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.

Exciting news for horror fans today. John Carpenter, director of the original 1978 horror classic Halloween is returning to the franchise as an executive producer. This latest reboot, which was once called Halloween Returns, is now at Blumhouse, with Miramax co-financing development and production. Malek Akkad will produce the sequel under his Trancas International Films banner. Blumhouse founder Jason Blum is also producing.
The new Halloween movie does not have a set release date yet. Miramax, who continue to hold onto worldwide distribution rights, will determine a theatrical release plan in the near future. Though, there appears to be some confusion as to whether or not this is a true sequel to the original featuring Michael Myers as the iconic slasher, or if this is yet another reboot of the franchise. In a statement, John Carpenter had this to say, hinting that this will be the '10th' sequel.
