Cinemax, June 3rd
There's so much walking dead out there to fear — so Cinemax goes to the well for another horror show created by Robert Kirkman, based on his own comic. Instead of zombies, Outcast is all about demonic possession, starring Patrick Fugit from Almost Famous as a tormented Southern loner who finds — against his will — that he has a knack for battling the forces of evil, though he'd much rather sit alone in the dark and brood about his fucked-up family traumas. (Between Fugit and Cameron Crowe's Roadies, this summer has everything short of a Stillwater reunion tour.) Drifting back to his home town in West Virginia, Fugit finds an Exorcist-ready case of a child possessed by the devil ... just like the exact same case that afflicted his own mama back in the day. He also meets a Bible-thumping preacher on who drafts Fugit into his duel with the dark side.
