Outcast (1990)

Canadian, no-budget, no-name and straight-to-video, on paper Outcast should be awful and in many ways it is. The lead character is a man of few words, which is lucky as perennial bit-part player John Tench really cannot act.

All other characters are just there to be killed off, which is achieved in an effectively bloody manner. The horror/thriller/supernatural/action story moves along at a good pace until the killing stops, then it starts to drag.

Outcast doesn’t have a lot going for it yet somehow it all fits together. It’s formulaic in its delivery but still an enjoyable, though predictable, movie.
