Watch The Helstrom Trailer

Hulu has released the official Helstrom trailer for the upcoming horror series adaptation based on the Marvel comics. Premiering all 10 episodes on October 16.

Helstrom follows siblings and supposed serial killer offspring Daimon Helstrom (Tom Austen) and Ana Helstrom (Sydney Lemmon). Plagued by their family background, the Helstrom’s will pursue the world’s vilest of the vile — with some family drama of their own.

Daimon is a professor of ethics who moonlights as an exorcist. Daimon has no illusions about saving a world he has no patience for; he just hopes he can help a few of the people closest to him. In his battle against a hidden world, Daimon is determined to root out demons as they arise, and will not stop until they’re vanquished.

Ana runs a successful auction house and suffers no fools, but her true interest lies in hunting down those who hurt others. Traumatized by her father as a child, Ana is driven to rid the world of those like him, even as she secretly worries her father will return.

The series stars Austen (Grantchester, The Royals) as Daimon, Lemmon (Fear the Walking Dead) as Ana, Elizabeth Marvel (Homeland, Unbelievable) as Victoria Helstrom, Ariana Guerra (Raising Dion) as Gabriella Rosetta, Robert Wisdom (Ballers) as the Caretaker, June Carryl (Mindhunter) as Dr. Louise Hastings, and Alain Uy (The Passage) as Chris Yen.

Hulu To Air Clive Barker’s Books of Blood In October

Hulu has unveiled the key art and October premiere date for the forthcoming feature adaptation of Clive Barker’s horror anthology Books of Blood starring Britt Robertson (For the People) and co-written and helmed by Brannon Braga (The Orville).

Consisting of six books published between 1984-85, the anthology which mostly covered the horror genre with the occasional fantasy element mixed in, received rave reviews from critics and readers alike, with legend Stephen King calling Barker the “future of horror.” Some of the film’s individual stories have already been adapted for the big and small screen, namely “The Forbidden,” which became the cult classic Candyman, and The Midnight Meat Train.

Braga is set to co-write, executive produce and direct in his feature debut with The Girlfriend Experience‘s Anna Friel, Under the Dome‘s Britt Robertson, Godfather of Harlem‘s Rafi Gavron and Russian Doll‘s Yul Vazquez all signed on to star in the film. Adam Simon, co-creator of WGN’s Salem, is also attached to co-write the project, which will blend together three tales from the books in an overarching narrative that also features original material.

Friel is attached to play Mary, a brilliant psychologist who has gained fame as a skeptic debunking theories and beliefs not based in science who is struggling with the loss of her 7-year-old son to leukemia and has a change of heart when her new lover Simon convinces her he can speak her dead son. Robertson is attached as Jenna, a hypersensitive girl who suffers from “misphonia,” an abhorrence of sound, and sets out for Los Angeles when she learns her mother is about to send her back to the “Farm.”

Gavron will star as Simon, a charismatic young man who begins a relationship with Mary and convinces her he is a ghost whisperer and can speak for her dead son. Vazquez will portray Bennett, a professional killer who’s latest target tells him of a priceless book that will allow him and his wife to retire, only to come across supernatural threats in his journey for the book.
