A great Irish horror is among the movies on TV tonight


You made it to the weekend. Well done.


And for movie lovers staying in this Friday evening, JOE has you covered.

Here are the best films on the box tonight.

The Hallow - Horror Channel - 9pm

In our pick for this evening, a British conservationist (Joseph Mawle) and his family move to a remote Irish village surrounded by a large forest where they find themselves targeted by the titular breed of "fairies, banshees and baby stealers".

What begins as a moody chiller playing on environmental and cultural tension erupts from the midway point into an energetically paced, action-packed and most importantly, genuinely scary fight for survival.

Quantum of Solace - ITV 4 - 9pm

With No Time to Die currently in cinemas, what better time is there to revisit arguably Daniel Craig's most underrated Bond outing.


The Mountain Between Us - Film Four - 9pm

Idris Elba and Kate Winslet must try to survive after becoming stranded on a snow-covered mountain after a plane crash.

The Matrix - Turner Classic Movies - 9pm

The sequel is also airing on the same channel at 11.50pm if you fancy a double bill.

Kingsman: The Secret Service - E4 - 9.15pm


Perhaps the original in the spy franchise is worth a revisit ahead of its prequel The King's Man coming to cinemas this year.

The Fugitive - RTÉ2 - 10pm

Harrison Ford plays a man framed for the killing of his wife and is forced to go on the run to clear his name. Tommy Lee Jones is the US Marshal assigned to track him down.

What follows is one of the best action thrillers of the '90s and maybe ever.


Sleepless - Virgin Media One - 10pm

All taking place over one night, this tense thriller centres on a cop (Jamie Foxx) with a connection to the criminal underworld who faces off against mobsters who have kidnapped his son.

The Handmaid's Tale - TG4 - 12.40am

Before the hit TV series, Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel was adapted as this 1990 film.
