"Odd Thomas" (2014)
In this story his little town is the scene of a significant evil plot, driven by Satan worshipers that Odd has to stop. It is exciting, a little scary and dramatically devastating in the end.
This is based on a book written by Dean Koontz. Apparently, he is a man of faith who tries to communicate some of his beliefs and opinions through his writings. What is refreshing about Odd Thomas is that it is mostly about telling a story, not preaching a message. However, the truths and ideas come through, without beating the hearer over the head.
The film is a lot of fun, but I don’t get the impression it will get any sequels, unlike the book which has several. I may have to check them out.
