‘Helstrom’ Full Trailer Reveals Demons In The Family

The Marvel Comics small screen excursion into horror begins in earnest next month with the first season of Helstrom.

And to pave the terror-filled way, a revealing trailer (check it out below) has been dropped to give fans a good look at the Helstrom siblings and their adventures to come, as reported by comicbook.com.

The initial 10-episode season–carrying the chilling tagline, “Every family has its demons”–will debut Oct. 16 during the streamer’s Huluween promotion. The show follows Daimon and Ana Helstrom, the children of a “mysterious and powerful serial killer, (who) have a complicated dynamic as they track down the terrorizing worst of humanity–each with their own attitude and skills,” according to the official synopsis.

But–and this is where the true horror rears its ugly head–the truth behind the Helstrom clan is that Daimon and Ana’s father is really “a demon who drove their mother, Victoria, into an insane asylum.” And now, “they use their supernatural powers to hunt the worst of humanity.”

In the show, Daimon (a professor of ethics by day and an exorcist by night) is played by Tom Austen and his sister Ana (who runs an auction house) is portrayed by Sydney Lemmon. The balance of the cast includes Elizabeth Marvel (Victoria), Robert Wisdom (The Caretaker), Ariana Guerra (Gabriella Rosetti), June Carryl (Dr. Louise Hastings) and Alain Uy (Chris Yen).

The series–created by showrunner Paul Zbyszewski–has Jeph Loeb, the head of Marvel Television, as executive producer, and is based on Marvel Comics characters Daimon and Satana Hellstrom dreamed up by writers Roy Thomas and Gary Friedrich and artist John Romita Sr.
