Hulu Shares Revealing Glimpse Of ‘Helstrom’ First Episode

Thankfully, horror (and Marvel Comics) fans only have a handful of days left before the debut of Helstrom on Hulu.

The first episode will air this Friday, Oct. 16, as reported by comicbook.com, and a tantalizing 10-minute slice of the premiere can be seen on this page–a trailer that teases the eerie atmosphere of the series.

The clip features several of the show’s leading characters, and sheds some light on the backstory of Daimon and Ana Helstrom, their mother Victoria and the supernatural events surrounding their not-so-normal lives. The series–as shown in this trailer from the first episode–looks to make a strong horror statement by Marvel.

The show’s 10-episode first season–as reported here in Horror News Network–follows Daimon Helstrom (an ethics professor who moonlights as an exorcist) and his sister Ana (who runs an auction house), the children of a notorious serial killer. To further muddy the waters, their father is really “a demon who drove their mother into an insane asylum.” The brother-sister team now “uses their supernatural powers to hunt the worst of humanity.”

The show–with the devilish tagline, “Every family has its demons”–stars Tom Austen as Daimon, Sydney Lemmon as Ana, Elizabeth Marvel as Victoria, Robert Wisdom as The Caretaker, Ariana Guerra as Gabriella Rosetti, June Carryl as Dr. Louise Hastings and Alain Uy as Chris Yen.

Helstrom–created by showrunner Paul Zbyszewski–is loosely based on the Marvel Comics characters of Daimon and Satana Hellstrom, who were brought to four-color life by writers Roy Thomas and Gary Friedrich and artist John Romita Sr. Daimon first appeared in Ghost Rider No1 and Satana debuted in the pages of Vampire Tales No2, both of which hit the stands way back in 1973.
