Having previously collaborated with Director André Øvredal on Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, MPC teamed up once more, delivering some seriously creepy creature work. Based on a single chilling chapter from Bram Stoker’s classic novel Dracula, The Last Voyage of the Demeter tells the story of an unholy presence that dooms the crew of the merchant ship Demeter as it sails from Carpathia to London.
