Odd, but oddly entertaining.

I've never read a Koontz novel, but I don't think his target audience is pre-teens. Sadly, I'm not sure anyone much older would find the [film] to be more than novelty.

...easily stands as Sommers' most accomplished work to date.

Nightmarish imagery, violence abounds in dark-humored tale.

Even if "Off Thomas" would have likely had a more fruitful life on the small screen, it is still an enjoyably fast-paced way to spend 96 minutes—with a few additional surprises up its sleeve.

The film fails to establish a consistent tone and never becomes truly funny or scary as a result.
March 8, 2014
The best combination of scares, comedy, romance, eye-popping special effects and good ol' sass since 1990's "Ghost." At any rate, its a lot better than 1996's "The Frighteners."

It feels smaller and more rushed - and less plausible - than it should, but Anton Yelchin is charming, and the snappy comic tone sometimes works.
March 7, 2014
After Van Helsing, the first G.I. Joe and the Mummy movies, filmmaker Stephen Sommers just about keeps his excessive action instincts in check for this offbeat supernatural comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
March 5, 2014
The film never really veers enough away from Buffy The Vampire Slayer territory to mark it as a serious groundbreaking genre contender.

captures the feel and essence of Dean Koontz's writing

[Stephen] Sommers might be the worst director working who's not Uwe Boll, who at least has accidental charm.

Odd Thomas is a much better film than it's non-release would suggest. Hopefully one day it'll find it's audience and people will appreciate it for something other than just being better than Phantoms.

Odd Thomas should have been a scary horror movie with comic overtones, or a flat-out comedy with horror overtones. Instead, Sommers opts for a live-action version of a dumbed-down Scooby Doo adventure.

Yep, he's an odd one all right. You're likely to get tired of hearing about it pretty quick, though.

He sees dead people. She works in an ice cream shop. Limited release without MPAA rating? What gives?

February 28, 2014
Odd Thomas is an engagingly lightweight and occasionally visually inventive film that should appeal to Koontz fans and anyone else open to his whimsical approach to horror.

February 28, 2014
An endearing, witty romantic dramedy-slash-supernatural-thriller about a small desert town in California beset by demonic apparitions and a satanic cabal of deranged would-be mass murderers.

They've given this once-promising character a fate similar to death-a pretty bad movie.

February 27, 2014
Odd Thomas is a sloppy mixture of what could otherwise be a fun thriller. It's like a really lazy rip off of Peter Jackson's The Frighteners if it was made 18 years too late.
