Outcast is a particularly odd film to categorize. It’s sort of a werewolf movie, except it never really ends up being about werewolves. It feels like it’s taking the viewer through familiar territory but keeps finding ways to circumvent the norm. At the outset, its characters aren’t tremendously likable people, but they’re soon given enough depth and personality to make us care. I wasn’t expecting very much from Outcast at the start, but it held my interest right from the get-go. By the end I was quite surprised by how easily it held my attention, and that is perhaps the best compliment I can give it.
