New horror series on Cinemax called OUTCAST.
Created & Written by Robert Kirkland it was originally a comic book (I had not read it) it follows a man living in West Virginia, starting to socialize again after some disturbing events in his life. Through flashbacks we see that his mother went crazy when he was a young boy, beat him and locked him in a pantry while she went wild in the house, having fits of anger and smashing stuff up. We see that his wife too suffered a similar problem, attacking their child.
He hooks up with the local Minister (played by UK actor Phillip Glenister, with a flawless American accent--which is weird as he has a distinct and heavy British accent) who has been asked to attend to a local boy acting out the same way. Is the boy just having some emotional problems or is he somehow possessed. Turns out the latter, and appears to be the same effects as the main character's Mother and wife. Together with the holy man they attempt to help the lad.
The first episode was compelling and well acted, and the flashbacks came brief and were easy to plug into the current timeline events.
Anyone else see this?
