as ‘Alien’ at sea

Universal Pictures has debuted a trailer for their upcoming film The Last Voyage of the Demeter, a horror described by its director as Alien at sea. André Øvredal (Troll Hunter, The Autopsy of Jane Doe) is at the helm of this one which looks really bloody good.

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 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.

This is a big summer release, set for screens on August 11th.

Here’s the brill trailer.
