TV Reviews: Outcast, SSN01 -Episode 3: “All Alone Now” & Episode 4: “A Wrath Unseen”

25 June 2016 4:24 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Episode 3: “All Alone Now”

Episode 2 of Outcast was full of flashbacks that were difficult to differentiate from each other, causing it to be a bit repetitive. We get it already: Kyle’s mom beat the shit out of him as a kid and it was no surprise revelation that she was possessed. The surprise however was in the fact that Kyle wasn’t able to completely save her and it is unclear if she is still possessed. The episode ended with a man in black (Halloween 5, anyone?) paying her a visit who clearly has a sinister agenda and might be the root for all the demons that haunt Kyle. Fortunately, episode 3 does away with the flashbacks and aims for that more sinister material the pilot drew audiences in with.

This Is Why Everyone on Outcast Looks So Damn Familiar

23 June 2016 12:45 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Outcast has a lot of things going for it: it's genuinely terrifying, it's the brainchild of The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, and, above all, its cast never fails to deliver standout performances. If you've found yourself watching the actors in Cinemax's exorcism drama with a weird sense of déjà vu, though, you're not alone. From Patrick Fugit to Reg E. Cathey, the show's core cast has been in tons of other high-profile projects over the years. Save yourself the trouble of looking them up on IMDb every other second by checking out their most well-known roles below, and then see what other scary TV shows you should watch next. »

Outcast episode 3 review: All Alone Now

Outcast certainly looks the part, but underneath the tasteful visuals, is it really the quality horror it announces itself to be?

This review contains spoilers.

1.3 All Alone Now

The synopsis for Outcast’s third episode reads: “Kyle and Anderson confront an unusual possession”. You need only substitute Mulder and Scully or Dean and Sam for those names to see how this show could take a turn towards the procedural. All Alone Now’s freak-of-the-week structure could form a pattern for future episodes: a cold open introduces new characters and a new demon, then Kyle and Anderson arrive to daub the possessed with holy water and aggressively punch them in the head. Get the central double-act right and it’s a formula that could run and run.

A gloomier answer to Supernatural though, is a step down from what Outcast initially promised to be. Its design, direction and »

Yes, let's not give money to Frank Darabont, but waste it here, The Walking Dead

17 June 2016 2:22 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Warning: Spoilers for The Walking Dead season 6 follow... The Walking Dead producers really painted themselves into a corner with that Season 6 closer. Ordinarily, this is one of the most divisive shows on television. It's wildly, outrageously popular and successful, but if the Internet reaction to the series is anything to judge by, it is either the greatest piece of fiction to ever grace the small screen or an abomination of bad storytelling. I don't happen to think either is true. That aside, what was remarkable about last season's finale is that for once most of the fanbase/viewership was united. Audiences were already feeling burned by the Glenn fake-out earlier in the season. So to then to tease the arrival of the villain Negan and his deadly bat Lucille for months only to have him show up for about a half a second and then leave us to wonder Which »

'Outcast' Stars Reg E. Cathey and Philip Glenister Talk Robert Kirkman's New Show

17 June 2016 8:37 AM, PDT | CineMovie | See recent CineMovie news »

 

If you have a show about demonic possession, you need an exorcist. For "Outcast," that exorcist is Reverend Anderson (Philip Glenister). He enlists Kyle Barnes (Patrick Fugit) to help him perform exorcism for the town’s possessed residents. We already saw one brutal exorcism in the pilot.

The demons in town also have to contend with the law. Chief Giles (Reg. E. Cathey) tries to maintain law and order but he may be in over his head. We got to sit in a roundtable interview with Glenister and Cathey to talk about "Outcast," from creator Robert Kirkman ("The Walking Dead") and based on his comic book. "Outcast" airs Fridays at 10Pm on Cinemax.

The Walking Dead Season 7: Has Negan Revealed His Victim's Identity?

14 June 2016 8:45 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Since The Walking Dead’s Season 6 finale left us with the most polarizing cliffhanger in recent memory, we’ve seen fans of the AMC hit use everything from geometry to isolated audio clips in hopes of deducing which character Negan fatally “beat the holy hell out of.” But, in thinking and rethinking over the climactic scene, we’ve realized that the top Savior might actually have identified his victim himself before he’d even started swinging. Consider:

Outcast episode 2 review: (I Remember) When She Loved Me

Outcast plays with perspective in its second episode, which revisits Kyle’s childhood memories of his mother…

This review contains spoilers.

1.2 (I Remember) When She Loved Me

The most thankless part in an unambiguous supernatural drama is the role of the disbeliever. The character who, knee-deep in gooey evidence of vengeful ghosts or hungry werewolves tsks at the suggestion there is Something Weird Going On. “You don’t actually believe in all that shit, do you?” they say, usually seconds before a bat-demon crunches its way out of their thorax and discards their corpse like the used innards of a Kinder Egg.

In Outcast, that role belongs to cop Mark Holter, brother-in-law to demon-magnet Kyle Barnes. The laws of genre predict that Mark isn’t long for this world, that the town’s widely accepted lurking evil will soon punish him for his scepticism.

And yet, scepticism »

Outcast Recap: I Remember Mama

File this one under “Easier said than done”: In this week’s Outcast, Kyle told his catatonic mother Sarah that, after what she did to him while possessed, he had intended not to give a damn about her anymore. Trouble was, of course, he not only still cared, he cared a lot. So in “(I Remember) When She Loved Me,” he attempted to cast out the demon inside her. Did it work? Read on and find out.

Brian Michael Bendis’ Comic Series Scarlet Is Being Adapted For TV

10 June 2016 3:09 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jessica Jones scribe Brian Michael Bendis’ comic series Scarlet is being eyed for adaptation by Cinemax. Bendis let slip plans for a TV adaptation while at the Atx Television Festival today. “I do a book called Scarlet which is soon to be announced also in our universe of television,” he said, “Not announced yet, but HBO… the team around it… will be announce as soon as all are on the same page.”

It’s a relatively fresh development, with Deadline updating their initial report to correct and confirm several details. Most importantly, the fact that it’s not HBO proper, but its sister channel Cinemax. That’s where The Walking Dead scribe Robert Kirkman found a home for his other comic Outcast, a dark, moody series about possession, that’s been receiving pretty solid reviews thus far. Bearing that in mind, Cinemax seems a promising home for a property that »

Image Comics and Skybound Entertainment have announced that a new story arc will get underway in issue #19 of Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead, Invincible) and Paul Azaceta’s (Daredevil, Punisher Noir) ongoing horror series Outcast, which goes on sale on July 27th.
