The Last Voyage of the Demeter was a strange adaptation in the way that it took a small section of the novel Dracula by Bram Stoker and made it into an entire movie. The film hits Digital, Blu-ray, and DVD starting on October 17th. It’ll have some new bonus features like deleted scenes and an alternate opening of the movie.

THE LAST VOYAGE OF THE DEMETER is directed by Norwegian horror virtuoso André Øvredal (Troll Hunter, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark), featuring a talented cast starring Corey Hawkins (Blackkklansman, In the Heights), Aisling Franciosi (“Game of Thrones”, The Nightingale, The Fall), Liam Cunningham (“Game of Thrones”, Hunger, The Wind that Shakes the Barley), David Dastmalchian (The Dark Knight, Dune, The Suicide Squad), Chris Walley (1917, The Young Offenders, Bloodlands), Jon Jon Briones (“Ratched”, “American Horror Stories), Stefan Kapicic (“Better Call Saul”), Martin Furuland (“The Last Kingdom”), Nikolai Nikolaeff (Mile 22, “Daredevil”), Woody Norman (C’mon C’mon), Javier Botet (It, Amigo).

Here’s a synopsis of the film from Universal Pictures:

A terrifying new addition to the Dracula legend, based on a single chilling chapter from Bram Stoker’s classic novel, THE LAST VOYAGE OF THE DEMETER chronicles the doomed journey of a merchant ship ferrying 50 mysterious wooden crates from Carpathia to London. As they set sail, the crew soon discovers they are not alone on board: at night they are stalked by a hidden passenger whose monstrous thirst for blood turns the trip into a harrowing nightmare of tension, terror and unfathomable evil.
