Product Description

Product Description

When Mary and her teenage son, Fergal, move to yet another new home, it soon becomes clear they live their lives on the run, hiding from someone or something, terrified of being found.

Their hunter Cathal (James Nesbitt) soon picks up the trail. Intent on tracking Mary and Fergal, he will go to any length to succeed in his quest, often using dark arts to aid him. Mary’s only defence is to use an ancient form of her own magic to protect her only son. When local residents begin to be brutally murdered by an unknown life force, the sense of fear escalates. Is Cathal the beast responsible for the killing? Or is it the beats that he is trying to destroy?

!!!WARNING. MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!

When Mary(Kate Dickie) moves into a grotty flat in an Edinburgh tower block with her shy, introverted son Fergal(Niall Bruton), she wastes no time in painting mysterious pagan symbols on the walls. Mary doesn't want to be found, a fact that becomes even more evident when she casts a spell on a nosey housing officer. The one problem is that her pursuer Cathal(James Nesbitt) has aqquired powers of his own in order to hunt and track her down. Why is Cathal so keen to find and punish his prey, and why is Kate so eager to protect her son from the outside world, even warning away young Petronella(Hanna Stanbridge) whom Fergal has feelings for. You will have to watch yourselves to discover the horrifying truth....
I'm not sure why so many reviewers have castigated this enjoyable horror film. A joint Scottish/Irish production, it may not be perfect but at least it has the guts tell a proper story, and a pretty unique one at that, rather than just be yet another routine slasher with assorted bland teens in peril. I was initially going to give this film only four stars, but the more I thought about it the more I realised that it deserved the full five for its originality.
The cast all perform well. Nesbitt is excellent playing a character full of malevolent anger, foolish pride and a lust for revenge which finally proves his undoing. James Cosmo has very little screen time as the mysterious Laird but is a commanding presence whenever he does appear. Hanna Stanbridge is surely one talent to watch out for in the future as she is great as the troubled Petronella.
Also to be applauded are the the director and writers for making a refrehingly original horror involving magic, murder and trangression in and around the traveller community.

An absolutely fantastic film steeped in a very British/Irish mythos. Other reviews will give a synopsis of the film but I want to point out the way that the film manages to capture some of the washed out banality of living on an Edinburgh scheme(I should know, I've lived on a few) and the very gritty and folkloric heathenism of Celtic mythology. Kitchen Sink Urban Fantasy is the best way I can think of describing this film. It has none of the smooth edges and super model perfection of most urban fantasy films and is all the better for it. I can't recommend this highly enough.

Format: DVD
Outcast is a weird beast if you'll pardon the pun, as the cover both misrepresents the film, and represents it perfectly. I mean that in the sense that most films with that design are trashy slash-em ups with a beastie constantly munching down on a cast of nubile teens. If you want that, this is NOT that film. However, it is, as the cover suggests, a movie about a monster and a housing estate.
It's also brilliant.
It's worth thinking of this as a cross between a coming of age drama, and a nasty-edged murder mystery, as those are its closest relatives. When Mary (Kate Dickie) and her teenage son Fergal (Niall Bruton) move into a Scottish housing estate, nobody thinks anything of it. However, it's clear that they have something to hide, and that something is very amiss. Amidst the kitchen-sink drama and poverty, we're shown James Nesbitt's angry, dangerous Cathal seeking permission to hunt someone, and undergoing a painful gypsy style ritual, and Mary frantically daubing 'protection' spells on her filthy walls.
The best thing about the film, is that for once it treats the audience as adults and unlike its simplistic American cousins, it doesn't explain everything, leaving us to draw our own conclusions. Have Mary and Fergal done something terrible? Are they victims? Is Cathal a psychopath or a brave (albeit flawed) man on a just mission?
Mystery shrouds everything, and it's better for it. In amongst the grime and the realistic everyday drama, it helps make the more bizarre elements like the runes and magic seem far more real and genuine. It helps that the magic here isn't twinkly lights and explosions, but a more primal, old style - brutal, dirty, chanting and runes and candles - and it feels believable. The relationships are terrific as well.

Don't be swayed by the bad reviews, this film is well worth a watch. Although there aren't any substantial plot twists the pace and storytelling are brilliant, the plot innovative and the monster brilliant. Furthermore an entirely new and intriguing world has been created, one which I would love to see more of. It is also rather beautifully shot. Definitely one for afficionados of intelligent horror.

As a general point, I have learned to ignore the marketing comparisons that appear on the front covers of all horror dvds, you know the type, "the best since... or the most original since (inset film title here)", they are usually written by ar*ewipes called Justin who have never seen the film and whose sole purpose is to entice the punters to part with their cash.

I also ignore the reviews that start ".....I wish I could get two hours of my life back" As they seem to appear on every film review list and are written by naysayers who have nothing better to do than litter the internet like a disease.

To me, the purpose of a horror film is to; engage, frighten and entertain....and to some extent, "Outcast" does all three of these things. I don't think you will get much disagreement from anybody who has seen the film, that it will not make the best 10 horror movies of the decade, but as an overall package, it is a solid and reasonably original piece of work.

There are several other reviewers who have provided a decent synopsis for the film, so I won't bother doing so, but what I will do, is pretend that you, the potential purchaser of the movie, was a friend and you had asked me whether it was worth buying, my response would be.....If you want an enjoyable, thoughtful late-night bit of horror....give this one a watch. I got this for a couple of quid at Zoverstocks (Amazon Marketplace) and it was well worth the price. However if you like to be spoonfed your horror in a Hollywood style, and believe good guys always wear white and like happy endings....then best avoid.
