Critic Consensus: A cut above average summer fare, Outcast provides the genuine chills one should -- but often can't -- expect from television horror.

News & Interviews for Outcast: Season 1
Judging by the enthusiastic reactions to the world premiere of Outcast's pilot episode, screened on Monday at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, Kirkman and his team have another compulsively creepy hit on their hands.
It isn't for everyone, but Outcast is likely to satisfy fans of horror done well.
The moving pieces in Outcast always feel like there's solid ground beneath them. We get to know each character; if not overly well then paced to a satisfying slowness.
The cast and the emotional back story in Outcast are compelling, and so is the growing sense that Kirkman is using his tale of demonic possession - based on his own Outcast comic book series - as a broad allegory of domestic abuse.
With all this time spent checking off genre boxes, there's scant space for the narrative to breathe beyond them.
