Outcast ( MA)
Stars: James Nesbitt, Kate Dickie
Director: Colm Mccarthy
Available: Oct 20 on DVD It’s hard to tell what’s more grim in this tiresome Scottish-set occult horror – the bleak council estate setting, the uneven mess of genres it tries to establish itself in, or the nothing filmmaking. Everywhere actor James Nesbitt stars as a bloodthirsty hunter trying to track down his one-time squeeze and their mutant offspring, who seems to have some magical beastie powers. Some interesting elements but the filmmaking leaves a bit to be desired.
Extras: ★ ★ A pretty good behind-the-scenes featurette. Interviews, plotting, character and backstory chatter serve as a making-of.
