Staying in this Halloween night to avoid the bad weather?


Well, not to worry as there are plenty of movies on TV this evening, some of which are quite spooky.

Here are your options.

Underwater - Film4 - 9pm

Kristen Stewart stars in this sci-fi action horror about a group of workers on a drilling facility at the bottom of the ocean who encounter hostile creatures after an earthquake.


Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers / Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers - TCM - 9pm / 10.50pm

Two Halloween sequels are airing on Turner Classic Movies back-to-back tonight.

And if you enjoy the slasher franchise, why not also check out our recent article on Halloween III: Season of the Witch?

Jeepers Creepers - Horror Xtra - 9pm


In this early 2000s horror, two siblings (Gina Philips and Justin Long) in college are pursued by a demonic serial killer called The Creeper.

Arracht - TG4 - 9.30pm

This Famine-set Irish language drama has a perfect 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

The Bounty Hunter - Virgin Media One - 10pm


This critically panned action-comedy stars Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston.

Dracula - Virgin Media Three - 10.05pm

Marc Warren is Count Dracula in this 2006 TV movie adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic horror novel.

The Shallows - Film4 - 10.50pm

Our pick for tonight focuses on a woman (Blake Lively) who, while surfing on a secluded beach, finds herself in the feeding ground of a great white shark and stranded 200 yards from the shore.


Anchored by a magnetic lead performance, a handful of taut set-pieces and a tight under-90-minute runtime, The Shallows definitely ranks in the higher echelon of horror movies about killer sharks.
