‘The Last Voyage of the Demeter’ Featurette Video – Practical Effects Turn Javier Botet into a Nightmarish Dracula

Universal has unleashed another brand new featurette for The Last Voyage of the Demeter, this one titled “Creating Dracula” and putting the spotlight on star Javier Botet.

Botet ([REC], Mama, It) plays a particularly monstrous version of Count Dracula in the upcoming horror movie, which director André Øvredal refers to as “feral” and “animalistic.”

“He’s just so good. The way he moves… the way he turns his neck. It was so… frightening,” co-star Corey Hawkins praises Botet’s creature performance in the featurette video.

Watch the behind the scenes video below for a fresh look at Javier Botet’s Dracula and explore the Demeter for yourself over on the film’s brand new interactive website today.

The Last Voyage of the Demeter bites into theaters on August 11, 2023.

Writer Bragi Schut’s script The Last Voyage of the Demetehas been floating around for many years now, with several different directors attached at various points. The director who eventually ended up board the ship is André Øvredal (The Autopsy of Jane Doe, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark), announced back in 2021 as the director for the Amblin Partners film.

Corey Hawkins (Kong: Skull Island, “The Walking Dead”) stars in The Last Voyage of the Demeter. The latest version of the script was written by Zak Olkewicz (Bullet Train).

The film is “based on a single chapter, the Captain’s Log, from Bram Stoker’s classic 1897 novel Dracula. The chapter tells the story of the Russian schooner, Demeter, which was chartered to carry private cargo – twenty four unmarked wooden crates – from Carpathia to London. The film will detail the strange events that befell the doomed crew as they attempt to survive the ocean voyage, stalked each night by a terrifying presence onboard the ship. When it finally arrived near Whitby Harbour, it was a derelict. There was no trace of the crew.”

The cast also includes Aisling Franciosi, Liam Cunningham, David Dastmalchian, Jon Jon Briones, Stefan Kapicic, and Nikolai Nikolaeff, with Javier Botet as Dracula.
