Karen’s Outcast

With all this Doctor Who and Christmas themed fun going around it would be easy to forget that Amy Pond actress Karen Gillan appears in a new British horror flick out this year.

Outcast stars James Nesbitt (star of Steven Moffat’s Jekyll) as hunter Cathal, Kate Dickie and James Cosmo co-starring and Karen Gillan plays a supporting role as Ally, a friend of Dickie’s character Mary.

Cathal is a killer who is pursuing his former lover Mary (Dickie). Mary, a woman who comes from an ancient and magical celtic race, and her son Fergal (Bruton), hide in an outlying district of Edinburgh and use magic to protect themselves, but Cathal is determined to outsmart them. Local residents begin to die at the hands of an unknown life force, but is Cathal the killer, or is he trying to destroy the beast?

As far as we can tell there have been few screenings beyond the March 2010 premiere of Outcast and the Cannes Film Festival – until this weekend, reports www.britishmovieguide.com.

Here’s the official trailer:

Outcast has also been picked up for distribution in North America – however in the UK you might have to wait until the DVD comes out or for a few more cinemas outside of London to schedule it.
