Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Odd Thomas is a 2013 movie based on the Dean Koontz series of books. Nightmarish imagery, horror-movie violence, and moments of gore abound in this one. Also, there is an attempted mass murder in a shopping mall perpetrated by machine-gun-wielding characters. This movie also attempts to mine dark humor from images, as with that of a dead man with a severed arm using his severed arm to scratch his crotch, as well as well-timed flatulence from a decomposing cadaver that is covered in cockroaches. Although fans of the book series should appreciate the basic story of the titular character's clairvoyance used to stop the evils and horrors of this world, for those who haven't read the books, the gratuitous violence, bombastic production values, and stale humor don't make this the best way to start checking out Koontz's series.

Sexual Content

One character tells another to "get yourself some."

Violence

Frequent violence. Characters armed with machine guns attempt to carry out a mass murder in a mall. During this massacre, a man is shot at point-blank range. A man accidentally shoots two dogs with a shotgun. A woman pulls a knife on someone, acts crazy, and shrieks. A police chief is shot at point-blank range. Nightmarish imagery throughout. A head-on collision is shown between a semi and a car on a two-lane road. The refrigerator of a suspected killer has severed fingers crawling with cockroaches. A roach crawls out of the mouth of a decomposing cadaver. Characters get into fistfights and throw each other around. A man elbows his girlfriend in the face.

Language

Occasional profanity: "s--t," "ass," "bulls--t," "a--hole."

Social Behavior

As a dark-humored horror story, there isn't much in the way of positive messages.

Consumerism

Cigarette brands mentioned.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters drink beer and wine on occasion but do not act intoxicated. While rooting around a suspected killer's ashtray, the main character remarks on how there are "Winstons, Camels, and Marlboros" in the ashtray.
