Hollywood sure likes adapting Stephen King’s books and short stories into movies and television shows. And The Outsider is the latest Stephen King novel adapted for the small screen.
The Outsider tells the story of the aftermath of the rape and murder of an 11-year-old boy in a rural community.
All evidence points to one man being guilty. However, other evidence proves he was elsewhere at the time of the murder. And both things can’t be true.
As this is based on book by Stephen King, it won’t surprise you to learn that there’s a supernatural twist. However, The Outsider is more about tragedy, loss, and grief.
