This was a good movie. I haven’t read the novel, Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz, so I cannot say if the adaption is close. If it is, well maybe I need to check out the other books in the series.
AntonYelchin is good as Odd Thomas. (I also liked him in Fright Night and Star Trek.) He is a short order cook who can see the dead. He can also see demons called Bordachs that hint at upcoming deaths. He solves crimes in his small town.
One day, a strange man enters Odd’s diner and there is a swarm of Bordachs around him. Odd starts to investigate and becomes convinced that there is a terrible tragedy coming to his small town. The rest of the movie is about Odd trying to figure out what might happen and how he can stop it.
I liked it. I found Odd and his girlfriend Stormy(Addison Timlin) likeable. I’d be interested if there was another movie.
I’d say this is more of an action movie with supernatural elements than a pure horror movie.
