Season 1 Review: 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. Behind the predictable trash-talking demon with beady eyes, there’s an interesting drama about facing what haunts you.

Season 1 Review: Cliches abound, but Fugit's intriguing soulfulness compels you to watch. [3 June 2016, p.101]

Season 1 Review: This is the sort of unrelenting frightfest that finds menace in objects as ordinary as a Hummel figurine. Before long, you may cringe whenever anyone goes to open a closet or pantry door. [6-19 Jun 2016, p.19]

Season 2 Review: The exorcisms still pack a powerfully violent punch, but the oppressively downcast tone turn shivers into yawns. [23 Jul - 5 Aug 2018, p.11]
