Ever wonder what it would be like to be possessed by something evil? Ahead of the June 3rd premiere of Robert Kirkman’s Outcast TV series, Cinemax has released a new interactive trailer simulating the eerie experience of demonic possession.

To experience the unsettling, interactive Outcast trailer, visit:

"The trailer, created by Campfire, a part of SapientNitro, which can be experienced on www.PossessionBegins.com beginning May 27, uses 3D audio technology and eye-tracking software to create an immersive experience that uses viewers’ behavior – in this case, opening and closing their eyes – to explore the premise of the show and interact with the horror of OUTCAST firsthand. A webcam and headphones are recommended to achieve the maximum viewing experience but if a webcam isn’t available viewers will be prompted to use the space bar as a substitute.

Synopsis: Based on the Skybound/Image comic title by Kirkman and artist Paul Azaceta, Outcast stars Patrick Fugit as Kyle Barnes, who has been plagued by demonic possession all his life and has sequestered himself from those he loves for fear of causing greater hurt. Now, with the help of Reverand Anderson (Philip Glenister), a West Virginia evangelist who believes he is a soldier in God’s holy war against the forces of evil on Earth, the young man embarks on a journey to find answers and regain the normal life he lost. But what Kyle discovers could change his fate — and the fate of the world — forever."
