In for the night? Here are three creepy films to watch on TV

If you're looking for something good to watch this evening, you could do a lot worse than sticking on the telly.

Yes, flicking through actual TV channels rather than browsing on a streaming platform might seem almost quaint but there are a couple of spooky-season movies worth catching.

Here are our top picks:

 

Get Out

If you haven't seen this before you're in for a treat – and if you've managed to avoid spoilers about the film's ending, all the better. Get Out, comedian Jordan Peele's 2017 directorial debut, is a horror film in every sense but its darkly funny moments are what make it special.

Catch it on Channel 4 at 9.

 

Split

James McEvoy plays a man with 23 different but equally dangerous personalities who kidnaps three teenage girls in this M. Night Shyamalan psychological thriller. You'll be gripped James's stellar performance – or at the very least you'll get to see where the 'That wasn't me. That was Patricia' meme came from.

Split is on RTÉ 2 at 10pm.

 

Byzantium

A mother-and-daughter vampire duo, played by Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan, move into a rundown seaside hotel as they hide out from other vampires. Through flashback sequences, we learn how the women have survived and why they're on the run.

Byzantium is on Film 4 at 11.20pm.

 

Fancy Netflix instead? Here are five new additions to the streaming platform to get stuck into over the weekend.
