...easily stands as Sommers' most accomplished work to date.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
March 24, 2014
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.

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."

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.

captures the feel and essence of Dean Koontz's writing

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 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.

ODD THOMAS has the feeling of a series pilot, which is exactly what the book was for Koontz.

Think Gilmore Girls, if there were an episode where Satan possessed Rory. Still, there are signs of life among all the dead.
February 20, 2014
For whatever the flaws - and believe me, there are a few - Odd Thomas is just such a goofball charmer that I happily succumbed to its pleasures.

Sommers, who adapted the screenplay himself, clearly has a passion for the material and Koontz's bizarre short order cook.

Slick, breezy, amusing, a little sloppy, and rather fun. Saturday matinee stuff.

this is anchored by Yelchin's central performance as a character so self-effacingly funny, so romantic, so decent and honourable, and yes, so charming, that all the supernatural goings-on fast become normalised, and never alienate.

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.

Nightmarish imagery, violence abounds in dark-humored tale.

March 21, 2014
The film fails to establish a consistent tone and never becomes truly funny or scary as a result.
March 7, 2014
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 5, 2014
The film never really veers enough away from Buffy The Vampire Slayer territory to mark it as a serious groundbreaking genre contender.
March 1, 2014
[Stephen] Sommers might be the worst director working who's not Uwe Boll, who at least has accidental charm.
