The Silence of the Lambs - ITV4 - 10pm

Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster are terrific in this '90s adaptation of Thomas Harris' novel of the same name from his Hannibal Lecter series.

To this day, The Silence of the Lambs is the only horror film to win the Best Picture award at the Oscars.

The Exorcist III - Horror Channel - 10.55pm

Our pick for tonight, this sequel to The Exorcist follows the policeman from that film William F. Kinderman (now played by George C. Scott) 17 years later.

This is as he investigates a series of murders in Georgetown that have the hallmarks of the deceased serial killer The Gemini (a terrifying Brad Dourif).

Written and directed by William Peter Blatty, who wrote the novel on which the original film was based, The Exorcist III completely ignores the events of the critically panned Exorcist II: The Heretic.

Instead, it functions as its own incredibly creepy supernatural murder mystery while also eventually tying into and expanding on the original's battle of good versus evil.

Armed Reponse - Syfy - 11pm

Wesley Snipes stars in this 2017 action-horror with a 0% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Honey Boy - Film4 - 11.20pm
