March of the Soulless from 'Torchwood: Miracle Day' in Chicago

A freaky new cult took to the streets of Chicago and other major cities Thursday, marching up Michigan Avenue and around Navy Pier proclaiming a "Miracle Day" is upon us. Fear not, Chicagoans, it was simply a promotional stunt for the "Torchwood: Miracle Day," which premieres at 9 p.m. July 8 on Starz. The "March of the Soulless" was a reenactment of what viewers will see in the sci-fi series when the world faces Miracle Day, the first day that no one dies. The phenomenon continues, with immortality becoming the norm and causing humanity to react in all kinds of scary ways. The Soulless believe that if people don't die and thus can't go to heaven, they must not have souls. Apparently that means we should wear masks. One of the signs says "Who will save us?" If you know "Torchwood," you already know the answer to that. But tune in anyway, it's an awesome ride. Curt Wagner, RedEye's Show PatrolPhotos by Michael Rich/RedEye
