There’s just a month to go until the June 3rd debut of Robert Kirkman‘s new Cinemax horror series based on the comic book of the same name Outcast hits. Kirkman is hoping to tap into the Horror vein with even half the success of The Walking Dead. Cinemax is a good home for Outcast as the horror elements might have been too much for many main stream television channels. There’s a new trailer out that sets the tone of the series and what horrors one might expect to see.
Starring Patrick Fugit, (Almost Famous) as Kyle Barnes, a man lived his whole life in a family that has been plagued with demonic possession. Now he’s returned to his home town to find out what the hell is going on and how he can stop it. Directed by Adam Wingard (You’re Next), the cast includes many familiar faces, Philip Glenister (Life on Mars), David Denman (The Office), Lee Tergesen (Oz), Grace Zabriskie (Twin Peaks), and fan favorite Brent Spiner (Star Trek: The Next Generation).
The series hasn’t even aired an episode but Cinemax is so pleased with what they have seen so far they have already ordered a second 10 episode season. Here’s the new trailer.
What did you think? Will this new horror series draw in the horror audience of American Horror Story or Ash Vs Evil Dead?
