The best sci-fi horror movie of all time is among the movies on TV tonight

If you're in the mood to watch a movie tonight, then there are plenty to choose from...

Looking for a movie? Disney+ just added 12 big movies to its library, while one of the very best movies of the decade has just been added to Netflix.


But if it is movies on TV you're looking for, here are all the ones to watch (or avoid) this evening...

Suffragette - Film4 - 6.30pm

Carey Mulligan, Meryl Streep and Helena Bonham Carter star in this period drama about the fight for a woman's right to vote.

Alien - ITV4 - 9pm


Our main pick for the night was released in 1979 and remains the single greatest sci-fi horror movie ever made. Whether or not it is better than Aliens is still up for debate, but the sequel leans much heavier into the action side of things, so we're going to give the horror title to the original.

Sigourney Weaver plays a crew member on board of a deep space vessel who receive a distress signal from a mysterious planet, where they discover a new species... And things only get nightmarishly worse from there.

Hitman - Film4 - 9pm

Timothy Olyphant's attempt to bring the hit video games series to the screen wasn't very good, but it was better than the second attempt that arrived a few years later.

The Purge - ITV4 - 11.25pm
