A relentlessly tense thriller is among the movies on TV tonight

Movies on TV - Alone

It’s got a solid 94% on Rotten Tomatoes.

We’re half way through the week and if you’re looking for a bit of extra motivation to get through today, there are some great movies on TV to look forward to this evening.

Our pick of the bunch is a relentlessly tense thriller from 2020 – Alone.

The film follows a young woman (Jules Willcox) who desperately tries to escape a deranged and bloodthirsty psychopath (Marc Menchaca) in the Pacific Northwest wilderness.

The simple plot and vast wilderness setting adds to the tension which is ramped up throughout this film and polished off by some excellent performances by the two leads.

While gaining a very impressive 94% Critics Score on Rotten Tomatoes, the movie has proved a bit divisive since its release, with an audience score of just 53% .

However, if you’re looking for an entertaining psychological thriller with a simple but effective plot, then Alone is definitely the movie for you.

You can check out Alone on Film Four at 11.40pm.
