Marvel's Helstrom

Critics Consensus

Helstrom's strong visual effects can't save it from the fact that it's characters simply aren't interesting enough to overcome their familiar setting.

Critic Reviews for Marvel's Helstrom Season 1

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (5)

Now lacking a 'Marvel Originals' moniker, Helstrom is missing clear stakes and intriguing characters, too.

Oct 15, 2020 | Full Review…

Given that Helstrom is already the last piece of a TV administration Marvel has moved away from, nothing here is good enough to make an investment in. Check out CBS' actually clever, actually scary Evil instead.

Oct 15, 2020 | Full Review…

A horror series in name and appearance only, Helstrom remains a lame-duck brand property to the core.

Oct 15, 2020 | Full Review…
Top Critic

In the end, there's nothing that's wrong with Helstrom that couldn't have been fixed with a little more attention and care... Helstrom has its charms, but all these small problems combine to make it a frustrating watch.

Oct 20, 2020 | Full Review…

Hulu's Helstrom keeps its focus too firmly set on the rearview mirror.

Oct 20, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The implementation of horror and supernatural elements usually works best when it's in examination of the human condition and Helstrom fails in its refusal to do that.

Oct 19, 2020 | Full Review…

With its formulaic plot, low stakes and plodding pace, Helstrom fails to connect as a family drama or a supernatural horror adventure. The series is a true wasted opportunity to take a deeper dive into the scarier side of the Marvel Universe.

Oct 19, 2020 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

A bland last gasp for Marvel Television.

Oct 19, 2020 | Full Review…

Tonewise, Helstrom is a dark thriller with plenty of supernatural touches, but it also pokes fun at supernatural stuff. There are gallows humor and sarcasm in plentiful supply, along with a strong sense of world-weariness.

Oct 16, 2020 | Full Review…

Though the family dynamics give Helstrom its emotional weight, the overarching mythology is what keeps you intrigued.

Oct 15, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Helstrom is as generic as any other serial killer TV series. Everyone involved puts in a solid effort to make this a worthwhile watch, but it isn't scary enough and it isn't unique enough to commit ten hours of your life to.

Oct 15, 2020 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Helstrom is worth the watch and while it does not have the immediacy of something like The Boys, it's a worthwhile story for those missing their Marvel injections this year.

Audience Reviews for Marvel's Helstrom: Season 1

    Some people say that this show doesn't have the typical Marvel feel to it and that's why it is doing poorly on critic ratings. Some also say that the acting is poor due to the plot and the story weakness. Even though I may not be a certified critic, I know an entertaining plot and series from one that is not good. This story has intrigue for sure, and while the story and script could've been better, I think it delivered what it intended to. If this series got another season I think that would all improve. As far as my enjoyment of the series, well...I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed every second. I like how it kept it's seriousness throughout and didn't cave to the jokes that could've been made. Theme of a series is super important and it was super clear what the theme was. I WANT to SEE MORE! I didn't get enough of Hellstorm or Satana (Daimon and Ana). Their powers have only been scratched and I think a second season could deliver some much needed dark tone to the MCU. Please renew HULU!

    helstrom is just as fun and scary as you need it to be for halloween time! the action is just as stimulating as the dialogue. the characters are down to earth and supernatural without feeling conflicting. i can't wait for what the second season holds!

    As usual "top critics" are complaining about the form and not the content! "not enough attention to details... Blablabla... This is not a French avant-guard movie, it is a TV series with a mix of supernatural, family issues and good versus evil. I liked it very much and I couldn't stop watching it in one glorious time! Rotten? Not at all! It is a great show and if it is cancelled based on critics who don't get the appeal of such a show, that will be a stupid mistake!

    Apart from Sydney Lemon, who is a delightful revelation, nothing interesting here. It's like watching an average network show with some spooky effects.
