'Odd Thomas'

A Dean Koontz suspense novel is the source of this melodrama with Anton Yelchin ("Star Trek") as the title character, a short-order cook who has the "Sixth Sense" gift - or curse, depending on your view - of being able to see dead people.

They're a malevolent bunch with sinister intentions, so he enlists his girlfriend (Addison Timlin, "Zero Hour") and the local sheriff (Willem Dafoe) to help him save their town. Patton Oswalt and 50 Cent also appear for director-screenwriter Stephen Sommers ("The Mummy"). ** (Not rated: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
