Enjoy the Halloween Season - Take the Family to THE BOOK OF LIFE at the Movie Theater

I've been enjoying watching the new breakout hit television show THE STRAIN by filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro on the cable channel FX the last few weeks which is a really edge of your seat drama that is for vampires what THE WALKING DEAD is for zombies.  The Strain is way to gory and intense for children to view but Guillermo Del Toro has also produced a new animated feature film that will begin playing at movie theaters on October 17th just in time for Halloween called THE BOOK OF LIFE that is an animated movie you can be comfortable taking the family to for a spooky good time.

THE BOOK OF LIFE (rated PG) is a vibrant fantasy-adventure telling the legend of Manolo, a conflicted hero and dreamer who sets of on an epic quest through magical, mythical and wondrous worlds in order to rescue his one true love and defend his village.  This movie directed by Jorge Guttierrez features the voices of Channing Tatum, Zoe Saldana, Diego Luna, Ron Perlman, Ice Cube, and Danny Trejo.

UPDATE:  STEPHANIE G. from Dover, Arkansas is the winner of our THE BOOK OF LIFE Giveaway. Congrats Stephanie!
