Outcast


Pilot: What a great pilot! Smartly written with a great hook and effectively establishing the creepy as hell tone from start to end. It feels like The Exorcist meets The Conjuring meets Preacher. Everything from the music (by Atticus Ross) to the directing and cinematography was top notch in making this feel scary and foreboding. Robert Kirkman's script wisely chose to start in media res and slowly tease out bits of information on the backstory which really gets the audience hooked. I can't wait to find out more about what the hell is really happening! The casting was spot on, and even though our leads were relatively unknowns, the benefit of them not having the burden of fame helped to sell the story. Patrick Fugit in particular seemed to be channeling Hugh Dancy from Hannibal. Gosh, that boy was scary! Can't wait for the next episode!
