Small-town fry cook Odd Thomas is an ordinary guy with a paranormal secret: he sees dead people, everywhere. When a creepy stranger shows up with an entourage of ghostly "bodachs"- predators who feed on pain and portend mass destruction- Odd knows that his town is in serious trouble. Teaming up with his sweetheart, Stormy, and the local sheriff, Odd will plunge into an epic battle of good vs evil to try and stop a disaster of apocalyptic proportions. Based on the best-selling thriller by Dean Koontz, Odd Thomas is a supernatural action thrill-ride from the acclaimed director of The Mummy and The Mummy Returns.

Very predictable storyline but very well written. I enjoyed it.

I was totally surprised by this. Just when you think you've got the plot all figured out it changes and you find yourself going " I didn't see that coming". I would love to see a sequel. 4 stars out of 4.

Awesome movie! Has the perfect blend of story, acting and special effects. I was delighted to find that Odd Thomas was a different kind of paranormal movie that deals with the unseen and Odd's gift to perceive them and influence events as a result. Perfect movie for the whole family, although the monsters may be too much for very young children. This film makes me want to go out and read the books. I only wish it had done better at the box office. Quality material like this gets overlooked while garbage like "The Hunger Games" gets eaten up like candy. Sigh.

Update: Anton Yelchin, who played the title character Odd Thomas, died tragically on the same day i made this review. My deepest condolences to his family and friends; he was a fine actor and it's a shame we have been robbed of his presence. RIP!

A little too cutesy in the dialogue for my taste, but well suited for younger viewers, I imagine.

WOW! Saw the trailer while viewing another movie and HAD to see this. This is not some cheaply done B-movie at all. The FX are the new state of the art type quality...and the story adapted from a NY Times best seller by Dean Koonst is merely EPIC!

Yes....it gets a little campy here and there, but never boring. The protagonist and his girlfriend are really loveable and witty. The originality trumps big Hollywood productions such as the Divergent/Hunger Games dreck that has mass appeal but lacks the CLEVERNESS and IMAGINATION of this little gem.

Like the fairly recent "Now You See Me"....this one deserves not only a viewing...but a sequel.

BRAVO!

I don't know how i have never even heard of this movie! For one thing, I have loved pretty much everything I've seen Anton Yelchin in since 'Hearts of Atlantis' came out, amazing actor. Also, just my kind of show in general and I Loved it. Funny, creepy, interesting characters, great storyline. Definitely watch it.

Enjoyed this little gem. An interesting take on a 'I-see-dead-people' movie. You really come to feel for the main character. Even shed a tear near the end. Well done. Would highly recommend it.

I was a fan of the book first, and was very excited when I heard this was coming. With only a limited showing, I was lucky to find it on the web. I really and truly enjoyed it! The guy who plays Odd, was a perfect fit in my thoughts, and it was done at a good enough pace. I'd love it so much if they made another!

I can see where this film had a difficult time getting an audience. Too violent for youngsters, too disneyish for adults. Put me in the mode of when I watched Back to the Future for the first time but with more graphic violence.
But, it works if you just accept what it is..a popcorn movie.

I hadn't read the books, but following this movie, I just might - I found the delivery fun and tense enough to hold my interest. Also, I'm a sucker for a happy ending, and this almost qualifies. I wouldn't mind a sequel, though they'd have to work hard for a good story.

Odd: Have I ever told you you've got a lot of issues?
Penny: I'm a woman. We all have issues. It's what keeps us interesting and you men interested.
Odd: Oh, yeah. It's what makes us crazy and die younger.

Self Intro:

My name really is Odd. According to my mother, it was a screw up on my birth certificate. She says I was supposed to be called Todd, after a Lithuanian uncle. My father insists my name was always Odd, and he notes that all of my uncles are Bulgarian. My father claims
my mother is insane. My mother, of course, begs to differ.
