'The Walking Dead' Season 7 Spoilers, Plot & Release Date:New Show 'Outcast' From Robert Kirkman Offers New Details?
"The Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman recently unveiled another stunning television masterpiece with "Outcast which Cinemax has debuted its pilot episode on YouTube and Facebook.
The exorcism drama stars Patrick Fugit as Kyle Barnes, who has been plagued by demonic possession all his life and has sequestered himself from those he loves for fear of causing greater hurt. Now, with the help of evangelist Reverend Anderson (Philip Glenister), Kyle embarks on a journey to find answers and in order for him to regain a normal life.
You can view the pilot here as we give you our own three reasons why you should watch this new level of exorcism drama on your premium cable channel.
3. "Outcast" has more of an innermost threat rather than a primeval and physical one
The show deals with an enigmatic antagonist wherein all roads lead to an inward battle for survival unlike the fleshly and staggering horde of zombies in "The Walking Dead."
The characters in the series as seen in the pilot could be in the next few episodes be dealing with other people who they are not supposed to be.
Although it is not a series to be heavily laden with highbrow analysis yet one still needs to have a sense of logic - especially in thinking what is really inside other people?
2. It is not a road show like "The Walking Dead"
Instead, "Outcast" focuses its view on a small idyllic town with a lot of secrets being keep. The town of Rome, West Virginia is itself a moving oddity in the series as the inhabitants built on each other's skeletons in the cupboard.
Particularly, in the pilot you will feel a sense of dread brought about by the character paraded by community itself. It is a scarier show as the individual living next to you could at a turn into an evil entity with a blink of an eye.
1. Kyle Barnes is no Rick Grimes
Rick Grimes slowly changes into a much grimier person as the series unfolds for "The Walking Dead," in the "Outcast" the character of Fugit from the very first appearance in the pilot has already been long broken down. So the series is more of how you get yourself out of the hole that you yourself have dug into.
"Outcast" premieres Friday, June 3, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Cinemax.
