The show, revolves around Kyle Barnes (Patrick Fugit) who has had a series of misfortunes in his life; his mother would beat him as a child and he was accused of attacking his own daughter. After attending an exorcism in his native town, he is convinced his mother and his wife were possessed and he was not the source of them going bad. He therefore teams up with Reverend Anderson (Philip Glenister) to try and save people that are possessed by demons while putting up with the residents of his town who think he’s bad news and would deserve to be in jail.

The show was created by Robert Kirkman, the man behind “The Walking Dead” and has a great mixture of realism and Superatural elements that should appeal to fans of shows like “Supernatural” and films like “The Conjuring”.
