We have nothing with the outcast and the unfit: let them die in their misery. For they feel not. Compassion is the vice of kings: stamp down the wretched & the weak: this is the law of the strong: this is our law and the joy of the world.
“The critics are clamoring for Outcast, the gripping thriller about black magic and witchery that stars James Nesbitt (The Hobbit) and James Cosmo (Braveheart). Ain’t It Cool News calls it ‘an excellent film’ to be seen ‘at all costs,’ and Eight Rooks of TwitchFilm.com proclaims it ‘a genuinely menacing piece of horror.’ Mary (Kate Dickie, TV’s ‘The Pillars of the Earth’) harbors a dark history, but must confront her past when a hunter with magical powers (Nesbitt) is assigned to capture her and kill her son. As the terrifying cat-and-mouse game continues, locals begin to die at the hands of an unknown life force and a deadly fear takes hold.”
“Director : Colm McCarthy
Cast : James Nesbitt, Kate Dickie, Niall Bruton, Hanna Stanbridge”
“My most memorable personal experience of the effects of black magic occurred when I was living in Scotland. The machinations of a degraded and outcast member of the Order caused my hounds to die, my servants to become insane. The struggle lasted until the recoil of the current of hated caused the luckless sorcerer to collapse.” [via, also]
