Outcast a famous horror drama television series created by Robert Kirkman and Paul Azaceta. It debuted on Cinemax and is a supernatural horror story which runs around people who are involved with demonic possession. The main character Kyle Barnes is rejected by the people of Rome, Virginia as he is alleged of hurting his wife and daughter. This is a different concept from the usual daily soaps we watch, and the execution has been outstanding, to say the least. The first season was highly appreciated by the critics.
James Charisma of Playboy noted that unlike the horror element in the series created by Robert Kirkman’s such as The Walking Dead, in Outcast, “the threat is unseen, lurking under the surface characters exist in the present but live in the past, haunted by terrors and ordeals from days gone by.”
