The legend of Dracula is born! A trailer and poster have been released for the upcoming horror flick The Last Voyage of the Demeter, based on a single chilling chapter from Bram Stoker’s classic novel “Dracula.”
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. 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.
