Storyline

Kyle Barnes has had a series of misfortunes in his life; his mother would beat him as a child and he was accused of attacking his own daughter. After attending an exorcism in his native town, he is convinced his mother and his wife were possessed and he was not the source of them going bad. He therefore teams up with Reverend Anderson to try and save people that are possessed by demons while putting up with the residents of his town who think he's bad news and would deserve to be in jail.

Everything American Horror Story SHOULD have been..

Good horror is hard to find.

Grew up on Stephen King, saw the original Living Dead in a theatre, have my own copies of Browning's FREAKS and CAT PEOPLE .. you know the drill.

Tried so hard to like American Horror Story but kept banging into talky self-important scripts and self-important actors and self-important directors.

Only seen one episode of OUTCAST but it looks like a find. Reminded me of the very first S01E01 of X-Files, which seems like something I saw just yesterday. (Actually WAS yesterday, I have the boxed set.)

The direction and cinematography is to die for. Great tone. Interesting characters. The producers boast one of the best pedigrees in the biz. No overblown egos, at least not yet. Really holds the attention which, as I have said my 1100 or so IMDb reviews, is the acid test of any show.

And upcoming actress Wrenn Schmidt has one of the most interesting "TV faces" since Anna Torv in Fringe. I think male viewers in particular will think that, if they were hiding in a semi-condemned house with no water or power, this would be their first choice for someone banging on the door trying to lend a hand.

Very promising.
