Marvel's Helstrom: Season 1 Reviews

October 22, 2020
In the first five episodes made available to press, a general lack of focus prevails, as those plot threads and others keep piling up and unspooling without intersecting.

It's moody and ominous but superficially. There are glimpses of something more compelling buried in the usual, but the show hasn't found its footing or identity yet.

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.

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

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

Those looking for thrills beyond the generic variety may want more than this superpowered exorcist series...

If Helstrom is intent on being a show about people, rather than flashy demonic prosthetics or digital effects, then it's a shame that the people it centers on aren't always very engaging.
