Best Hidden Gems on Netflix Worth Watching Right Now: Odd Thomas

Odd Thomas (2014)

Based on a Dean Koontz series of novels about a guy who can see ghosts and monsters, 2013’s adaptation of Odd Thomas missed the mark with critics and completely bombed at the box office. But that doesn’t mean you should steer clear—it’s really a quirky fantasy thriller that takes a refreshingly lightweight approach to the paranormal, something along the lines of Supernatural crossed with Dirk Gently. There are plenty of clichés along the way, and the cast certainly wasn’t working with a perfect script, but Odd Thomas is still a roundly entertaining gem worth digging up on a rainy day.
