Robert Kirkman's OUTCAST: NEW Cinemax 30 sec. Promo

     Outcast is a 10 episode Cinemax show based on the Skybound/Image Comics series by Robert Kirkman of The Walking Dead fame.  I'd rather recommend his tremendous comic series Invincible, but that's far less well known, or even his runs on Destroyer or Irredeemable Ant-Man.

     Cinemax has appeared to have given great life to this tale of demonic possession and the toll it takes on those that deal with it for their whole lives.  Outcast is the story of Kyle Barnes (Patrick Fugit) on a journey to live a life of relative normalcy with the aid of Reverend Anderson (Philip Glenister) who is dealing with demons of the personal kind.  There seems to be a lot more to what lies just out of sight from most mortals, and these two may have a hand in keeping them from creeping into this realm.

     As I wrote when the first trailer arrived, the supernatural-horror genre has needed a kick to its ass in recent years, and this show looks to capture the dark roads some must walk quite wonderfully.

     Outcast is set to premiere on Cinemax on June 3rd.
