One of the most infamous horrors of all time is among the movies on TV tonight

Your movies on TV menu for this evening has arrived.

Okay, admittedly, it isn't the BEST showing for movies on TV tonight. But there is one undeniably classic, and then a few others that might prove diverting, and then others still that should probably be completely avoided.


And if none of these suit, you'll be happy to hear that Amazon Prime Video has just added 28 very big movies to its library, so you can check one or more of those out too!

The Day The Earth Stood Still - FilmFour - 5.55pm

Keanu Reeves headlines this odd sci-fi movie about an alien who comes to Earth to warn humanity that their time on the planet is about to come to an end. Jennifer Connolly and Kathy Bates co-star, with a limp 20% score on Rotten Tomatoes, even though it isn't THAT bad...

Resistance - FilmFour - 8pm


Jesse Eisenberg, Bella Ramsey and Ed Harris star in this very mediocre 2020 WWII drama about an aspiring Jewish actor who joins up with the French resistance to help save thousands of orphans from the Nazis.

Coogan's Bluff - ITV4 - 9.15pm

This classic 1968 crime thriller sees Clint Eastwood head to Manhattan to bring a man to justice, only to encounter multiple confrontations on his way back home.

Swallow - FilmFour - 10.15pm


A very uncomfortable horror-drama about a young woman who has a seemingly perfect life, except she has developed a disorder to makes her want to consume inedible objects.

Rosemary's Baby - FilmFour - 12.15am

Our main pick from the movies on TV tonight is Roman Polanksi's 1968 horror set around Rosemary (Mia Farrow), who moves into a new apartment block with her husband. She soon becomes pregnant, and starts to hear and see strange things around her building, suspecting that her new neighbours might have some nefarious plans for her unborn child.

Widely regarded to be one of the very best horror movies of all time, if you've never seen it before, now is the time to fill in this particular blank in your cinematic history.


Before We Go - Channel 4 - 1am

Captain America himself Chris Evans directs and stars in this romantic drama about a street musician who crosses paths with a woman (Alice Eve) who misses her last train home, so the two embark on a night of travelling together. 29% on Rotten Tomatoes, unfortuately.
