About the film:

Based on the chilling chapter “The Captain’s Log” from Bram Stoker’s classic novel Dracula, The Last Voyage of the Demeter (2023) 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—including the doctor Clemens, an unwitting stowaway, the ship’s captain and first mate—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.
