Demeter director has experience with unlucky dates

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Friday, May 1, 2009

There's life still left in The Last Voyage of Demeter. That's the spec script stuck in development hell for years that tells the story of the ship that transported Dracula from his ancestral home to England. During the voyage the undead count feasted on the vessel's crew, one at a time, until the ship pulled into dock with no soul left alive onboard.

It's a great idea for a movie and writer Bragi Schut Jr. deserves to be commended for seeing the potential from that small portion of Brad Stoker's novel. But the producers of Demeter haven't been able to pull the trigger. Now they might have a silver bullet in their pistol in the shape of director Marcus Nispel, the guy who brought us the new Friday the 13th two months back.

I\ve wanted to read the script for Demeter to see how Schut captured the atmosphere of dread. I'd like to see a new side to the Dracula mythos and since we know what happens to the Demeter's crew in the end, the pure horror of being stalked by a vampire, something that's dead, and being unable to run away because you're surrounded on all sides by water, that appeals to me. I have high hopes that ship can finally sail.
