Marvel has worn many hats on both the big and small screens: time travel, political thrillers, and post-apocalypses have all served its superheroes well. But it’s never quite nailed horror. Helstrom, set to debut on Hulu this October, is about to rectify that by bringing the scares in a big way – as shown by the first trailer shown during the show’s 2020 Comic-Con@Home panel.
The Helstrom trailer (which you can see below) shows Elizabeth Marvel’s menacing serial killer Mother seemingly unleashing an unseen evil on the world despite being locked away at St Teresa’s.

Complicating matters further is the presence of her children, Damian (subtle much?) and Ana Helstrom, who are confronted by strange red symbols around their mother’s cell and a devilish legacy which they perhaps aren’t quite ready to confront.
All episodes of Helstrom will drop on Hulu on October 16.
