Have you already checked out the new “shocking” horror on Netflix that is leaving viewers “speechless” after messing with their heads?

If yes, you can also watch the following movies airing on TV tonight (Thursday, 4 January).

Legends of the Fall – Film4 – 9pm
Our pick for tonight is this 1994 Western drama about three brothers (Brad Pitt, Aidan Quinn and Henry Thomas) and their father (Anthony Hopkins) living in the wilderness and plains of Montana in the early 20th century.

Spanning 50 years, the story depicts how each of their lives are affected by nature, history, war and love.

Co-starring Julia Ormond and from the director of Blood Diamond and The Last Samurai, Legends of the Fall is well-worth a watch thanks to its great cast, epic sweep and gorgeous cinematography.
