One of the scariest films of the past 15 years is among the movies on TV tonight
The movie was a big hit upon release and received a prequel just last year.
One of 2023's best thriller movies is now available to stream at home, but if you're looking for more films to watch, here are the ones airing on telly this Saturday night (16 September), starting with:
Orphan - AMC UK - 9pm
Our pick for tonight is this 2009 psychological horror about a married couple (Peter Sarsgaard and Vera Farmiga) who decide to adopt a 9-year-old Russian girl named Esther (Isabelle Fuhrman).
However, the parents slowly come to discover that their new daughter is not nearly as innocent as she claims to be.
A big box office hit upon release and a movie that has grown in people's estimation in the years since - to the extent that a prequel film was released just last year - Orphan is worth checking out for Fuhrman's incredible performance and for its unforgettable twists.
If you miss it tonight, Orphan is also available to rent on Apple TV, Google Play, Microsoft Movies and Rakuten TV.
