These are my picks (complete with the reason for my choice) for the movies coming to theaters in January, but feel free to check out all of January's releases by visiting the Internet Movie Database's Coming Soon page.
week of January 1
Director: Quentin Tarantino
Why? It's Tarantino with his usual suspects. Expect greatness.
week of January 8
Director: Jason Zada
Why? That it's based on a real-life location should make this one extra spooky.
Director: Alejandro González Iñárritu
Why? DiCaprio takes the lead in a story about loss and survival, and he looks like a pretty believable badass in the trailer.
week of January 15
week of January 22
Director: J Blakeson
Why? Alien invasion.
Director: William Brent Bell
Why? Creepy dolls are creepy.
week of January 29
Director: David F. Sandberg
Why? There aren't many details about this yet, but the concept and source intrigue me. "A woman is haunted by a creature that only appears when the lights go out. A feature adaptation of the 2013 short film, "Lights Out" by David Sandberg."
Director: Gavin O'Connor
Why? It's nice to have a western to look forward to.
