The Marvel horror series that was a complete failure and hardly anyone remembers

Hawkeye arrived this Wednesday on the Disney + streaming service as the last great series of Marvel in the year, after the furor obtained with WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and Loki. However, there was another program that is part of the franchise and it came as a great bet to have a continuation, but unfortunately the plans did not go well and it was canceled.

Fans still keep in their fondest memories the adaptations of the comics on the Netflix platform, as they were Daredevil, The Punisher, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones. These projects were affected by Disney’s agreement with Fox that excluded streaming, although those characters have already been recovered by the MCU and they could be used if they wanted to.

+ Marvel’s horror series that was a flop

On October 16, 2020, he arrived on the platform Hulu TV horror and fantasy series Helstrom, based on Roy Thomas and Gary Friedrich’s character Daimon Hellstrom. The first season of ten episodes in total revolved around Daimon and Ana Helstrom, the children of a powerful serial killer, who hunt the worst in humanity. While its premise is encouraging, this fiction starring Tom Austen and Sydney Lemmon did not have a happy ending.

The reception from the critics has been completely negative: On Rotten Tomatoes it got a rating of 27% and on the Metacritic site it has a score of 40 out of 100. The project had been announced in May 2019 with Paul Zbyszewski as showrunner and executive producer, after having been one of the Responsable of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., with new features such as terror to reach viewers, although the response was not as expected.

At the same time as his announcement, he also confirmed a series of Ghost Rider and from the producer they affirmed that they were going to be part of the MCU, but they wouldn’t intersect with other shows or movies. Helstrom was canceled a few months after the release of its first installment, but not because of the harsh opinions of the press and fans, but because Marvel Television closed and all its works were left unfinished.
