It wasn’t too long ago that we shared the news about the upcoming Supernatural Horror film from Universal Pictures called “The Last Voyage Of The Demeter”. I had presented the Official Trailer (HERE) and found it interesting that the film originally stems from a single chapter in the original “Dracula” novel. This film opens today in theaters around the country. Down below you’ll see the poster, a premise reminder and casting.

The mighty Metallica was touring in support of their recently release album “72 Seasons” and their touring cycle was going to bring them to MetLife Stadium for two nights.
