Paranormal movies releasing in theaters for the month of January include Daybreakers, The Book of Eli and Legion.
Daybreakers stars Ethan Hawke and is about a future in which vampires are overrunning the world and humans are the minority, hunted down for their precious blood. I never thought vampires everywhere would be a problem, but maybe I was wrong. (Released January 8)
The Book of Eli stars Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman, an actor I've adored and had a secret fetish for ever since Dracula. Okay, I guess it's no longer a secret. Anyway, the movie is about the all important book which hinges humanity's only hope for survival and its protector, Eli. (Releases January 15)
Legion is about a pregnant waitress, expecting the savior of mankind. She is protected by archangel Michael, played by Paul Bettany along with a small band of heroes who are trapped in a diner with her. See below about the popularity of angels recently. (Releases January 22)
