Based on a single chilling chapter from Bram Stoker’s classic novel, Dracula: Voyage of the Demeter arrives in cinemas August 10.
Based on a single chilling chapter from Bram Stoker’s classic novel, Dracula: 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.
