When I think Scottish monster movies I think ‘Dog Soldiers’ or perhaps a Loch Ness movie, but now my mind will be guided instead to Colm McCarthy’s ‘Outcast’. TV director McCarthy (whose previous credits include ‘Spooks’ and ‘Hustle’) co-penned this monstrous story that stars Hanna Stanbridge, Niall Bruton, Kate Dickie, James Nesbitt (‘Jekyll’, ‘Cold Feet’), Karen Gillan (‘Doctor Who’s Amy Pond) and Ciarán McMenamin (‘Primeval’), and it arrives on DVD here in the UK on 17 January 2011, courtesy of Momentum Pictures. Below you can check out a batch of stills, the UK DVD box art and the trailer from the flick to wet your appetite for Scotch terror!
“It tells the tale of Petronella (a Scottish/Romany girl) and Fergal (her mysterious Irish traveller boyfriend). As their doomed relationship plays out, a Beast stalks the estate, killing locals, working its way towards our protagonists. Meanwhile Cathal and Liam, two mysterious travellers from Ireland use ritual and magic on a blood hunt. Mary, Fergal’s mother performs ritual and magic of her own. As Cathal comes face to face with Mary in a vicious finale we know one thing: the Beast must die.”
