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.

Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer, 2014-02-28

 

Think Gilmore Girls, if there were an episode where Satan possessed Rory. Still, there are signs of life among all the dead.

Pete Vonder Haar, Village Voice, 2014-02-25

 

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

Bruce Ingram, Chicago Sun-Times, 2014-02-28

 

At once comic, tragic and goofily romantic, and resting too often on Odd's clarifying narration, this young-adult lark breaches the nonsense barrier with some regularity.

Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, 2014-02-27

 

Odd Thomas has high-speed chases, explosions, narrow escapes and masses of special effects-none special enough, I'm afraid, to save it from mediocrity.

Rex Reed, New York Observer, 2014-02-27

 

This expensive-looking indie, adapted from a supernatural book series by sci-fi author Dean Koontz, tries too hard for a wacky tone, and winds up merely brain-dead.

Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, 2014-02-27

 

In adapting Dean Koontz's series, Sommers nails the hero but bungles the world-building. Odd predicts mythological violence, but the climactic wreckage we see on screen is too real for what should play out as weightless entertainment.

Inkoo Kang, Los Angeles Times, 2014-02-27

 

What worked so well for Anton Yelchin as the protagonist of "Fright Night" - scrappy, clever young guy fights supernatural evil - falls flat in this adaptation of a Dean Koontz novel from director Stephen Sommers.

Sara Stewart, New York Post, 2014-02-27

 

A protective layer of irony ensures that the movie's commingling of the mundane and the bizarre never registers as camp.

Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, AV Club, 2014-02-27

 

Cast and crew generate an enjoyable sense of community in Odd's hometown. Odd Thomas just doesn't leave us with much desire to return there.

John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, 2014-02-25

 

The books' juggling of tricky tonal and narrative devices translates into a screen result less clever than arbitrary and silly.

Dennis Harvey, Variety, 2013-10-21
