The movie adaptation of Dean Koontz's horror novel, Odd Thomas, puts an actual face on the demons that make bad shit happen to good people. And they are ugly.

From Stephen Sommers, director of The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, Mummies and Mommies, and Van Helsing, this new indie production stars Anton Yelchin as Odd Thomas, who has a unique ability.

Small-town fry cook Odd Thomas (Anton Yelchin) is an ordinary guy with a paranormal secret: he sees dead people, everywhere. When a creepy stranger shows up with an entourage of ghostly bodices—predators who feed on pain and portend mass destruction—Odd knows that his town is in serious trouble. Teaming up with his sweetheart Stormy (Addison Timlin) and the local sheriff (Willem Dafoe), Odd plunges into an epic battle of good versus evil to try to stop a disaster of apocalyptic proportions.

Now taking bets that Willem Dafoe's character knows more than he's letting on! We're actually banking on this being pretty fun, we miss the action/thriller/horror that Sommers (sometimes) balances so very well. Fingers crossed for this movie. Odd Thomas will be released in theaters on Feb. 28th.

I've seen this movie on demand. It's good. It isn't great but it's damn good. It's a comedy suspense. It is a detective thriller. It is a romance. It has action. It has well crafted effects. It walks you through the plot without being plodding or preachy. It is well cast. It is well acted. It has a very satisfying ending. In short: it goes the distance.

I won't say more.

I enjoyed this film enough that I hope it does well. I want sequels. This is a book and film series that I could get used to looking forward to. I ask you to go see it. You will enjoy yourself. And that is the highest praise I can think of.
