Binge one of the best Stephen King adaptations in years

Police detective Ralph Anderson (Golden Globe-nominee Ben Mendelsohn from Bloodline and Ready Player One) is still grieving the death of his son when the mutilated body of 11-year-old Frankie Peterson is found in the Georgia woods.

The Outsider topped IMDb’s Most Popular Show list earlier this year and has an 82% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes. As AVClub says, “Gripping and gruesome, The Outsider is one of the best Stephen King adaptations in years.”..
