From Russia With Love - RTÉ Two - 12.35am

Unsane - RTÉ One - 12.40am

Our pick of the night is this tremendous psychological thriller, in which a young woman (The Crown's Claire Foy) becomes convinced that she is being stalked by a dangerous man. Instead of being believed, she is instead institutionalised with paranoia, only to discover that one of the doctors in the mental health hospital is the same man that was stalking her.

Director Steven Soderbergh (Contagion, Side Effects) creates a magnificently claustrophobic thriller within the walls of the hospital, paired with Foy's serrated, edgy performance.
