The Last Voyage of the Demeter: Official Movie Review | Dracula Sets Sail For The Box Office

Published

on

The Last Voyage of the Demeter (Universal Pictures)

Plot

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.

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

From DreamWorks Pictures and the producers of Zodiac and Black Swan, The Last Voyage of the Demeter is directed by Norwegian horror virtuoso André Øvredal (Scary Stories We Tell in the Dark, Trollhunter), 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 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.

Movie Review (No Spoilers)

The movie starts off with revealing a potential unhappy ending for the crew of the Demeter, with a spooky narration from the ships’ log to deliver the necessary chills. The action starts off slow but once it starts, it remains consistent, delivering suspense from start to finish.

Corey Hawkins, Aisling Franciosi, Liam Cunningham and David Dastmalchian delivers a great performance throughout this supernatural horror movie. You could feel the fear of the crew just by the performance of the crew. Count Dracula look as deadly as ever and the visuals are bloody amazing. You can see real effort was put in with the make-up and costume of Dracula. No expense was spared with the blood and effects throughout the movie. The story is amazing from start to finish leaving you hungry for more at the end.

My rating for The Last Voyage of the Demeter is 4.5. Dracula is deadly, not just in novels but onscreen as well, especially in the The Last Voyage of the Demeter, and I really hope other areas of Bram Stoker’s novel gets explored for a potential sequel for this movie.

There is no post-credits scene, so no need to wait till the end.

Watch the trailer and catch the movie at a cinema near you to witness the birth of the legend of Count Dracula. The trailer doesn’t spoil anything and serves as a great appetizer.
