‘The Last Voyage of the Demeter’ Will Stream on Paramount+ Next Month

Dracula Rises Again

2023 saw the release of two distinct renditions of the popular Universal monster character, Dracula. Nicolas Cage took a bite at the character in the action/horror/comedy Renfield, released in the spring. However, a second Dracula-based film was released later in the year to less acclaim, The Last Voyage of the Demeter. Despite the film being a box-office disaster, viewers will have another chance to catch the film when it debuts on Paramount+ next month.

Synopsis

Directed by André Øvredal and written by Bragi Schut Jr. and Zak Olkewicz, The Last Voyage of the Demeter is an adaptation of a single chapter from Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel Dracula. The film follows the crewmen of the Demeter, who are set to deliver 50 unmarked wooden crates. The voyage turns into a nightmare when mysterious and horrifying events start to occur, leaving those aboard the ship forced to fight for survival as they find themselves trapped on the ship with Dracula. The film stars Corey Hawkins, Liam Cunningham, Aisling Franciosi, and David Dastmalchian.

Performance

After being stuck in development hell for nearly three decades, The Last Voyage of the Demeter finally sailed into theaters on August 11, 2023. Development for the film began in the early ‘90s when Bragi Schut Jr. wrote a spec script after meeting with a friend who worked on the 1992 film Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Various studios, actors, and directors came and went on the project over the years, until Amblin Partners gained the rights and announced André Øvredal as director in October 2019. 

When The Last Voyage of the Demeter hit theaters in August, reception among critics for the film was divisive, as the movie only scored a 49% percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. However, audiences responded well, with the film earning a 75% score. Despite the favorable view among audiences, the film became a box-office bomb. With a $45 million production budget, the box office ended with only $21.8 million in profits. 

Streaming

The Last Voyage of the Demeter was released for rent on digital platforms on August 29, 2023, nearly two weeks after it debuted in theaters. Blu-ray and DVD copies of the movie were released on October 17, 2023, but any updates revolving around streaming were silent. However, it has been announced that the movie will land on Paramount+ with SHOWTIME on February 11, 2024.
